    Dolphins get their last home game, against the 49ers with a gimpy Frank Gore, as the most amazing turnaround in pro sports history still has a chance of happening.

    Eagles and Bucs will be the NFC wild cards

    Cowbell, if the Dolphins make the playoffs, you gotta start a tout website. That'd be uncanny.

    Eagles would be some story too.

    How many .500 or better last place teams will there be? Three? Bills, Redskins/Cowboys, Saints/Falcons?

    If the Bills are .500, that will be a miracle that will almost assuredly include a win in Denver.

    If that were to happen, the Chargers would still have a shot.

    The NFL has played Russian Roulette with these four-team divisions and have been really lucky there hasn't been a 7-9 winner.

    Dallas will be fine. But I've said for years they need to add one more playoff team in each conference. Only the team with the best record in each conference gets a first-round bye.

    Yeah, let's see if we can't get some more 8-8 and 7-9 teams in the playoffs. ::)

    There's no point even having a division if you play your competition only six times.

    Proof that Jerry Jones might know business and might know how to make money, but teams aren't fantasy football, and that little human element tends to be overlooked.

    Bring in all the talent you wish, Jerry. But it has to work with one another, and nothing you can say or do changes that. Including your stupidity with Marion Barber.

    The kid that replaced Barber did not do too badly.

    I think he broke off a 50-yard run or a catch and run. I want to say he had over 150 total yards.

    Now the Cowboys have a more healthy Barber for the Giants, and I think beating the Giants is much more important for the Cowbays than beating the Steelers.
