    Have read many,many,many negative threads. This week I am sure we will see The Jets kick the crap out of the Broncos leaving us only one win behind. We need to take care of Atlanta in our house!

    I really hope all the players are taking stock, really soaking in the fact we are still in the hunt despite our record. No more missed opportunities!

    Do or die this week, go Bolts!

    On one hand, I don't know if I want to be the team that wins the AFC West at 8-8 (or worse?)

    On the other hand, making the playoffs is making the playoffs and a minimal chance is better than no chance.

    That, and 3 division titals in a row would be nice, even if the last one would be a tad tainted.

    I feel the same way. I'm looking more towards next season.
    As long as we beat the Raiders, I'll be happy.

    Making the playoffs would be nice but I don't want to just make the playoffs. I want a Super Bowl title.

    I'd just hope they don't use making the playoffs at 8-8 as an excuse to keep Norv for another year.

    We CAN'T rely on ALL of our division rivalries to suck next season.

    I don't think they will, it's looking bad for Norv right now. I just just hoping the guy could turn his career around, it would have been a good story.

    Exactly, but one game at a time. At this point we need to run the board. Our defence has been coming on strong lately, hopefully it's time for our team to get hot.

    True we need to win this weekend....but the true test is when we go to KC and to TB.

    I can count 3 games the broncos should lose, so we have room for 1 more loss. Anything after that, you can call it a wrap!!

    Going to the playoffs with an 8-8 record is like winning a hundred bucks in a million dollar lottery.

    Yeah, but you get a chance to play in the mega-millions, regardless of HOW you got there. Style points are optional. I just want to get there, then see what happens.

    Plus I'd really hate to LOSE to an AFCW divisional champ with an 8-8 record. :icon_eek:

    This is it "exactly" - a win vs. Falcons was a clear word in the beginning of the season. Now our aim has to be a win in just the next game, don't looking what Denver is doing.

    In the back of our minds can be: (if we get this 3rd division title, even with 8-8.... everything is possible. The players
    have to execute, not the coaches.)

    Knowing the Broncos they'll probably beat the Jets but somehow lose to the Chiefs. Or something crazy like that.

    Anyways only way it's ok to keep Norv after going 8-8, is if that's good enough for the playoffs and we do some damage. Like make it to the SB type damage.

    If Norv can somehow take this team to the SB after all the **** that happened in the regular season he deserves to be back another year.

    Obviously winning the SB would be a hell of a lot better though.

    If we get there that's good I just don't see the team being successful with team like the titans or getting very far.

    Only way the Chargers win tomorrow is 1. 3 or more turnovers by Atlanta 2. HUGE lead going into the 2nd half.

    Otherwise, kiss it goodbye boys & girls.

    As the Patriots showed last year, it doesn't matter what your record is when you get to the playoffs. It's 0-0 once the post season starts.

    We have to win to be in any hunt regardless of what Denver does.

    I agree with all of the comments. I would love to make the playoffs especially if we are riding a hot streak into them. 8-8 would be fine as long as we move towards the ultimate goal.... THE SUPER BOWL!!!! I really feel we need to put pressure on a rookie qb in Matt Ryan. If we can do that then i feel we can win this game against Atl. Talk to you guys tomorrow when we are posting that we are 5-7 and a game out of 1st.

    GO BOLTS!!!!

    Keep throwing to VJ because he is THE MAN!!!!!!

    That will depend on how deep we get into the playoffs. If we make it, it's a new season. Don't color me optimistic about our chances of either making the playoffs or making much of a dent if we actually make it. If, by some quirk of fate, we get our mitts on the Lombardi, then Norval earns his keep for sure. Otherwise, a playoff performance like last year will probably keep him here. Fact is, though, he appears to be losing a number of players.

    The only way I accept Norv coming back next year is if he ends this season hoisting the Lombardi.

    I doubt that happens, but that's what it'd take.
