Dropping all kinds of balls? Get out of here.


In Topic: Jacksonville Jaguars Vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (race for the #1 overall pick)

Slow down. Nobody said anything about the Eagles and Lions. Why should we care about them?

 

It will be easy to root against the Browns one time: the week they host the Jaguars. But they don't scare me, being chronic losers like the Bills. Speaking of the Bills, why do you think we can never root for them? We want them to lose twice - in Jacksonville and against Tampa Bay - but the rest of the year, it is OK to want them to win.

 

Nothing is simple here. After a team finally wins a game, it will be tied with the Vikings, who have a brutal schedule because of the division they are in. We also would be no worse than one game behind a lot of teams if current trends continue.

The Buccaneers played the Eagles and Lions. They win, and it's good for us to win the tiebreaker as it makes their strength of schedule stronger.

 

What I meant is the Bills are irrelevant because them winning or losing doesn't affect the difference between Tampa's Strength of Schedule and ours.

It's simple as this, to win the tiebreaker over Tampa Bay, we need the entire AFC South and AFC West to lose games, and we need the entire NFC South and AFC East (outside of Buffalo who we both play) to win games. Also root for the Eagles and Lions and root against the Browns.

Plus Tampa Bay has played 3 division games already.

 

Jacksonville has played only 1 division game.

 

Since you play divisional opponents twice, every time you play a game against a division rival and lose, you add 2 more opponent wins to your combined strength of schedule. 

 

That means we're in trouble if we finish with the same record as Tampa Bay. Getting the tiebreaker is not impossible, but I wouldn't bet on it. We need to out lose them if we want the #1 pick. They must win a game.

Right now the Bucs barely hold the tiebreaker. Their opponents (division rivals count twice) have lost 62 games. Ours have lost 61 games.

 

Blame the Falcons.
