    Last Super Bowl winner 'backed into' the playoffs with the worst record (9-7) of any paticipant.
    The year before, the Packers 'backed in' by winning a tiebreaker with the Bucs and Giants for the final playoff slot.
    I haven't heard of anyone on either team wanting to give the Lombardi back... ;D


And they [Giants] are positioning themselves to do it again.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

And just because a writer writes a post about something, it necessarily means that is how the team is thinking? F'ing brilliant.

And with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville.

The only way that this helps, is that it pushes the saints further behind us. Is anyone worried about who is behind us?

If we are worried about that then we don't deserve to make the playoffs in my opinion. Worry about winning and who is in front of you...Geez!

Exactly.  These guys are hoping more to back into the playoff than to earn a spot.
Would finishing 4-1 be backing into a playoff spot?

If they finish 4-1, then the Falcons beating the Saints was meaningless and the Bucs make the playoffs anyway.
