Call Me Crazy But.......

I don't see us losing more than 2 or 3 more games the rest of the season!

Here is my belief:

We've already played the toughest part of our schedule, playing well in every game but one. In each of our losses, except for the game against Minnesota, we have lost by a touchdown or less (it was just 2 points in losses to the Packers and Eagles). I truly believe if we had Matthew Stafford and a couple other guys healthy (Levy and Delmas) we may have only lost the Minnesota game. 

This week we have a bye. After that, we play a VERY overrated Redskins team and the New York Jets, in Detroit. After last week's win at home against the Rams, I truly believe Ndamukong Suh when he says, "I promise we won't lose another home game". Our toughest opponents for the rest of the season play against us in Detroit (the Patriots and Jets). If we win every game at home for the rest of the season, that alone gives us 6 wins. With games in Buffalo and Tampa almost certain to be locks, we could win 8 games to finish the season. I think the toughest game for the rest of the season is the game against Miami, in Miami. Finishing the season 8-1 will give us a 9-7 record, something most of us never could have imagined.

Now, the key to finishing the rest of the season strong is this bye week. During the bye, if we get Levy, Stafford, Best, and Delmas fully healed (yes Best and Delmas played, but they were hurting), that is a start. Also, we must find a way to limit the penalties. I think having a few more home games will get us the calls we deserve (so far we either beat ourselves or got beat by the zebras, NOT the other team). We must also find a way to get this offensive line to push the pile better. Best should have at least three 100 yard games so far, but there has been ZERO push up front. The secondary has been a pleasant surprise so far, but we CANNOT afford a collapse. We have to maintain the play we have had these past three weeks.

Ok, enough talk, tell me what you think........
