A Good Team Would Have Beaten Us Today.

Seriously. I know our secondary was banged up but we got it handed to us all day. 2nd to last play of the game, Bulger had a man wide open cause Gay broke inside. Bulger chose to throw to Avery and luckily it was a bad pass that hit Jenkins. Had he hit the other receiver, TD easy.

Also SP worst game? I think so. Porter looks like he could be done too. Not good at all.

Having said that, 9-0 WHO-DAT!

Porter out scares the crap out of me. We have 2 stud DBs (at this point in their careers) - Porter and Greer.

This team can forget about beating NE or Atl with an effort like today's...

I don't know what Drew's problem is but he's killing us with those INT's. He's been in a funk now for a month. If he doesn't get that corrected it's gonna bite us. A very dissapointing game to say the least. These players need to stop reading their press clippings.

Well we can not beat Atlanta or NE missing 5 starters- true. The simple fact is the only thing I care about today is TP. If he is done for the year, it hurts, and it hurts bad

Odds are Porter IS done for the year.

Head down, looked like he was crying on the cart. BAD signs. Probably knows something was torn...

When Drew feels the pressure he is not as effective as he usually is. We are missing our starting fullback and our LT is out for the season. Teams look like they have figured out how to get around Bushrod and the assistance given to him. It shows that this defense is a work in progress, our backups on defense aren't stepping up fully to the task. This was another sloppy game that we could easily have lost.

It is not the same D bro. You are talking about 5 names that were not there previously. Yeah 5 new guys does make a defense a work in progress

Good teams overcome injuries. We need to get as many guys back as we can and step up and make plays.

Drew's funk needs to end, and soon. Colston also needs to get back to his old self.

Great teams do not overcome 5 injuries to key players on one side of the ball. I don't care what team it is. That is a cliché, and it is not true. Look at who makes the SB, and it is generally teams that stay healthy.

You overcome a few injuries, and we have, but not 5 on one side of the ball, nope! We overcame that because of the team we played.

Agreed we need as many players back, absolutely. The one that hurts the most is TP

Scares the **** out of me
