I also was able to see the Buccaneers, 49ers, Vikings, Cardinals and Browns play....

I saw a lot of good things from those guys as well...They have some good young talent, and they were in a lot of their games, but just missed winning by a few key plays....

Lookie there....I guess there are no bad teams in the NFL...Everyone's up and coming...

It'a official...There is no longer such a thing as a bad team...If you almost do some things well, you're up and coming...

Hey and that Reggie Bush....I often saw plays where, if he had made one more guy miss he'd have broken off a long one. And those Bears...They should have been the champs...I mean...they came within one game....They almost won it so I guess thats just as good....

The Cowboys almost and should have won against the Seahawks...That was a fluke play, and had they have gotten the hold right they would have marched through the play-offs and won the super-bowl....almost...


We were a bad team...The good teams made those plays that we "almost" made...

Bad teams don't make those plays....that's why they're considered bad...

xtruroyaltyx: Why so bitter? Just breath!

TK, if you're telling me that we were better than 2-14 in 05, there is no way we're up and coming....That means that we really haven't gotten any better...
You are what you do...and what we did was have a bad season....
Well that's fine. You think we've played up to our potential.... I don't.

I don't think the teams that beat us are necessarily better than we are.

The Colts, the Eagles, the Patriots..... yeah, those teams are better.

The Giants, when completely healthy.... they're better, but that team we played, and lost to. No. We should definitely have won that game.

& that's fine... you thinking we aren't good as a team....... at all. I just don't think that way.

We've got some holes, and our depth is sorely lacking..... but I think we're about three starters away from having a complete team. LB, LT, & CB.

I think most teams are there, if not worse. The Colts.. San Diego.... New England..... Chicago.. & a few others. But most teams are missing starters.

& that's the point I'm wanting to make.

All these people with this "we've got too many holes to fix in one off season", for a SuperBowl appearance, maybe, but just for a winning season?? I don't think so. for a play-off appearance?? I don't think so.

I'm sure Mangini didn't walk into his locker room telling his guys.... guys, we were 4-12 in '05, so go ahead and make plans to be with your families in January. Forget about having a winning season in '06, lets just go out there and have some fun.

I doubt Payton went into his locker room saying we are what our record says we are... we've got too many holes to fill in one off season... This year is just an evaluation year, to see who'll be on the team in '07.

I hope Kubiak will do a better job in March selling the team on the fact that we can in fact be winners in '07, than I am doing here on this board, with you.

IMHO, the hallmark of an "up and coming team" is beating the teams that are better than you, on paper, when you have the chance. We blew several of those chances. "Being IN the game" doesn't mean much. In '05, we were "IN" more games than '06 and had a much worse record. We have a good nucleus for a good team, but we have to upgrade from all the "tweener" picks CC and DC made. Babin, Peek, Orr, P-BUST,Hodgedon, and even TJ, to a degree.That's not even mentioning FA's we've overspent on. 2 more SOLID drafts and we can compete for the playoffs. Right now, we're bad. 2 good drafts, we're up and comers. I say that with all the holes we have and anticipating injuries. We MIGHT be up and comers next year, but lets see how the offseason plays out before we get too excited. In other words, let's not set ourselves up for disppointment.

But if we beat those teams, we'd have been in contention for a play-off spot......

We'd have been Contenders..... working on becoming Division leaders.

TK....

If a team isn't playing up to their potential what does that mean ?

To me it means that they are a bad team....I think we could have won some of those games as well, but we didn't...

We didn't because we were the worse team on those days...We didn't play 48 minutes as hard as they did.....period....


It doesn't matter whether or not we shoulda/woulda did this/that.

We didn't.

I think we can be improved going into 2007, but it's not a given. We don't even know what kind of moves they'll make this off-season. I have faith in the staff that they'll make some good moves, but as of right now all I have to judge them from is this past season, and this past season was a bad one. ..6-10....is 6-10.....is 6-10.....all day long.....
That's the mark of a bad team. There is no way I can say we're up and coming, and we don't even know what our QB situation will be like.

We were terrible last year, and we were bad this year....If we get atleast 8 wins next year, then I would think we were up and coming...But right now We have just gone from THE very worst to just bad....Where we'll go from here is up to the Front office and Coaching staff...

But we didn't beat those teams...

That's why those teams are considered up and coming.....and we're not....

Because they won, and we didn't.
