Caution! This is a no Homerism zone, realistic expectations backed up by reason only.
Don't let up do you Roy!!!! HAHAHAHAHA
i am afraid after todays loss i truly believe we will not make it past the first round....and neither will denver. neither of us have proven that we can beat good teams no less a really good team. denver couldn't beat the CHIEFS w/o all of our mistakes, and we can't stopo making them even against bad teams like the raiders.

Perspective, people....PERSPECTIVE. Each week and each game is a different entity. What happened today doesn't mean jack-$h!t as far as what may happen in the post-season. Just ask the 2011 Giants team about that or the 15-1 Packers team that the Giants so easily dismantled up in GB in the 2nd round of the playoffs.
Do think we have a good chance of getting at least one game in the playoffs, but the reality is that we have not put together a full game against good competition. We have the 4th worst strength of victory in the LEAGUE (strength of victory is the record of the opponents that we beat). The only teams with a worse SOV are nowhere near playoff contention. There is a large disparity in our strength of schedule compared to strength of victory, more so than any team near playoff contention. To me, this means our performance against good teams has been poor.
Does that mean we are going to lose? No. But it does mean we need to step it up if we want to go anywhere in the playoffs. It also doesn't help that we haven't had Houston for a lot of the games against good competition.
I can see us winning a game, maybe two, but no further than the AFc champ game. We're not there yet
