In the Hunt. Out of the Hunt. In-Out, In-Out, In-Out, In-Out...

To re-review one of our futility stats, to be "in the hunt" for a playoff spot, a team can't be more than one game below .500 and can't have more than seven losses. Since this is becoming a classic In-and-Out year for the Bungles, let's track the situation more closely.

Also keep in mind that the first week is omitted when counting the In's.

Week 1 . . . Loss . . . 0-1 . . . n/a
Week 2 . . . Loss . . . 0-2 . . . Out
Week 3 . . . Loss . . . 0-3 . . . Out
Week 4 . . . Win. . . . 1-3 . . . Out
Week 5 . . . Win. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 6 . . . Bye. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 7 . . . Loss . . . 2-4 . . . Out
Week 8 . . . Win. . . . 3-4 . . . In
Week 9 . . . Loss . . . 3-5 . . . Out
Week 10. . . Loss . . . 3-6 . . . Out
Week 11. . . Win. . . . 4-6 . . . Out


If they lose next week at Jacksonville as we expect them to, they will again be two games below .500 and "out" of the hunt. Given that all the rest of their games seem winnable even though they're an awful team, this in-and-out thing could easily continue for another six or seven weeks, at which time the sheep will all be thoroughly exhausted.

Again, the seven loss limit is like an estimate. It may not be accurate this year as an 8-8 record might garner a playoff berth. So... this in-out business could continue through the bitter end of the regular season.

By the way, where's T?

EDIT: Table updated through Week 11.

I think for all practical purposes you can pencil them out now. With that putrid OL there's no way they can get it done. It's amazing Dalton hasn't been knocked out yet.

Agreed. There's no way Dalton is making it through the season. But just for fun, let's see how often they are statistically in the hunt.

I liken the OL to pitching in baseball. Try to win without it.

There are the Pats, Steelers and Chiefs. One of those three will probably suffer an upset in the playoffs (possibly to the Bills, but given that franchise's history, I'm expecting a cooloff) and there are two irrelevant teams fixing to make the playoffs. Whether the Bengals are one of those two irrelevant teams remains to be seen but I'm not putting any money on it.

I'd hate to be a QB for the bungs. A lot like throwing the Christians to the lions. If he's smart he'll get out as soon as possible.

I haven't seen any games lately but this thread is a tribute to the Red Guy Dalton being tough.

I thought he'd be done by Week 5 with that line.

Tough. May not be Montana or even Luck....but nails.

Week 3 . . . Loss . . . 0-3 . . . Out
Week 4 . . . Win. . . . 1-3 . . . Out
Week 5 . . . Win. . . . 2-3 . . . In

Next week they play at Tennessee who has a tendency to play down to the competition. We will all be better off if the Bungs lose that game.

It did take the Titans overtime to beat the Browns but it still won't stop them from beating the Bungs. Then after that it will be the Broncos who got sh!t on today in Philadelphia but again the Bungs will lose there also. I honestly see about 3 or 4 more wins with a win over the Browns and a couple meaningless home wins in December. They'll finish 6-10. And hopefully Marvin resigns after that.

The loss to the Titans should put the sheep out of their misery. The Bungs are now three games below five hundred.


Week 1 . . . Loss . . . 0-1 . . . n/a
Week 2 . . . Loss . . . 0-2 . . . Out
Week 3 . . . Loss . . . 0-3 . . . Out
Week 4 . . . Win. . . . 1-3 . . . Out
Week 5 . . . Win. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 6 . . . Bye. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 7 . . . Loss . . . 2-4 . . . Out
Week 8 . . . Win. . . . 3-4 . . . In
Week 9 . . . Loss . . . 3-5 . . . Out
Week 10. . . Loss . . . 3-6 . . . Out


The remaining schedule is...

- @ Denver
- Cleveland
- Pittspuke
- Chicago
- @ Minnesota
- Detroit
- @ Baltimore

I don't know how anybody could foresee more than two more wins out of that. Cleveland and maybe a disappointed team that's out of the race and is mailing it in, possibly Detroit or Baltimore. Chicago is going to ram the ball down their throats.

Burfict is looking at another suspension. Pacman and William Jackson are injured. Kevin Minter is still injured. Their terrible O-line lost tackle Jake Fisher for the rest of the season. It's time to play all the young guys, but they were kind-of doing that already.

Before the season started I was joking around with a frind and I think I said the bungs would go 6-10 and he said that was his pick so I relented and said 5-11. that might do it as I see only 2 more winnable games here. Obviously the season was lost before the bungs played a snap but the thing I can't understand is WHY? Everyone here I think knows you can't win without a good OL but mikey let it go to seed. Who did mike get advice from - giggles, Zampeze, Alezander??? These men have been in the business for years - what made them think they could get it done with the OL they had which was pi$$ poor at best? What were they smoking, snorting, drinking or shooting???

Don't look now, but a win against Cleveland (at home) next week puts them back in the hunt.


Week 1 . . . Loss . . . 0-1 . . . n/a
Week 2 . . . Loss . . . 0-2 . . . Out
Week 3 . . . Loss . . . 0-3 . . . Out
Week 4 . . . Win. . . . 1-3 . . . Out
Week 5 . . . Win. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 6 . . . Bye. . . . 2-3 . . . In
Week 7 . . . Loss . . . 2-4 . . . Out
Week 8 . . . Win. . . . 3-4 . . . In
Week 9 . . . Loss . . . 3-5 . . . Out
Week 10. . . Loss . . . 3-6 . . . Out
Week 11. . . Win. . . . 4-6 . . . Out


It's a dead cat bounce, alright, but based on the criteria they're still alive.

4 very good players mikey let walk - Sanu, M Jones, Zeitler, Whitworth that are gone that are contributing to their teams with the exception of Zeitler who went to Siberia. Is mikey that tight, inept, or getting bad advice to let these 4 go? Instead of being on the outside looking in they could be challenging the Steelers for the top spot. True the wildcard in this if they still had these guys is giggles who is the Dusty Baker of the NFL.

"The remaining schedule is...

Uhhhh yeah. With a schedule like that, it's not boding well for the Bungles. My 3-13 prediction is dead (hey, do you blame me? I thought that offensive line was worth a 3-13 prediction).

I'll bet Coach Zimmer puts a stake through the heart of the Bungles Season this year. I'll bet that victory will be sweet for him. LOL
