These are the kinds of games that make football the greatest sport in the world, and what makes us fans. We didn't win--that sucks, and it hurts, its a tough, tough loss that will have implications over the rest of our season--one way or the other--but what is wrong with feeling better about this loss than about the Seattle loss?
We were vastly improved over last week. We corrected many of the errors from last week. We got incredible performances from our defense, from our quarterback, from our o-line, and from our runningback. We lost the game, we were not beat. That hurts, no doubt. But I think its fair to say that this team and its fans can hold their heads high after this performance, as opposed to the gutless, disorganized shambles of last week.
And there's nothing wrong with that.
Hessian, you're right there were many positives, but we've all seen the same movie before. A great example is the Viking game last season, we played a great game offensively and defensively, we had them beat, we find a way to lose the game at the end and then the next week we get blown out against the Falcons. Our problem is inconsistency and the problem starts with the Yorks (for hiring such an inexperienced coach who inherited a very young team) and ends with the QB (1 td and 4 turnovers in two games shouldn't be anything to be positive about).
That same QB has 500 yards in 2 games against some pretty good defenses, and half the INTS weren't really his fault. I mean, we can take shots at Smith all we want, but in the end, it wasn't his fault we lost. Look at Baas, Adams, Walker, etc.
