How close to playoff elimination are we? 

Post#1 » by CZ Eddie » Mon Nov 27, 2017 2:55 am

We're pretty far out of the wildcard race.
How soon till we know we're eliminated for sure?
A couple/three more losses or are we basically already eliminated?

Not sure how close to elimination we are but I do know that 1 more Cowboys loss or Eagles win and Philly will win the NFC East.

For all practical purposes, we're done. Even with Atlanta and Carolina still having to play each other twice along with each having a game against the Saints, the Lions have a very favorable schedule. So I would make a guess at this point that Detroit along with one of those NFC South teams will grab the Wild Card slots. It's going to take at least a 10-6 record to be in the mix and it's looking more and more like it'll take 11-5 to be in for sure. Based on the last few weeks, I don't see 5 wins in a row here.

One more loss and we're done. That's not gloom and doom. Strictly numbers.

At this point every win only hurts us.

Even if we run the table and get Zek back, I don't think 10 wins will get us in the NFC. Imho, it will take 11 to get in. But funny things have happened all year, so who really knows.

The whole key of us making the playoffs, if we run the table, is Tampa Bay upsetting Atlanta Tonight which I don't see happening.

This tweet pissed me off this morning...

Like Cowboys fans needed that one. If the Cowboys had beaten the damn Rams... or had not crapped all over themselves against the Falcons... or had properly managed the clock and not gave Rodgers that time at the end of the Packers game... this would all be a moot point.

Keep the faith. A lot of weird and funny things have happened this season. Kinda strange if you ask me how things are so different every 3-4 weeks.

So I guess all of us at Cowboy Nation are pulling for the Bengals and Saints this week. :nod: :pray:

Another wonderful performance by DEZ. Glad he is getting top WR money :banghead: And to top that off, how about first and goal with one of the best O-lines and RB in the league, and we don't run once. As for me, that's another stake in the coffin for Garrett and Linnehan. Absolutely pathetic.

Let’s not forget 2nd and goal with one of the best O-lines and RB in the league and we don’t run again.

And yes. Dez needs to go. Don’t know how that impacts us salary cap wise but he has become TO. And we all know how that went.

You already know that I have wanted to get rid of Dez for over 3 years now. You really think his trade value is better today thank it was 3 years ago? I sure as hell don't.
