It isn't going to be easy to make the Playoffs. Looks like another nail-biter down the stretch. We simply cannot miss the Playoffs this year. Period. If we do, you'll start hearing me call for a change in management (Emery) despite how well I feel he's built the team.

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
I really like this schedule. While having 6 of the first 9 games on the road is a bit daunting, the upside is that it results in 5 of the last 7 being at home. That really sets them up to finish strong & build momentum heading into the playoffs. They bye week is scheduled at the best possible time right in the exact middle of the season and it leads into the annual trip to Lambaugh. Our next toughest game in the 2nd half of the season (at least on paper as things stand today) is the Saints game and we're coming off a Thursday game for that so another extra bit of prep time. If they can pick up even just 4 or 5 wins during that tough 9 game opening stretch, then I like their chances to make a strong push into the playoffs in the 2nd half of the season.
Wouldn't it be great if we booted the 200 lawyers from the House and Senate and replaced them with economists? That way, we'd stop harming our economy with laws that would apply to the politicians, too.
