Right now, there are only three teams that we have played with a winning record - KC**, Seattle and Baltimore.
With TB, LAC, Atlanta, GB, Chi, LV, and Carolina all struggling, our “strength of victory” tie-breaker is taking a hit.
Are we worried? Nah!
I really do think we need to beat the Cowboys…before people start talking about this. Of course, with the number of people getting their material from Nate’s board here, let’s see how long it takes for this narrative to appear. Along with the asterisks again.
All that strength of schedule stuff is relative. We truly won’t know if we beat/lost to a good team until the season ends. And if we beat a bunch of teams that end the year 9-8…What does it truly mean??
It’s a typical trauma response from people. Like when a kid gets adopted into a nice family but they can’t accept it because they are afraid to trust and know in their heart they will be hurt eventually. So instead of accepting the new loving, caring, family they reject them and to try to sabotage the relationship, to just get the hurt over with. It’s like ripping off a band-aid. Just rip it off and get it over with because you know your going to get hurt anyway, so just rip it off fast and get it over with.
Lions fans are just a bunch of PTSD kids predicting a self fulfilling prophesy. That way when we eventually lose (it’s inevitable, all teams lose) we can point and say “See I knew it! I was right not to trust and hope for something better!”
No it is conference record… so if they lose 1 to nfc opponents and we lose 2 it is them, has nothing to do with common opponents until we have same nfc conference record as well as same overall record.
