The first 2 games last year...

So we are 0-2. Last year at this point we were 2-0. We played about as crappy our first 2 games last year as well. We just got lucky.

In the first game we got 3 field goals. The bears almost took the lead late in the fourth quarter but their QB threw a bad pass and we picked it off. That could have gone either way, just like the Vikings game.

We all remember the Dallas game. They outplayed us the whole game last year as they did this year. After what happened last year and all the talk about it, you can't see Dallas giving up two huge plays like that again. At least in this game we scored 10 points in the first half. I know those passes to Moss were amazing, but we could have maybe even should have lost that game... and been 1-1 or 0-2.

The team got off to a slow start just like this year... We just got a few more breaks in '05. We'll see what happens...

That seems to be most people's feelings around here, eh?

Re: The first 2 games last year...

Don't forget, we almost lost the first three games last year. Seattle's kicker blew a 41yd FG that could've won them the game.

I'm not worried about 0-2. I am worried about how we are playing though.

Well, let's pick apart those 10 points, shall we?

The field goal was part of a "drive" that included two personal foul penalties against Dallas, with one of them being complete BS. I'm sorry. These days, the refs are treating quarterbacks as though they are flag football players. That roughing the passer penalty should not have been called.

And while it's great to see special teams step up, and I'm happy for Rock Cartwright, it was all for naught -- we need to see the offense take it to the house.

That's true. But our offense looked just as bad or worse in the game last year .... for the first 56 minutes, at least.

Re: The first 2 games last year...

So what's your point? Last year we started 2-0 in spite of playing poorly and finished 10-6. This year are we going to go 8-8?

Regardless of how the games go, there is a pretty damn massive difference between being 0-2 and 2-0

Re: The first 2 games last year...

The point is that everyone's mood is completely different than last year this time... and yet the team is playing at about the same level.

Hopefully this year we can really kick it into gear before the 10th or 11th game... like we did last year.

if you think our defense played this crappily lat year, i seriously suggest you go back and rewatch that bearss and dallas game. they gave up 20 points, not 46.

Re: The first 2 games last year...

Let's not freak out yet. Brunell has to get comfortable with the offense (along with the rest of the offense) and this is a good team for that to happen. Let's not act like the season is lost. We are going into week 3 playing Houston. If we lose this one, then we can freak out!

The mood was completely different because ummm... Washington was 2-0 and they had just beaten Dallas in a heartstopper. This year, the piss poor level of play has cost them the first two games, and they were just shellacked by Dallas. It's not that hard to figure out the difference in attitude.

And kicking it into gear by week 10 or 11 won't matter much, when they're 3-8 by that point...

I have to agree with you. No matter how sloppy those first two games were last year, they were still wins. The team still has a really tough schedule ahead of them after Houston and wins are going to be really hard to come by.
Last season was really nice and all, but a lot of things went our way, so we really shouldn't be looking back too much.
