RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Wow! We got a wake up call !!!!!!

for the last time, let's get it straight... i'm not "jumping ship".... i think this is the 3rd time at least that i've said it... i'm concerned... overly concerned about a second half crumble by a young, inexperienced football team.... it that so out of left field? no... i'm not predicting anything.... i'm saying that we need to get our asses in gear and win the games we're supposed to, like the one today, b/c at the end of the year, after we lose the ones were supposed to, if you start adding the losses of the games that were supposed to be wins, then we aren't going to make the playoffs.... get it? i'm not saying anything about "doom and gloom" etc.... we just need to get our heads back in the game, b/c it was pretty obvious (and the turnover margin indicates this, as you have so lovely pointed out) they weren't today.... i know if you turn the ball over you don't win.... thanks sherlock for uncovering that mystery.... but the fact is that we should not have had 5 turnovers... nor should we have had 4 false starts that killed some of our drives, but we did.... good football teams (colts, bears, etc.) beat the teams they are favored to beat.... they don't let those games slip and hope that other teams will come along and help out... they take care of their own business... we've done a decent job of that so far, but with the lead in the division standings i think the team, coaches, front office, and even the fans have become complacent and just expect to see the playoffs b/c we started so good.... we can't allow this to happen.... now do you get where i'm coming from? christsakes..... and what the hell was "anyone in the know"... could you sound anymore pretentious?

Being upset with a loss like today's is justified. As much justification as fearing the worst. We know the history of this franchise, throughout the years, and the many, MANY coaching changes, the results have been the same. You get slapped in the face enough times, and eventually when the hand goes up again, you'll flinch.

Now, despite the high tensions, keep the bite out of your posts.

Understood. Everyone is upset and things have gotten a bit out of hand on here, partially because of me. I guess I just figured people would be a bit more objective at looking at the game. Everyone is entitled to their own prognosticating though.

I think the unrealistic outlooks for this team were just that....unrealistic. A realistic hope was a 10-6 season with a possible playoff berth, not 13-3 with a Superbowl win. All going 5-1 did was give the uneducated and blind fan more hope than they needed and allowed the casual fan to jump on board of a "winner". This team is not winning a Superbowl. To think so is plain foolish. Believing a team can overperform and being a realist...you cant have it both ways. If someone seriously thinks this team is good enough, THIS SEASON, to make a Superbowl run well all the power in the world to you.

It's like the uncle that's always getting arrested. You go bail him out, chew his ass out on the ride home, don't speak to him for weeks, then buy him a beer next time you see him.

Trust me, as frustrated as some people are, they will be back, rooting for their team next Sunday, without question.
