    With all the woulda' coulda' shoulda', what do you put our record at? Considering 4 games:

    Miami W 17-15
    Titans L 22-28
    Giants L 14-10
    Bills L 24-21

    (No Jacksonville, because we earned that game!! SWEEP BABY!)

    W- Miami W 17-15 - should have beaten them by more
    W- Titans L 22-28 - if we didn't have so many turnovers we win by alot
    L- Giants L 14-10 - they are a better team right now and we did well just to stay with them
    W- Bills L 24-21 - take away 2 83 yard tds and a Defensive collapse in the last few seconds and we win in a blowout.

    We should have 5 wins right now. I blaim Carr, just because everyone else does. :lightning:

    This kind of sounds like back when the Titans lost to the Colts by one point and all you Texans fans were like "there are no moral victories" or "you guys still lost"

    You lost, unless the referees screwed you over on the final play or a fumble takes a lucky bounce or something of that nature, you lost the game.

    You can't say you should have won a game because you turned it over a lot. Turnovers are a part of football.

    You can when your team doesn't normaly play like that. If you average x number of fumbles per game and suddenly have a game with 5x fumbles, that's not how your team plays. It's an anomaly.

    As Bill Parcels is fond of saying "You are your record". I just don't believe in woulda, coulda, shoulda.

    I like that ... theres no such thing as a good 3-7 team . Granted you may have flashes but you are what you are .

    I believe we are who we are seeing. I also think this year we get 1 more win. Next year If we get healthy, and get a really good running back, some improved o-line and a couple of veteran db's....look out.

    We probably should have 1 more win than what our record shows.
    Sundays game should have been ours, as should have the game in Nashville.
    But if you can't admit that the road win in Jacksonville was a gift, you aren't
    being honest with yourself IMO.
