Somehow I don't think we are done

Yet.
I know I'm always negative but I have a feeling. We knew the first quarter of the season was gonna be tough. We knew our offensive line would have problems given injury, patchwork players, and relative youth. Our offense didn't play as a whole all offseason. I expected them to be rusty (although I hoped our defense would be better to compensate). Play calling aside what is killing us is penalties along the line and an aweful red zone offense.
Those things CAN be fixed. We blew some opportunities today.

Defensively we still suck, but we have had opportunities to get takeaways. They just weren't successful. Lattimore will get better, hopefully Vacarri will get benched and someone else will step up. We did just play the team that won it all last year. When it comes to the division all stats, records, and pass transgressions go out the window.
Just win the division

Either that or we really do suck and wind up losing a bunch of games. Could go either way. Who knows.

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

The London game will be a toss-up because both teams will be out of sorts. The telling game to me is the Lions game after the bye. If we haven't fixed much after the bye and lose to a Lions team we had 2 weeks to prepare for and are relatively familiar with because we seem to play them every year, it will be the beginning of the end.

Re: Somehow I don't think we are done

Thought Lattimore played very well today; Brady tried to test him and it took a questionable pick play to score on his side of the field...

All of that offensive line shifting positions really showed today as they're looking confused and frustrated with their latest roles...

AP sure seemed to show he still had it, but we weren't running the ball early enough for it to be effective...

Thought Ingram should have gotten more touches than he received; he's in his prime and finally adapted his game...

Marcus Williams is another guy who's growing with confidence and by mid-season should be special, though the season's in doubt...

WTH? WTF? What is going on with rookie DE Trey Hendrickson?!? This kid can't get out of his way - back, hamstring, knee, illness - c'mon, kid...

And lastly why are Ken Crawley and Al Muhammad on the inactive lists? We need even more energy on that defense...

Most Disappointing Player through two games - Sheldon Rankins - can't even provide complementary game to Cam Jordan...

Dreamin' mate. We win 6 possibly 7 games this year, continuing the streak.
