Before the season, the median record people agreed we'd need to have a chance in the end after this spot was 3-4. Most people had one of the 4 loses to Arizona or Seattle, since we swept the division, you'd think people would realize we're in better shape than that median predicted. For some reason, once it got into the season, people seemed to think we need to be 7-0 or 6-1 to have any chance now.
. We are still in pretty good position to take the west. Like everyone knew prior to the season the O-line is our weakspot and to compensate the qb needs to be decisive and be able to get the ball out quick. Smith has been able to do that. Consistency is our ?? right now. If we can be more consistent on both offense and defense (obviously more so on offense), than we should pull the West out.
