    ok...i know the past two weeks have been major dissapointments but let's look at this game right...both teams are 0-2...both teams have problems rushing the passer...and recently both teams are having problems offensively...us with turnovers them with establishing a running game...i think we can win this mother and here's why:

    1. they can't tackle so this is the perfect team for DD to get his confidence back
    2. since we are 0-2 the chances of us being overlooked is good
    3. with everything that's happened this season why not
    4. we've been better moving the ball down the field

    the only things i see we need to get better at before we play the chiefs is:

    1. PASS RUSH...i thought we fixed this during the offseason
    2. turnovers...i'm not talking about DD...i'm talking about carr...to many picks man
    3. 3rd and long we need to stop them

    If you're talking about turnovers, then you need to talk about DD. One of Carr's picks didn't even matter because it came in the last seconds of the first half(Chargers game). That pick didn't affect the game one bit. DD's four fumbles, however, have affected the 2 games quite a bit. Especially his fumble on San Diego's 15 yard line late in the 4th quarter.

    What are you talking about? It kept us from gaining just a few more yards to get into field goal range. What about yesterday? The 2 point conversion missed pass by Gaffney was thrown behind him. I lost count of how many shoe lace passes Carr made to his Wide Receivers in the flats. The guy has an accuracy problem. He makes about 2-3 good passes and then misses his mark on the next one. He needs to get way better than that to carry this team.

    Carr did make some bad passes, but the original poster said he was more worried about Carr's 3 INT's than DD's four turnovers. I'm more worried about the four fumbles. Tell me MLB, what was more costly, Carr's pick at halftime or DD fumbling on the 15 late in the 4th?

    Who knows, I broke my crystal ball when I fell on it after the Lions kick-off return TD yesterday. :)

    The 2 point conversion pass hit both of Gaffneys hands.

    The answer to the number of low throws on the quick out is 2 (And I didn't even need to take off my shoes).

    Carr makes 2 or 3 good passes them misses the mark? So he should be between 67% - 75% completions? You're right, he's at 71.2%! That would be an NFL record if he finished at that rate, but you're right - it wouldn't and hasn't been good enough to carry this team.

    Did anyone watch Vinny Testaverde and Jeff Garcia trying to out do each other in the INT department yesterday?

    our offense, minus the fumbles, has been decent but our defense is attrocious. KC will beat us in a shootout. we will get no pass rush against their offensive line.

    In that case Domanick better be ready to hold on to the ball.
