    So our remaining schedule is:

    @Vikings
    @Bills
    Lions
    Jaguars
    @SEAHAWKS
    @Dolphins

    I think if we go 3-3 over the last 6 then we make the playoffs at 10-7. We have some seriously difficult road games left with the Dolphins game being the only one where it won't be deafeningly loud. Vikes, Bills and Hawks all extremely tough places to play. Add to that the Lions and Jags are playing better as of late. We're going to have to earn our way into the playoffs this year, that's for damn sure. I think we can do it. Haven't been this pumped for December football in years.

    If we are being honest, we aren't great - we've beaten up a lot of backup QBs thus far. The most positive thing is that there isn't an unbeatable team out there at the minute - I would not be surprised if we went 6-0 or 0-6 for the rest of the schedule. A new cycle in the NFL is just beginning and it looks like we might be a part of it.

    If we can put together a run of 10 games, played competently, my lifelong dream of Dan Feeney holding aloft the VLT could come true.

    We’re as good as Mike White will be. Period. I have never fallen for a backup QB on this team in my life, but something about MW is different. To me it’s the way the players believe in him that has me feeling optimistic. They seem to love him and he has the attitude and mindset of a leader. Learning the NFL game is extremely difficult, MW has been afforded the luxury that guys like Zach rarely get-the ability to sit and truly learn the nuances of NFL football for years before having to go prove it. The kid understands MLF’s play designs and he takes exactly what the play is designed to take. He may not have elite physical skills, but that’s exactly why you hone his intelligence the way we have. No QB is perfect over a 7 game stretch and I expect him to struggle at times, but he has a very good arm and makes good decisions. Hopefully his immobility doesn’t get him killed.

    That’s what pissed me off even more about both Pats games is that we handed them two wins we should have. That would put us at needed one more game or two to solidify our playoff dreams for this year. Saleh hs done great but to let those two games go when at least one was still winnable and he just had to bench that little punk kid makes me so mad

    The Jets are good enough to beat any team in the AFC in a January.

    There isn't a dominate team in the NFL. There are a few good teams. However we have seen plenty of dominate teams lose in January and MANY good teams lose as well.

    my WHOLE thing for ZW THIS year was... move out of the bottom 3rd of the league in QBR into the middle.

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/stats/player/_/table/passing/sort/adjQBR/dir/desc

    he was approaching this goal this year but had those 2 stinkers in a row. so you see the company ZW is in this year.

    MWs performance was WAY above avg this week. If we look at what Geno and Brissett are doing... THATS MW's target, imho.

    Efficient w/o being spectacular.

    We should know how good we are next week. Minnesota is one of the top teams and a big test. If the Jets can win this game, they are a team to be reckoned with.

    Yea it's wild to think about. I think Wilson could still be the starter if Breece didn't get injured. We probably get at least 1 win over NE and we could have been in first place in the division. Wilson would have just been exposed a little later.

    We might be able to win a road playoff game but I doubt we can beat Burrow or Mahomes. I also think Tennessee would be a bad matchup for us.

    Minny's D is a little suspect. Pats put up pretty healthy numbers on Thanksgiving. I like the Jets chances.

    I hope the Superbowl is Jets-Cowboys and Giant fans are forced to cheer for the Cowboys.

    Good team yes, but they play in one of the worst divisions in football. I think we can hang with them.
