Default Seriously.. what if we lose??

I don't think it's going to happen. I think we'll shock them in the first half, and the game will be over early in the third. We'll continue to be aggressive enough on offense to continue running the score up in the third, but Fisher & his Crew will be thinking of this as an educational experience early.

But this board has been a totally different place in the last week. We've been on a rollercoaster since the beggining of the season, Starting off with hope, and faith, and good will towards Kubiak and his coaches. After Philly, Indy, and Washington, we started looking for candidates for DC for next year.

After Miami & Dallas, we were looking for replacement Running backs, and after Jacksonville, there's been nothing but love for Lundy, Gado, & RichardSmith.

I understand the highs & lows are all part of being a fan, but the swings on this board have been so wild... it's crazy.

Knee Jerk??

That's putting it mildly.

But if we lose to Tennessee( I know we won't, but if we did), are we gonna want to see heads roll??

winning is tough in this league...so yeah, we may lose. It's just a game between two bottom dwelling teams right now...I don't think it has long term implications...if that is what you are getting at.

We will be 2-5 and therefore may be deleting or editing many flammable and derogatory posts.

I am not so much worried about if we lose, but would be more worried about how we lose. I do expect us to win.

Shame on you for even bringing up the fact that we may lose. Get that nonsense out of your head NOW. We are on a winning roll. May some day be called a dynasty. But, if we do lose, you'll see the same old "fair weather" fans calling for heads to roll. This is a game that I think we will win. We should be able to run on these chumps which will open up the passing game. We also need to spank Mr. V.Young early and often.

Thanks Mike, this is exactly what I'm talking about.

Vinny, I'm just talking about the MB, not real world stuff. I'm asking are we going to swing to the other side of the spectrum, and want to cut everyone but Dunta , David & AJ??

I think it's silly, and think the "fans" that do it are silly.

It could happen and if it does we prepare for next week. However I'm hoping we get to celebrate a little.

Default Re: Seriously.. what if we lose??

We are in a tough spot here.

If we lose, everyone will start off on how we should have drafted Vince, and that Mario isnt helping us, because we got beat by a inferior team.

But if we win, its like, well they were supposed to win, so this win doesnt mean much.

So we dont gain anything from winning, but lose alot more if we lose.


*Why did a team that we have to play twice a year have to draft VY?!!*

Message boards are always knee-jerk to some extent....the complainers in life are always louder than the patient folks...it's no different here....frankly, it's more exaggerated here because you can hide behind your keyboards. A football message board is like a rolling 'letter to the editor'. The negative generally outweighs the positive on a short term basis but long term we have good fans who are smart and grounded for the most part...it shows through long run methink.

Speaking of "fans" I want Mario to dominate Vince just to see/hear what Mattress Mac has to say. Oh and winning would also be nice too.

This is exactly what I am talking about. If VY and the Titans win, Mac can go nuts talking about how dumb we are, and how we should have taken VY.

But if we win, he wont say anything about it, and that will be that.

So like I was saying, we stand to lose alot more by losing, than we would gain by winning.

Losing is a very real possibility. While we feel pretty good about the last few games, I would think the Titans do as well.

Basically its a battle of two moderately bad teams on the rise. If I were betting money, I'd have to go with Tennessee at home.

On the plus side, I'm starting Travis Henry on my FF team, so at least we know he'll have a lousy day.

Kudos for the optimism, Vinny.

Personally, I think if we lose, it will be because we didn't show up on defense at all. The Titans have shown they can run the ball. We have to stop it. If we can force VY into beating us with his arm, we'll be fine.

Default Re: Seriously.. what if we lose??

I would like to think we pull off a dominating victory this week, but anything can and has happened in games that "we should win" in the past. As far as your comment on how the board has changed in the last week or so, I think many people's reactions are based on the product that they are paying to see being put on the field. Many have said that they expected us to lose a game, but it's the fashion that we lose in that breaks fans down, repeatedly. Blow-outs kill the fan base and team moral. I think that many people were calling for Richard Smith's head at that point because he had the defense playing too cautious, where as now we are more aggressive and that makes a game more exciting to watch. As far as the running back goes, people were fed up with not being able to pick up a single yard consistently throughout a game when it was a must for us to score a TD or pick up a first down. People are happy that we got over 60 yards rushing in a game...not much of a goal, but compared to what we were doing I'm freakin' ecstatic!

Still, I think they were being unrealistic. had we blitzed Peyton, or mcNabb(which we did, not as much as some would like, but we did) we may very well have given up 50 pts, and 600 yds.

We blitzed StL in the preseason, and gave up 300 yds... they thought their QBs looked so good, they showed us all 4 of them, including Ragone. We won that game, but they proved what they needed to prove.

We stayed home, and gave up less yards to Denver(usually on big plays), coming into the season it made sense to cautiously blitz(like we did in Philly) but after Philly, we definitely needed to work on our coverage, same with INdy. Watch the games, time the QB release. It's not that there wasn't any pressure, but that we couldn't cover for 2 seconds.

I agree we should've rushed Brunnells a lot more, I don't understand the thinking going into that game.

& our running game hasn't gotten any better. We looked the same through the first three Qtrs against a team weaker against the run than the teams we played previously. They even had key injuries to the heart of their run defense, and we still got stuffed. But we break off two big runs, and all of a sudden we have a running game??

If we lose the Carr haters will all of a sudden come back to life.

I'm looking for a win.

Saying that we will come out and shock the Titans right away will be too much means you don't really know the nature of VY. He does like to come from behind sometimes.

I don't want to think about losing because winning comes from winning attitudes.
