Here is a cool little tool. He can change the scenarios and tells you the seeds...

according to the playoff calculator...   

if Bucs lose to Carolina AND Atlanta,  the Bucs can still get the #2 seed, assuming New Orleans takes care of business in their games vs Carolina and Atlanta.  Obviously Bucs would have to beat SD and Oak in RJ.     In a way, we want Carolina and Atlanta to beat the Bucs to get better records to push Dallas and/or the Redskins out of the playoffs.   My point is, its not the end of the word if the Bucs lose Carolina and Atlanta.

Is this serious?

I'd actually prefer if Dallas gets the #6 seed. They may be able to take out the Giants for us.

10-6 Dallas and 10-6 Redskins have the tie breakers over  10-6 Carolina and 10-6 Atlanta.

if Bucs defeat Carolina AND Atlanta, then Dallas and Redskins likely make the playoffs and Carolina and Atlanta do not.     Good point about Dallas getting the #6 seed to take out the Giants.

Who cares?

There is no good reason for the Bucs to lose the next two games.

If we win the division, it doesnt matter if Dallas gets in. We would have them at Ray Jay and I think we can beat them there.

The only bad thing is if we and Dallas are fighting for a wild card, they have the head-to-head over us.

theres no good reason for Bucs to lose the next two games, but if we did, we should still win the Division and still get the #2 seed assuming the following:

Bucs defeat SD and Oakland
Carolina loses @ NY Giants, @ New Orleans
Atlanta loses @New Orleans

Bucs can lose Carolina and Atlanta, and has about a 50-50 chance of still getting the #2 seed.

That's a much way to put "we want Carolina and Atlanta to beat the Bucs."

Do not want to see Atl or Car 3 times in one year,especially two games being that close together.

We just have to win one of the next two.

Tuesday AM will tells us a lot as far as Dallas, Washington and the NFCS.

my point was..   Bucs need to win TWO games of the next 4 at a minimum to get the #2 seed.   And it may not matter which two games.   Obviously you want to control your own destiny and it isnt a sure thing that New Orleans would beat Atlanta and Carolina in the Superdome, but it makes the Bucs next two games less stressful knowing there are other likely scenerious to still get that #2 seed.

It will help me cope with the stress on Monday night when we're up by 3 points vs Carolina and all we have to do is run the clock out and Gruden calls two passing plays that go incmplete, giving Steve Smith one more chance to beat us.   It helps me cope.

Alot of you complain about "NO RESPECT"... Having another team take out a team(s) doesn't earn you respect... Man up and handle your business...

You dont want to pin your hopes on what other teams do...especially in the NFL where nothing is a given. You want to go out there and take care of your own business.
