If we play like we did against Tampa we will not win.

Yea the team yesterday couldn’t beat the Browns. We lost to a team with 4 wins. Doesn’t matter how close the games were when they played Carolina and Atlanta, they were still a 4 win team. Good teams beat teams with records like that. We haven’t won a single game against any of the teams in the playoffs except the Panties. You have to beat playoff teams to get anywhere once you get to the playoffs.

Just like New England beat Miami in the second meeting?

ooops...

Nonsense. We played poorly. Tampa made some plays. It happens, and if you think Tampa has 4 win talent on that team I'm sorry to say, you're wrong.

The talk before the game was whether or not we could survive the injuries. We've been hit hard. It is what it is, but man, you're going WAY over the top. We all wanted to win, but yours isn't exactly the voice of reason right now.

Take a pill.

Hopefully that was the wake up call.

D allowed too many 3rd down conversions

Offense stalled multiple times, couldn't convert third downs and got 10 points from 3 turnovers.

We're 4-4 versus the current playoff field.

Atl 1-1
Car 2-0
NE 0-1
Bills 1-0
Vikes 0-1
Rams 0-1

Home (3 - 1) lost to NE badly
Away (1 - 3) lost to Falcons (but not really), Min, LAR
