    We are not the worst team in the NFL. But we aren't very good either. It's not suprising losing like this. Look what San Diago did against Denver.

    I think a more telling game will be next week against Oakland.

    But but we have good Christian boys on our team committed to community service. That is all that matters right?:redtowel: :redtowel:

    I will stop by and drop off some orange wedges and juice boxes. Our boys sure tried hard today.

    Over the last 5 weeks, we ARE the worst team in the NFL. We should've lost to Miami, but got lucky late.

    Next Sunday is the season - if we end up at 3-6, they are toast and have no shot at 8 -8. For purely pride reasoning, next week is a must win...

    Yes, that's true. Things have been going from bad to worse lately. As to how bad we really are, let's see what happens next week at Oakland. Did anyone really think we stood a chance today?

    No, but I expected a better than 35-10 showing. After they pathetically paraded out the tearful firemen and the Governator for a pre-game speech, I knew it was bad news, though.

    The Oakland game is the "Biggest Game In Franchise History!"

    Oh my freaking goodness. If I were a Rams fan or Dolphins fan, I don't know what I'd do. Heck, if I was a Falcons fan...

    Guess we should be thankful for at least a glimmer of hope at the beginning of the season.

    Honestly, I am sick of these snot nosed fair weather fans. Does anyone remember the last time we started out 3-5? No, no one does because we have never had 3 wins in the first 8 weeks of the season (at least I don't believe that we have). Does anyone remember how putrid our entire team had been?

    Trust me, if this was still the Carr/Capers era we would probably be 0-8, and with the likes of a 1-7 Miami Dolphins squad. I can not see us coming back from 14 under to beat the Panthers with any of our old squads. I can't see us shutting down Larry Johnson with any of our old squads. Our team is in a hole right now, yes. However, for the first time it's not unimaginable that they could climb out of it and at least deliver a .500 season.

    Things could be a lot worse. We could be Miami, who traded their only decent offensive player for draft picks (I can not believe that some are suggesting we do the same here).

    Yep, we will find out exactly where we stand in that game. A true measurement of where we are at as a team.

    Hate to break it to you but our season was over before it started. It's not like we were on the path to SuperBowl greatness this year. Be realistic. 8-8 doesn't get you crap in the AFC.

    the Texans are still the only NFL team the Raiders have never beaten. Based on what I saw in their game against the titans, that record could fall this coming Sunday.

    They have a pretty good defense, and I'm willing to bet $1 that Russell gets his first playing time against the Texans. He dressed for the first time against the titans, but going home next week would be the perfect time to make his debut against the NFL's version of the punching bag.

    It's not all doom and gloom. We're 3-5, and after the Raiders I expect fully we'll be sitting (with some safe passing, safe grinding running and letting Brown kick us to victory in what'll probably be fairly low scoring) at 4-5 going into the bye. A weeks rest and preparation for the Saints may do us well, and then moving onto the Browns (who are 4-3, with their needlessly hardfought wins over the Rams and Dolphins).

    Hopefully Schaub will be ready to go after the bye week, the recievers are looking good even without Andre, Brown could kick cabbages for field goals and there have been some decent performances against the run so far (which I think will help us next week). We need to protect the ball next week, cut out the turnovers and silly mistakes (the 14 points from the int and punt put us out of contention), and we'll be sitting here this time next week at 4-5, with a week to organise outselves for a final push.

    Anyone expecting a sudden 10-6 trip to the wildcards was being foolish. To get anything out of this division (let alone conference) will take time and patience, but there is no doubt we've been moving in the right direction this season. And anyone calling for Kubiak's head is just being stupid.

    If you were a Falcons fan you could say you beat the Texans.
