Default Has this month really been a disappointment?

I couldn't find any previous post but I remember us fearing this month as the hardest month on our schedule considering the teams we played. I couldn't remember if many of us around here thought a 1-3 record would be expected out of this month.

I know I tought 2-2 would be reachable, 3-1 wonderful, but 1-3 would be acceptable.

I really believe if there is any disappointment, it is the fact we didn't show up for 2 1/2 of the last 3 games.

To me it's always a disappointment when you lose.

Thats the hardest part. They screwed around and showed us what they are capable of and now they have to live up to that everytime they hit the field. For the life of me I cant understand how they can say they didnt come out with as much fire as the other team. This is the NFL. If you have any problems with fire during a game I question why you are here. Heck, Im sitting on my couch and I dont have probelms with getting fired up and I do that for free!!

But wasn't there any expectation that we would lose in November?

Wouldn't that depend on if you thought they were a playoff team or not? I did not so I'm not really expecting them to beat Indy who I consider the team to beat in the South.

I'm disappointed in the fact that they didn't play well and lost but truly I thought it would be hard to beat Denver in Denver and Indy in Indy...

I think you guys have the right mix. High hopes but reasonable expectations. Very often with a young or rebuilding team the fans have to be a little patient. If the team doesn't make progress then the fans can show disappointment. The Texans are making progress. A good nucleus and what appears to be a pretty fair coach. I remember 3 years ago at a Cowboys message board they had lost replaced a whole bunch of their Super Bowl players and the fans acted as if you can replace an Aikman , Johnston, Irvin and Smith in 1 or 2 seasons. They were SUPER critical of the new players especially Carter whom they expected to be as good as Farve or McNair his 1st season! When I suggested that they give their young players a chance they told me that being a fan of losers like the Eagles, my patience would get me nothing but a long white beard. Maybe so. But these guys actually believe that they are ENTITLED to a Super Bowl every year. There were lots of posts to me in that vein. How the 'Boys needed to live up to the "America's team" **** and how many fans they have in Europe and "Everyone loves the Cowboys". One of them actually told me "Any season that does not result in a Superbowl win for the Cowboys is a failure!" Man you need more than a pick-up truck to carry THAT much baggage. I say a .500 season this year is progress and a springboard to the play-offs next year. I also think when Carr matures he's going to be 2nd only to Manning as an offensive threat.

you guys played great against green bay. The old veteran qb just got the best of you as he has done virtually everyone. One day DAvid Carr will be doing the same to other teams. Just have patience your day in the sun will come.

Congrats to your team. I really don't feel so bad about that 1st loss anymore knowing SD played us the way they actually play right now. Let's just hope yall don't have a colapse like yall did two years ago.

The Chargers are finally a fun team to watch after being horrid these past few years. I like the offensive game they play. They seem to always be attacking and they don't sit on leads. And I'm a big LT fan.
