We have a losing record

But we are lucky our division is crap this year. We also get our two toughest rivals at home. We are losing mainly because of stupid mistakes and fundamental break downs. Those things can be changed. A stiff kick in the balls and some back to basics coaching could turn this team around.
We have seen growth, we just need to get mentally tough.
A team like ours has the potential to get things clicking late in the season and make a run. Giants did it twice. It's gonna take some balls but it ain't over.

I got a feeling

Re: We have a losing record

Loss vs falcons - D couldn't tackle, colston fumbles in OT
Loss vs browns, turnovers by offense, D leaves someone uncovered 40 yards down field
Loss vs Dallas - completely blown out
Loss vs Detroit - D unravels, Brees throws back breaking pick
Loss vs 9ers - Brees turns ball over 3 times, D unravels in critical moment once again.

Re: We have a losing record

Every time I think I have a good feeling about this team they prove me wrong. It's when I'm so frustrated that I don't know how much more I can take that they pull a rabbit out of their hats and blow out a team like the Packers. But then, that was a night game at home where we seem almost literally invincible. I don't get this team. I'll never understand what the freaking difference is between day and night at home. It's a home game in a dome! It's always going to look and feel the same exact way. What's the freaking problem?

Between the vast difference of being home or away, and the vast difference between playing a home game at day or night, I don't know what blows my mind more. Even though we still usually win during the day, you have to admit we have played some crappy games against bad teams like the Bucs, for instance. What a mental bunch.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: We have a losing record

4 losses with a combined total of 9 points is painful stuff on everybody. I wanted to smash my coffee mug so much today and I am really amazed I didn't Those 4 losses have all been gutting~ like a knife int eh face kind of gutting.

Having said that, had we been able to close in the final minute of each game, we'd be roaring right now. It defn isn't all bad.


There was a sense of inevitability to Kap's 52 lob today, however, and we need to get that head space sorted. We panic too much, the coaches and the players on all sides of the ball.

Thank god we're in the South this year. We can still do this- definitely.

Good on ya, Exx. You rock. Nice to hear some sane talk around here.

If this were a better division -- well, we'd be done. So, we don't get to the playoffs the usual route. Who the F cares?! I sure as hell don't. And, I don't care if this team's marbles are scrambled sometimes either. Win the division is the mantra now. Get on board with that my friends or crawl back under that rock where your perfect football fantasy life exists only in your own mind.

it hurts because we play like crap and still were in them. i much rather lay a turd on the field and get blown out of the place becuase of it than watch and see it is because we can not get our act together on either side of the ball

Re: We have a losing record

Curious why Carolina and Atlanta have hit the skids the same as us. Tampa has solid reasons for their situation and was expected. Were talking an entire division fell from Grace. How odd that not one of the three teams is getting hot down the stretch. No Party Down South!
