If you are not one of these then you would not understand. All I am saying is we have 13 to go lets concentrate on them one game at a time. As our fearless leader Halo is quoted as saying repeating as Super Bowl champions is a pipe dream!
I just flew back from Houston...and boy are my arms tired...ba da bing!

But seriously folks, I haven't read all the posts. Still, allow me to address some things:

Did I expect us to go undefeated? Damn right. I expect us to win every game, or at least to get beaten rather than to beat ourselves.

Is Hartley faultless? No, he is not, but there is no excuse for missing that little chip shot.

Will we commit turnovers? Yes, but that play where Brees flipped the ball is the worst play I have ever seen him make. He is pitching to a rookie tight end there and not Jeremy. He HAS to know better than to make that kind of a mistake on that end of the field, and I'm sure he's kicked himself solidly over it. Out of us all, you can bet he's not singing zippidy doo dah blah blah blah. I'm sure he's as pissed as I am. If only everyone was...

A week before I was hollering about sloppy play and some people said, "well, they'll get it together". Well they haven't. We more or less played like crap for the 3rd straight week. I'm not going to stick my head in the sand and say everything is going to be ok, we just need to clean up some things...our blah blah blah will get blah blah blah in time blah blah blah.

Repeating is not a pipe dream. It has been done before, and we have the talent to do it, if and when we ever stop playing like poo, and I'm prepared to make statements that go to our weak-ass fundamentals until they improve, and they better improve soon or we'll be looking up at Atlanta.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

Yeah, I'm not nearly as concerned about being 2-1 as I am about not playing up to our potential.

If we brought our A-game every week we'd be an easy 3-0 right now. I've yet to see us even come close to our A-game this year, but we're 2-1.

It could, and probably should be a lot worse.

We're just getting our bad 3 games over at the first of the season instead of at the end.

The winning begins again on Sunday!
