lol dont be a drama queen.
A 1 point loss to an elite D and a last second FG loss on the road against an elite team is hardly a "downward spiral". We won this game, and the refs took it away.
All that said, we have a young, developing QB. Even having a winning record is impressive.
Nothing dramatic about that. It is the cold hard truth. We have gone as far as we could go with this group of personnel. We simply just aren't good enough !!
You are right, 1 point loss to the Panthers or 3 points loss to the Saints is not a lot and perhaps if not for the bad calls by the refs we might have even won this game, but 29-3 to the Seahawks and 27-7 to the Colts IS
Yes, we do have a young and developing QB and boy does he need to develop. But, "young and developing" shouldn't be used an an excuse. Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson are both young and developing too. Let's just call it the way it is, Kap is just not as good (at least at this juncture).
I understand "downward spiral" might be too strong a term for your tatse, but like most things in this world, is all relative. In other words, it is more than just whether we are tanking cos there are other teams who have upped their game big time which makes the disparity even more pronounced.
