    I'm starting to get worried.

    Baldinger, Sharpe, now Marcellus Wiley.

    Too many people are picking us to upset the Colts.

    I don't know how to handle this.

    At least Schlereth picked us to lose. So that's good.

    Contrary to what our fans on the boards believe, this team is not as bad as the doom and gloomers are saying. And the if we play like we did last week, the Colts are beatable. We are only a few plays away from being 2-1.

    Good teams know they will make those plays, our team has not gotten to the point that they know.

    0-3 will do that to a fanbase. :whistle:

    I think we can play better than we have in these first three games, as well, FWIW. We just have to wait and see if they do it.

    I think we'll win...and Slaton and Green will be the reason why...

    Yes Green...Ahman Green. Hopefully Slaton will take off the load for Green and we will finally get some production from him...kinda like how MJD took the load off of Fred Taylor.

    Slaton is getting us some nice publicity around the news media so I think he's the real reason.

    How do you take the load off of Green? Keep him from getting on the field at all? He'd probably trip on a gatoraid cup and break an ankle.

    I can't even say, "Keep him from taking a single hit," because that wouldn't be enough protection for him.

    Maybe just limit him from back-2-back carries. It sounds small but it could make a big difference for him.

    So which one of those guys do you think is sexy? 'Cuz I think they're all ugly men.

    Granted, I picked the Texans this week too, so maybe you think *I'm* sexy...

    I've already sunk, Gary. So this week won't affect me. But if we can win at least 3 of these home games, I can start to feel better again.

    I have to admit that I was worried about Schaub's performance the first 2 games, but he put together a nice game against the Jags last week. Now the Defense still scares the **#% out of me.

    I'm not a moron, just because I think the team is better than the masses think it is, doesn't mean the defense doesn't scare me also.

    Those talking heads don't have an idea who's going to win any game ever. I don't think it's a jinx but it would probably be better if they were saying we were going to get killed. Then it would be a reverse jinx which could turn into good juju.
