no game is a gimmie. You need to win every game first before you can be sure. I think our team will win agaist the Titans and we are 7-1 after this. Could end up 6-2 too. Nothing is for sure. Nothing is guaranteed in this sports.

Just another thought:
Our D scores instead of forcing the other team to punt. This gives our offense less time on the field to come together and get things rolling. Next problem as we have seen against the Panthers: If we don't win the ball via turnover, we can't force them to punt. It's a either or situation.
You are right that Tice isn't the best OC and his play calling is questionable. What is wrong is that we have to worry. Marshall is on pace for a career year, Forte can do more than he shows and having a healthy and fit Bush will help us down the stretch. We win without the offense now, without them being wearing down. They have much football left this year before they need the rest.
I would want to see them score more points, Cutler throwing more TDs and Forte/Bush having 20+ yard runs and be seen in highlights. In the end, I don't really care about this as long as they find a way to win games. If we win with our D scoring more than the O, I'm happy with it. If our D sucks and the O outscores the other team, I'm fine too. If we score via STs and win because of this it's good too. All that matters is this one special statline. Win - Lose.
Our team has found a way to win 6 out of 7 games.
IND has a winning record
DET would have a winning record with a W against us
STL would be tied with a 4-4 record
DAL would have a winning record with a W against us
JAX and CAR are just not good enough
In other words, 3 out of our 6 opponents would be Winning teams if they would have beat us. 1 of them would be tied and not negative. We are part of the reason WHY they have a losing record.
We need about 5 more Wins to make the POs.
does anybody really think we are not able to win 5 more games? I don't see a scenario in which we don't make the POs. Campbell is not Hanie. Bush is not Bell. Those were starters and are proven NFL players.
We have some good WR depth. D is good and does not rely on 1 or 2 players alone. Have 4 good CBs, solid LB depth and the DL has some nice depth too.
German, those are all great points.
We need to stay healthy, and get into the playoffs - playing our best ball at that time of the year. I am soooooo hoping we see the offense clicking tomorrow.
Well you are right the line needs to step it up and maybe cut out drop backs for passes and add more roll outs
