We actually still have a very decent shot at the playoffs.

The teams tied/ahead of us
- Denver
- Cincy
- Jax
- NYJ
- Tenn
- Pitt
- Buffalo

We play Jax so we control our fate there
Tennessee and Buffalo play each other - 1 is out
Pitt plays Baltimore and @Cincy - I don't see them winning both
Jets play @Miami and Oakland - go Dolphins
Denver plays Cincy and San Fran - go Cincy

That leaves Cincinatti and the Buffalo/Tennessee winner.

Buffalo plays @ Baltimore and Tennessee plays New England.

That's a lot of stuff to happen but none of it is crazy.

Cliff notes:
- Need Pitt to lose against Baltimore or Cincy
- Need Jets to lose AT Miami
- Need Denver to lose against Cincy or San Fran
- Need the Buffalo/Tennessee winner to lose their remaining game (against Baltimore or New England)

All of this and of course we need to beat Oakland and Jax.

I think there is a very good possibility of this happening as long as we win out. Of course, we'll just get blown out in round 1 and get a lower draft pick :cuss:

Actually, we don't need the Jets to lose out.

Cincy: L @ DEN, L vs. PIT

Denver: W vs. CIN, L vs SF (probably the craziest thing we need, Frank Gore pretty much has to go off)

Jax: W vs. NE, L @ KC

NYJ: W @ MIA, W vs. OAK

Buffalo: W vs. TEN, L @ BAL

Tennesee: L @ BUF, W vs. NE

Pittsburgh: L vs. BAL, W @ CIN

Kansas City: W @ Oak, W vs. Jax

That's what you're rooting for right there. If that's how the last two weeks play out, the Jets would be the 5 seed, we'd be the 6 seed. Good luck.

Actually, none of those losses are that crazy except for SF winning in Denver, which will pretty much take Frank Gore going off and dominating the game and Cutler making some rookie mistakes. The odds of all these happening exactly as planned though, are pretty remote.

*shudders*

What really pisses me off is how much better our pass rush, blitzing, and our secondary was yesterday compared to the Browns game. Talk all you want about how shitty we played at San Diego, and how LdT ran all over us, but our pass defense was pretty damn inspired, largely due to shutting down SD's passing attack. The only team that held them to less points was Baltimore, and that was at Baltimore.

If we could have just gotten one aspect of our pass defense going against the Browns, pass rush, blitzing, or secondary ball-awareness, we probably would have won. Yet our pass defense was just all around horrible that game. No pressure from the line, hardly any blitzes, and the secondary could not get anywhere near the ball once it was in the air.

Miami started the de-railing process unfortunately. We were riding REAL high after dominating the Rams.

I still will watch and hope we play well the next 2 weeks but man, this is really frustrating, year after year!

I completely understand why people would rather not see the Chiefs knocked out of the playoffs in the first round and in embarrassing, ass-kicked-to-the-curb fashion, Mr. Nzoner. But I would like them to make it, if possible, for two reasons;

1. Life is short and I get to watch them play one more time.

2. It gives the players one game of post-season experience that may be beneficial in later years.

They may not be good reasons, but they're all I've got.

3 out of 4 teams have to lose their last two games of the season and we have to beat Oakland on the road - it's Oakland sure, but its also on the road, then we have to beat a playoff hopefull at home.



Jets won't lose to Oakland

There is a small possibility that the Jags might lose 2 (NE and us)

Cinnci had Pittsburg and Cleveland so they probably won't lose any either - at most 1

Denver has the 49ers so they will probably win at least one more too.


I think there's a better chance of the Royals going to the World Series next year than us making the playoffs. Could it happen? Mathmatically sure, but realistically? No.

Actually, if we can lose the last 2, we will have a fair chance of drafting in the top 10.


I'd be for playing younger players (and QBs) and drafting in the top 10 more than trying to make the playoffs and drafting at 20.


We need top talent more than we need to miss the playoffs by half a game.

The Chiefs in no way deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with other playoff contenders. Period.

IF that happened, and Denver managed to also lose to the 49ers, then we'd miss the playoffs behind Cinnci and the Jets.

FWIW, Denver/Cinnci are guaranteed one more win since they play each other. So, we need the loser of that game to lose 2 AND the Jets (who still play Oakland) and Jacksonville both need to lose the rest of their games.



I don't know why people are hoping though. We controlled our destiny and lost to the Browns. We were still in it and couldn't beat the Ravens at home. With the odds stacked against us and the emotions from Lamar Hunt's passing, we couldn't muster enough mojo to even score a TD against the Chargers. I can't believe people actually think we deserve the playoffs. AND, does anyone really think we can win 3 straight games on the road to get to the SB against some of the best teams in the AFL?


Play the Rooks, lose, get a top 10 draft pick and also maybe pick up a first round prospect that drops to the top of the 2nd round. It's time to play for the future.

Oh no, I have no illusions of us making the playoffs. I was just commenting on GoChiefs' statement that he'd shave his head if San Francisco beat Denver (he didn't qualify it with anything else).

I can absolutely see San Francisco being a 2006 version of one of those teams that finish the year strong. I can see them beating Denver.

What really sucks, is Denver might get New England in the first round... and Shanahan always does well against them, they've already went up there once and won.

No, in that scenario, the Jets or Pats would be the 5 seed, we'd be the 6 seed. I was trying to take the Jets out of our equation, because everybody thought we were finished because the Jets aren't losing out. But there's a scenario where the Jets don't matter to us... and really it doesn't require that many upsets. Just a bunch of things to fall in line perfectly. The Bengals losing out is far more realistic than the Jets losing out. We're a game behind both, and they have tiebreakers on us, we'd need one of them to fall behind us.

We have a better shot at making the playoffs than improving our draft position that much. I'm almost not kidding. The NFC is littered with 7-7 and 6-8 teams, and we probably aren't winning draft tiebreakers with any of them because their strength of schedule is weak.

We're basically stuck in purgatory. We need all these 8-6/7-7 AFC teams to lose out to make the playoffs, or we need all these 7-7/6-8 teams in the NFC to win out to improve draft position. We just don't have any tiebreakers on anybody.
