    This stuff bothers me. I don't take it as bravado, or a confidence build, etc. I wish guys would just take the reality..like Reed...and work to overcome the gap. Give credit, move on and work. Am I wrong here or do people like the attitude?

    yeah, it kinda bothers me too. If you were the better team you'd be playing this weekend.

    didn't they just do a study where they determined that young people today are a bit delusional and narcissistic...you know, living in a dream world?

    Show me how you're better J-Jo. Please, show me. By my calculations the combined score was 83-42. In two games you scored as much as they did in 1 game. Stupid **** like this pisses me off. You got corn holed by a team twice, so just giive em their props or drop a "no comment" and STFU

    yeah, you play the games to show who is better. Unless you are in College and then they use the United Nations system of figuring stuff out by voting.

    Can you imagine the **** Tom Brady would get if he said that had we won? We'd be coming down on him calling him a sore loser.

    I don't have a problem with my players thinking we have the right guys to win it all if that's their truth.

    Different Attitudes work for different types of people so I won't tell him how he should feel.

    But he is wrong though.

    JoJo should be thinking about how he can get properly fit and come back stronger next season not about 4 or 5 plays, because if by 4 or 5 plays 2 of them are TDs, 2 XPs and an FG then you are losing by 17 points. Texans lost by more than 17 points on average.

    I know you can't blame the guy for getting injured, but at the same time he can't be openning his mouth because he became gradually more and more inneffectual through his injuries from around week 2 or 3 onwards and to my mind never fully recovered all season.

    So we've got Reed throwing his coach under the bus for not preparing him and we've got JoJo thinking the tonking they took twice over doesn't represent a gap.

    The last few years I've been used to going into the offseason having real reason for hope of improvement. I really struggle to imagine, beyond some miracle draft 06 style, the overall talent level of this team improving over time, we're going to be forced to replace our mid-level talent and contributing backups with rookies year after year from here on out and I really struggle to imagine that anything other than improvement in coaching is going to move the chains on this teams potential going forward.

    Sounds like the post 2010 (6-10) arguments.

    We're just a couple plays from 10-6.

    We were also a couple if plays from 2-14.

    It took upgrading a coach and some players. Sounds like a food recipe to take the next step.

    What he said here doesn't bother me. I want my team to be confident and believe they can beat anyone.

    But maybe he should have said, "We are the better team, but they played better than us today."

    Or "they were the better team the 2 times we played them this year but I believe we can beat them in the future." That gives them respect and acknowledges you have confidence in the guys you have.

    Completely agree. Our team team had some deficiencies, but is a Top 5 in the league. Tom Brady beated us. Not the Patriots.
