It is a loss. We are 0-3. WE DON'T FIND WAYS TO WIN and that is what defines a good team from a mediocre team. We are average at best.

I have never saved money on car insurance I call it out as bullshit. I did however like the offense today. I liked how Schaub led the team down the field twice to answer scores by the Jags late in the game,

yep, average team at best 100% agree.

We used to be a team where guys circled as a win. Now we are just a team that others will remember not to sleep on.

Kevin Walter though and Owen Daniels.

The offense did play good enough to win, but the defense (as usual) turned victory into defeat.

Mario...love watching him play as he seems to be going all out on every down.

Schaub...at least I'll get a break this week for some bitching about his play.

Daniels...great catches at clutch times.

entire team...nobody quit, everyone played hard, by far our best game of the season.

Default Re: The Positives:

Liked the way schaub played. when he has protection, he can get it done...no question.
Also liked the way kubes called the game overall to get schaub & the offense in a rhythm. This is how we need to get the offense going every game here on out.

The Defense....There's Mario & Meco & then nobody else. We're just not making enough plays on defense & pathetic ass Richard Smith isn't helping. We are who we are for now. Now that CC's down, & Demps could miss a couple of weeks, maybe these young safeties will step up & surprise us & be playmakers instead of scheme players. That's what we so desperately need back there. Dunta's return should be a nice infusion as well.

Right on. I was going to say the same thing.

The players usually take the identity of the DC. Well our defense sucks, ergo Smith Sucks.

Give me some Bush!

The run defense is really good. I'm very impressed with it. Pass heavy teams like the Colts are going to kill us though. If we can't cover the Hags, we're going to struggle against just about every passing offense.

Run defense?

What run defense?

Swiss cheese.

I'd run on the Texans every down.
