    is 12.

    the revs w/ 30 points with 5 games to play can reach a total of 45 points

    we have 34 points with 7 games to play...if we get 12 points in the next 7 games or the revs fail to get their max points we're in.

    for those of us, including me, who are worried about another end of season collapse after last saturday's performance....

    realistically if the revs go 3 wins and 2 losses in their remaining games, that leaves our number at 6.

    in that case we'd need to get 2 wins in our next 7 games.

    The last two games are a home & away against the Revs so.....

    The Metros need 6 points from the following schedule:

    vs. Columbus
    vs. DC
    at DC
    at San Jose
    vs. Dallas

    So a win against Dallas and one against either DC or Columbus sews-up a playoff spot before we play New England (assuming New England wins only one game prior to playing us)

    From DC?

    The way they're playing and the way we've been playing lately.......uh??? I think it's easier to get it from any of the other teams.

    It's different playing against dc. It's not like playing kc or ne.
