9-7

No... that is not what we are going to go this year. its not going to be the score in this years Super Bowl...


It is the regular season record of last years Super Bowl Champions.

We did not look unskilled, terrible, or like one of the worst teams in the league. We looked flat and out of synch on offense. Defense ALWAYS (with the exception of last year) takes a game or two to get up to speed. There is no tape on this QB in the NFL... Nada... We basically had to go in with a vanilla game plan and adjust. Shanahan knew that.... Which is why he ran a game plan that set the pace at as soon as we could adjust it changed... That first 6 plays were all the same just changed sides. the next 6 were all the same but flip flopped sides.


RELAX... Settle down.... Don't loose your frikken mind thinking we cant do this with out Sean Payton... Don't blame the loss on lack of Payton... Need I remind you we lost to Tampa bay AND Seattle WITH Sean Payton...


This is not as bad as it looks. We will be fine... I would rather we peak at the end of the season anyway...

So when you feel your self panicking (I do it too)... Think 9-7 The Giants took the whole frikken pie going 9-7 in the regular season...

We ARE a lot better team that we saw on the field today. We has some beautiful tackles today and I have not seen that in years..

Move away from the light

Re: 9-7

im not losing my mind after one game, its only week one. but, how many times have we started the season badly in the 5 years, and ended the season well? none.

theres a lot of things we need corrected.

defensively, our linebackers looked like crap. granted, they're coming back from injuries. too many missed tackles by the defense as a whole. secondary wasnt too bad, but, certainly far from great. the defensive line got pressure, but, couldnt bring down the qb until the 4th. granted, not all qb's are that hard to bring down!

offensively, the offense was, for the most part, offensive. recievers had trouble getting open and had troubles bringing in the ball. we failed to utilize sproles like we did last year. what happened to utilizing him MORE this year?

and the biggest gaping hole of a problem i saw was the gaping holes we were leaving for the redskins linebackers and dt's to come after drew. the o-line was by far the worst facet of the game today.

rebound saints. get your stuff together. get ready for carolina. and rebound. cause if we dont, its gonna look a lot like it did today next week against cam.

Despite that I want to pull my hair out after setting it on fire, cussing up a storm, breaking somehting and just going crazy in general, there are 15 games remaining.

Re: 9-7

Drew had no time what so ever

Our o line got man handled

We made rg3 look like joe Montana in his first game in the NFL

we lost devery Henderson and are running short on WR's now

Is this defense going to be better? I have no idea....but I don't like how we started

Yeah the offense let us down massively today, but the defense still let a rookie QB put 40 points on us

Re: 9-7

RG III was a complete unknown.... Honestly it could have gone either way.. I stated this before... He could come out feeling the weight of the NFL or pure ignorant and oblivious ... He was oblivious... It just has not set in jet. Shanahan made a game plan to exploit that...


Regardless... I am glad we do not have to see them again.

Re: 9-7

I am simply frustrated that year after year we continue to field a crappy defense. Today's defensive performance was an abysmal one by any measure. No, it's not the end of the world, but that doesn't mask the fact that we suck on defense year after year. We have good players. I just don't understand.

We just let a rookie throw for 300+ yards and hang a 40 burger on us. If now isn't the time for the alarm it's sure as hell time to wind the clock. That was the worst performance I've seen in a very long time.

No excuses. No sugar-coating. No "we'll get 'em next week". Today was bad. It was really REALLY bad.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
