What’s your frame of mind this week based on what’s happened the last two weeks?

“Optimistic that we’re going to get this thing back on track very quickly. Obviously (we’re) disappointed by the 0-2 start, but there’s nothing we can do about it now except learn from our mistakes and continue to focus on the process and preparation. We know we have the right people in the building, coaches and players and now it’s’ just a matter of pulling it all together and finding our rhythm so to speak. I think that we actually improved in a lot of ways from week one to week two. Now unfortunately that doesn’t result in a win, but we can go back and look at the tape. (There are) plenty of things. I said it right after the game where there’s probably at least six or seven plays offensively that you go back and say if we just made two of those, we win that game. I know defensively from talking to those guys, they feel the same way on that end. So, its’ not drastic. It’s not (that) each side has to make a ton more plays. It’s just a few things here and there. We just have to get a little bit better, but we did take a big step forward from week one to week two.”

Given that you’re 0-2, how much does that weigh on everybody in the locker room and on the mindset of everybody in the locker room? Is it too early in the season? How do you do it?

“We view it the only way we can view it and that is that it’s’ not the start that we wanted. All we can worry is about what’s ahead of us. The most important thing is this week. As much as we’d want to go out and try to win 14 games in one week, we can’t. We can only win one game and obviously it’s a long season and a lot can happen through the course of the season. A lot does happen through the course of the season. You have your ups and downs and times. You know you’re going to face adversity at some point. We faced it a little bit sooner than maybe most, but in the end, I feel like this is going to make us better. It’s going to make us a better team. It’s going to bring us together, but we do need a win and we want it to be this week.”

I saw improvement from week 1 to week 2 as well, mostly on the offense. But its the defense that needs the improvement the most. Hopefully it is as people have said, that Spags defense takes a while to jell.

Wonder if missing time in offseason workouts made a difference? Hmmmm

Did it make a difference when he missed them last year, because of the lockout, and we wound up going 13-3, won the division, and a Wild Card game, and nearly won the divisional round? I mean, it obviously messed Drew's game up so much that he only passed for 5,476 yards and set the record for highest completion percentage, most 300+ yard passing games in a season, and most prolific total offense ever. And a bunch more records. How dare he!

We all know 2011 was a total bust because Drew did not have those workouts.

Everybody else was in the same situation last year (locked out), so everybody was essentially on the same plane. Actually, Drew helped to lead informal offseason workouts with the team when other teams were sitting on their asses, thus perhaps putting he and his teammates ahead of where other offenses were when the season started.

This year he missed time when everybody else was getting work in.

I don't see how that's hard to understand. Success is directly correlated to the amount of work you put in, and when you miss prep time, it's going to affect the final product. Does that mean Drew isn't a complete stud? That he won't turn it around? Not at all, it's an attempt to explain why he's not as sharp as he was last year.

But if you guys want to blindly accept mediocrity, be my guest. Drew is known as a relentless worker, but when you miss time (voluntarily or involuntarily), you're not going to be as sharp. Some of you homers get your panties in a wad if anything negative is said, I'm just trying to explain potential reasons why he's got the 28th best QB rating thus far.

I'm with Black, show me.

If you can get it back on track "very quickly," how 'bout this Sunday against the Chiefs? That'll be quick enough for me.
