    We start slow.

    That hasn't changed. We've got to hope that we get this figured out, and turned around before mid-season, like we did last year, and the year before.

    We play Tennessee next week. @ Tennessee. We've never won there. It's early, but it's as close to a "must win" as we've ever had.

    Honestly though, I was impressed with the defense. If only we could have kept our offense on the field and given them some decent time to rest....

    2004 we swept them.

    but other than that, You pretty much nailed it on the head. The first 4 games each season since Kubiak was brought in we've gone 3-10 (and two were against horrible teams). However, we've finished much better (8-4) in the last 4 games. That's just the way we've played historically, which is always depressing.

    I honestly want to be positive and I am trying

    but I can't think of anything off of the top of my head that showed me any positives from this game.

    nothing sticks out to me ... special teams, offense or defense

    well the defense early in the game was about it

    sad thing is I was thinking the same thing. I was kinda pissed I wasn't able to draft any but now I'm thinking that may not be bad thing. I just wish had Drew Brees.

    I'm wondering about your comment and I'm not trying to be sarcastic but what about the defense impressed you?

    The Jets had a rookie QB playing and he looked like a 5 year All-Pro. They gashed the Texans for several very long gains. I'm not sure what the Jets percentage was on 3rd down but it seemed to me like they made an awful lot of them. They had almost 500 total yards.

    I agree the offense was horrific but to me it was the lesser evil. I thought the defense was really bad.

    But seriously what impressed you?

    Thanks for those stats.

    I thought he played very well for a rookie..first start and all that. He didn't appear to get rattled and the OC for the Jets had a very good game plan for Sanchez to execute.

    #1.... I blame the bad offense for the declining defense. We were kicking but on defense in the first half.Lot's of hits in the backfield (including Ferguson's muffed tackle in the backfield). & that run for 6 yards, was their biggest run play of the first half, not counting the reverse.

    We got after the QB.... he beat us, but we got after him.

    Ifs, coulda's & woulda's.... I think the defense would have looked better, if we could have put some points on the board, and kept the game close.

    I'm positive it's just one loss. It sucks but no where near as bad as that ass whipping in last years opener. We are tied for second in the division. One week at a time.

    Could it also be that Sanchez is this years Ryan/Flacco? Good coaching and good players around him.

    It could be, but if this team is ever going to be any good it has to start beating the good teams and the teams with this years Ryan/Flacco and all the good coaching and good players around him.
