Default We arent out of it yet...

Ok so we have lost 5 games in a row, and we are 2-5. We have the bye week coming up.

We may not win the division but i believe we can still make it as a wild card. And even though we lost today, i saw something i havent seen this whole season. The desire to win, the belief that they could win. I even saw emotion from AJ which is a rare accurance.

So why do people say the season is lost ? We are 2-5, the season is far from over. I'm willing to bet that we finish the season at 10-6 or 9-7. I know some of you the sky is falling people are already planning trips in January, but i'm not cause we will be in the play-offs !!!

I certainly appreciate your enthusiasm. Seriously.

But I was wondering, can I have some of what you're smoking?

Lose the word "far" and I'm with you. It's close to over, but it's not there yet. Cushing's down, Foster is gimpy, the OL is doing their best '02 Texans impersonation, and the defense gives up a 90+ yard TD drive every single game. Not over yet, but teetering on the edge of the cliff, for sure.

Keenum gives a little hope. If he can sling it like he did today, get a little help from the rest of the team, and not try to do too much, there's a chance. But the OL and defense have to step up. And Ed Reed has to retire and give back the money he stole.

I like your optimism but the odds are severely not in our favor. After this loss we have a 1.3% of making the playoffs. Yes it's still a chance but still.

Default Re: We arent out of it yet...

I would love to be a glass half full guy, but let's recap:

We have a third string QB
Our starting SS is out in an already weak secondary
OD is out for an extended period
Our Lb's aren't great and the best one looks to be out for the season
Derrick Newton is our RT
Ed Reed is our FS
( the last 2 lines say it all)
We are 2-5

Sorry man, but we should count ourselves lucky if we go 8-8. This team is banged up and demoralized. The crappiest part of all is our timing to suck, as I don't see any QB's that we can draft to build around. We sucked for 10 years and then when there a batch of good QB's we peak and miss out on them. I can assure you this season is over......

It was fun watching the game today for a change. I don't like our chances but we have not been mathematically eliminated yet. I was ready to put my games on StubHub after watching Schaub crap the bed the last few weeks. At least now, if Schaub doesn't come in, I will look forward to watching the games and see what happens.

I also appreciate the attempt at a stiff upper lip but considering the Cushing injury and what that did to us last year I think we're done. Kubiak and his staff struggle to obtain a plan A let alone B or C and we're already down to about D or so.

Oh do you believe in miracles - Just as only dreamers can

So your man determined, he found a course

Oh do you believe in miracles when the dream has just begun
Anything can work with a miracle, just like Irelands favourite son
And the dream has just begun

Yeah that just happened..........

We are finished. The OL isn't going to "gel." Foster is hurt. Cushing is most likely done for the season.

Oh yeah. Kubiak is our coach.

Dang there is a lot of gloom and doom, i actually feel better about the team today even with the loss. Losing Foster really changed things this game, and then tate getting hurt. We had NO running backs and lost by 1. We will make the play-offs !!!

I do too, actually. I am as happy as you can be about a loss, I think. There's hope, finally. It may not pan out either, but at least Keenum shows the world what could be if we had a QB that wasn't as limited as Schaub. So maybe they'll finally draft a top end QB if the Keenum thing doesn't pan out.

IF the Colts lose tonight, then we're 2 games out of first place of our division with 9 games to go and we play the 1st place team 2x and the 2nd place team 1x. That means we control our own destiny.

We'll have 2 weeks to prepare Case for the Colts and hopefully, he'll recognize those blitzes better and get the ball out quicker.

Unless the Colts just drop 5 games suddenly it's going to be tough.

Their schedule is not really tough outside of this game...we need to pretty much win out to win the division (again, figuring that the Colts will continue their good play) and maybe we can finish 10-6 and sneak in as a WC...

Week by week...but we need to get healthy...

This is actually a good point. Keenum got in before we lost any division games, If he can truly get it done he's just in time.
