Lmao.

Where do you come up with this stuff.

Folks would be cautiously optimistic. Some would be ecstatic. No one would be upset because we "peaked too early". That's an absolutely ridiculous take.
Yeah, you're right. My bad

Im not even sure homefield adv. would even matter right now cuz we just got spanked by the vikings in Reliant. Kubiak and co. better step up their game this Sunday and show us something, because we are looking like an all hype and no substance team.

Unfortunately, my feeling is that this team may have peaked early in the season even though it didn't look like it because of the blowout victories. We're being found out right now and I wonder if Kubiak has what it takes to overcome these deficiencies. The defensive penalties and blown coverages are alarming and Schaub's play has been shaky over the past 2 weeks. Even the pass protection has been average imo. I think one of the best things to happen in this game was the last 3 mins where Arian found gaping holes and the offense looked like it finally found its rhythm. Winning the division was great today and a nice accomplishment, but from what I've seen over the past few weeks I don't think this team is capable of making a deep playoff run unless the team plays better.

As the season wears on, the run game will get better, and the offense will kill ever more. This is why good teams don't peak in October.
Or maybe.... Oh yeah, I remember having the discussions last year and the year before that and the year before that...
