Wah, wah, wah.......What a bunch of whiners. We just about beat a 7-0 team, and you guys are whining about it. Sorry kids, things just don't happen overnite.
Forgot to look at the bright side. We held one of the best QBs in NFL history to no touchdowns. We made him look "normal and confused". They got a touchdown on
a play that no one would have schemed for. Yes, they marched down the field, but we held them to 3 points four times.
On offense we have play makers now, but let's b***h about play calling. Yes, our O-line is abysmal, but that can and will be fixed. It may not happen this year (sorry for those of you who grew up in the age of instant gratification) but the future looks better to me than it has in many years.
Pretty much. People act like you can reach over to some shelf and pull what you need coaching and talent wise off of it.
News flash people: Put down the Madden, put away the fantasy foosball game, there are 32 teams who would all love to have that non-existent magical grocery shelf that you are deluded about.
I do agree.
Am I as disappointed as ever? Yes. I feel we've lost too many games we should've won. I expected us to lose to Indy, but absolutely didn't want that to happen.
The next two games are basically what will decide this season for us. We win, we're back in it -- If we lose, we're likely out barring a massive collapse of Arizona.
However anybody chooses to slice it, this team has been contending against elite teams on the road and is close to winning those games. That is HUGE. It is the hardest step for any team to take. It is very hard to beat elite teams in their house, it's the hardest thing there is in this league, and it's also exactly what you have to do if you are ever going to be somebody in this league. It's the difference between pretender's and contender's. They are almost there, they have to get over that hump at some point, all things remaining equal tomorrow, that point will probably come when the o-line gets fixed, IMHO.
They can win these next two games, I have no doubt. It all hinges on the o-line, IMHO.
