Default What have you done for me lately?

Has anyone noticed how enormous the waves of support and cticism are on this board? Let me be the first to say I'm as guilty as the next guy, but you'd think every Sunday's performance was 5 years worth of data the way we judge our players/coach/etc.

After Jax, everyone was happy. For the first time in a long while I read a TON of Carr support threads, and a ton of stuff about how happy everyone was he was finally leading the team. I don't want to mentino names, but there were 3 people who have doubted Carr for the past few months that finally came around.

1/2 of a bad game and its out the window. Its amazing how quickly people have turned on Carr, AJ, etc.

The consistancy of DC and the team is going to show on this board as well. It's the nature of the beast.:brickwall

My thoughts exactly.

We live in a world where people remember only what happened over the past 24 hours. Once the 24 hours has passed, it's back to square one.

It's like watching a rally in tennis around here:

Carr did great!

Carr $#%@& sucks.

Carr did great!

Carr $#%@& sucks.

Carr did great!

Carr $#%@& sucks.

Back and forth, back and forth.

Amazing.

Just pick a side and stay there, that's what I say.

It's the nature of a message board. A lot of quick thoughts get posted. I LOVED that we beat the Jags 'cause I can't stand them or their coach or their QB. And apparantly of lot of people in Jacksonville feel the same way because up until this season they were not selling very well. (I think they took out some seats)

But I'm glad they beat Philly 'cause I hate them more. Now if WE can just beat both teams I'll be with the football gods in heaven. :bananasplit:

I'm not sure if it's people jumping off the bandwagon, or just changing seats while it's moving.

naw...I disagree....

When things go well people have a tendancy not to complain...

When they go bad, you will hear about it...I don't think there's anything knee jerkish about it...

Just us being on the board means that we care a lot about this team. The bandwagon fan changed the channel at least 3 yrs ago.

I said it in another thread and I'll repeat. We should be mad and the team should be mad. Everyone wants to see wins.

This is why most NFL team websites don't even have message boards.

Just curious, did Kubiak turn on Carr too since he benched him?, or did he react to a horrible performance by Carr, like many of us did ?

I noticed this as well in the Media... the guys on 610am were raving about Carr after jacksonville but prior to that they spent 3-4 weeks saying he was a looser. Then after the Titans game they came out saying he should be replaced, and that he has no talent. what a difference a week makes.

According to Kubiak, Carr was told if he lost the ball again he would be pulled.This should be good for Carr to understand what is going to happen if falls on his face. He will be hit again, that is part of the game, but he will now understand that getting hit is no excuse to drop the ball, literally and figurtively. I am a Homer and love our QB, but I love winning more. He will be judged by accomplishments not effort just like the rest of us.
BUT, we still need a GOOD O line to even come close to being a good team.
