We're 0-2 and only 1 game out of first.

Only 1 division game down, still 5 to go. All is not lost even though things seem pretty damn bleak right now.

That being said we need to get on track and FAST.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

People seem to think we're the only 0-2 team in the NFL, but has anyone seen how awful the Bucs have looked? I'll bet they wished they had Griese now. Or how about everyone's SB pick, the Panthers. Those guys are 0-2 as well.

Should the unlikely event we reclaim the division and make it to the playoffs I will mail you a gift certificate or let you chose a home game you would like to accompany me with next year. But seriously, I love you for mentioning there is a bright side, but save the talk man. That bright side is the season,morale,hopes,chances of the team, city,and playoff likelihood going up in flames. And that is truth. Never have I looked more forward to being wrong and in debted but be for real. All it takes is one player in there to have a doubt or suspicion. 0-2, this team does not believe anymore in themsleves and mgt.

How do you know they don't believe in themselves anymore? This another one of your gut feelings that will be revealed in due time?

Yes, due time being Week1 and 2. They shape changed the offense with Al(everyyear is rotating door) for coaches, players. I saw a crazy stat at Minn. game that said of the 22 Pro Bowlers brought in since 1990 they never produced and made it to the Pro Bowl with us. That is terrible. Bias voting aside not 1 guy. Im upset I believe it every damn year.

But I know football man, do you think by midseason with production like this even a QB changed, mathematical certainty if playoffs is out of the question players wont second guess all the effort in the offseason and hard work put in that they can get it down? Thats where Im coming from. The defense isnt even middle of the pack in rankings and to have the offense struggle and is this impotent you think they will believe in themselves. Has there ever been a case of losers who believe in themselves. The glue that prevented us from that last year was these guys who got results and fought there way out. Taf- Im not seeing how they can turn it around unless Jason has the smarts and fortune like Roethilisburger did. Im the biggest debbie downer here but I also see what is going on.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

We have problems on offense and defense. Last year the problems were offense early on. This year we couldn't cover a 3rd down pass if we were getting paid to do so! All facets need to tighten up. Bet Saunders didn't sleep much nor did Gibbs. I bet Brunell had a crappy BDAY. I'll tell ya I had a crappy Brunell bday. I still believe but we gotta make it happen. Best we can finish is 14-2 and we got rough schedule ahead. Springs and Portis should help in wk4 but don't count on them to save our team if we can't produce in other areas...

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

22 penalties for 117 yards, and 2-14 on 3rd down...that sucks sooo bad.

I think we've found out over the last two games how important Portis is to the offense, and how important Springs is to the defense. Obviously 22 penalties can't be attributed to either of those guys, but it's pretty clear the offense and defense are almost worthless without them.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

maybe sometimes coaches egos get in the way of coaching? we let bledsoe just sit back there all game because we keep telling ourselves that kenny wright and mike rumph cant cover anyone. this is not the aggressive style that made our d a top ten defense the last couple of years. and why cant our line block anymore?

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

After week one I looked at the schedule again. With the way we have played, I can see us going 5-6 again and having our backs against the wall. By then, if we are healthy, I think we will be ready to go on another 5 game tear and win the division at 10-6. (3 tough games at home, 2 so-so games on the road).

I agree that is bad, but those refs were throwing flags at everything (both teams). They seemed to be on some kind of yellow flag mission.

besides that run in december, that was how they've been blocking for the last two years :/.


I'm not sure the saunders/new shiny toys experiment is as super awesome as advertised. If brunell still looks this bad by half time in houston, give campbell a shot. that's a good game to see if he can do anything. I can't possibly see brunell leading anyone to a superbowl, and next year he'll be even older and more injury prone. So if we've got a window, let's see if we've got a QB to go with it.

trying not to over react, but that's a second terrible game where the offense and defense were both huge letdowns. We've earned our record thus far :/ hopefully it'll click like last year, but i think the offseason looks even more like an overreaction that failed to address the team's actual needs for window dressing.

Re: 0-2 but only 1 game out of first

0-2 is way too early to give up. 14 games to go, 14! 5 division games to go!

All I can say is look back to last year. 5-6. The season appeared to be lost. I for one sure thought it was. The team turned it around. Anything is possible and it's a very long season.

Things can only improve from here on out.

If there's any team to get on track against, it's the one coming up on Sunday.
