I am not as disappointed now

Because look at the giants, seahawks, chargers, and chiefs. Seattle especially putting up 12 points at home against Miami. Giants looked sloppy against Dallas. Chargers lost Allen now again, and KC needed that injury to be able to even come back and win. These teams are all coming up, so I believe we have chances to beat these teams who are worse offensively than Oakland.

We were up 14 points on them at one point. Defense played well for a half. We were not able to get a sack or any turnovers but had we played a offense below their level we get those. None of the teams coming up are the offense we just played. We can win the next three or at least go into the bye 2-2.

Someone's got to lose. We had our chances. Let's not forget, we owned the Raiders for the most part. That won't show up on the W/L column, but I thought we did well for being so inexperienced. We'll only get better. And we can still win the division, that wasn't even an NFC team.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

Sorry, but if you are waiting to play a different offense so our defense can play better that's laughable.

Oak offense is okay, not great, and our defense looked just like it did last year, no pressure, no sacks, no turnovers, bad penalties at the wrong times, busted coverages and gave up a big lead.

Your not disappointed because a few other teams lost? I'll say I don't give a **** about other teams, we just lost a game in the same fashion we have for the last two years and to top it off it was at home.

We played better D than last year, come on. That's a good team. Cam Jordan's a pro bowler and he didn't SNIFF Carr, so he sucks? If we were going to have a hiccup, it may as well been against a non-conference opponent early. I don't think we should tear down the dome yet

I love cam, best player on our D but you do realize that he was going against the 2nd and 3rd stringer? Yet he still wasn't effective.

Again, we are the worst D in the league, stats don't lie. I can't try to be positive about this team when it's the same **** year after year...

Bill Johnson and Vitt ... coaching hasn't been stellar on that side of the ball either.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

Giving up 22 4th quarter points is disappointing no matter how you look at it.
These guys have some pride. I think this will not sit well, at least I hope not.
If they play the last quarter like the 1st 3 quarters we win by 2 touchdowns.
Yea I know, "If IF was a sciff..."
That was not their intent and I think they will learn from it.
The front 7 has to step it up. When that happens everything changes.
If it never happens, we will just have to keep out scoring teams with 30's and 40's
and hope for the best.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

So Brees goes for 424 passing yards and four touchdowns and we lose.
Defense gives up points like an open door, does it look familiar.
Kinda makes you wonder about those who wanted to let Drew walk.
Shades of Archie Manning from days gone by.

Re: I am not as disappointed now

As disappointed as I am and especially was last night rember these points;

2011 giants got killed by us and then won the superbowl
Patriots couple seasons back got slaughtered by the chiefs and then made it to the superbowl that same season

We had rookies with no NFL starting experience.
Disappointing but not the end of the world.

If Payton understood clock management, we walk away with a W yesterday.
