Default So far, the year is a disappointment

In your heart of hearts you know that. We beat the Chiefs, but that was really a bit of a fluke - be honest. The team really competed in the 4th quarter and pulled the game out. But we got some breaks (to say the least),
so we could hang in there for the second half. At the very least, we should
have split with SD & Detroit. That's the big rub because the disappointmet is, I don't think were quite as good this year as I thought we would be - we aren't progressing at the rate some said we were. No problem - just gonna take a little longer for this team to get where we all want it to be. Gonna take
another draft (or 2) to get there.

That's just the story of the NFL, you win some you should lose, and you lose some you should win. Besides it's not how you start, it's how you finish. 13 more to go.

It hasn't been a disappointment. Just because a team loses to a team they should beat doesn't mean the season is going down the drain. Besides...like someone said earlier- 13 more games to go...including the Raiders.

I can't call this season a disappointment at the 3 game mark. It's a slower than expected start, nothing more. If the team finishes strong and they take out the Titans at least once then that''s a good season. It's not a great season but it'll do for our 3rd year. I expect to see a lot of the youngsters really grow up this year and start to display some of the potential we've been talking about. If Capers has them winning by the end of the year (even if they're out of it by that time) then that's going to be the basis for where we start in 2005.

We are 3 games into the season. A little early to say the season is a disappointment. Take away half of our turnovers and we could be 3-0 right now and people would be posting how awesome we are.

The game this weekend will not be a pushover. The Raiders are improved and I may be the only person besides Al Davis that thinks this but I like the hiring of Norv Turner. I think he'll take them back to the playoffs, if not this year, the next.

The Texans need to play good, error-free ball to win. I'm expecting a real good game.

Yes and No.

Disappointing that we arent on our way to a 16 win season.. yah ok.. but honestly im not disappointed yet.

If you would have asked me on a sunday after we lost.. yah i was disappointed as hell.. but thats usually how it goes.. now that I have had time to simmer down and look at things, really we arent in a bad position.

We hit our stride around mid season.. that is when we start to play like we are really capable of. Every team is like that. In the past.. we have played bad at first.. and played pretty good in the mid to late season, losing alot of close games.

This year.. what will make or break the season for me is whether or not we pull those close games out this year. Already we have started this season stronger than any past season.. Our wins may not show it.. but those first two weeks we were really playing well. What I will be looking for is consistency and even better statistics.. id like to see us be ahead in the first quarter and stay well ahead all the way through the game. Id really like to see us have our first blowout. All in all.. id just be happy if we come away with a better record than last year, and we win those close games.

really though.. even if we end 4-12 or 5-11 again.. it may be hard to watch, but we would end up with a good draft pick and that is actually pretty important for us right now.. its obvious that we are not yet a top tier team.. we are still missing some peices.. and we need some good drafts to get there.
