Let's not get ahead of ourselves

First of all props to the Skins for an amazing win. I wont lie, I put this down as a loss beforehand, but I continue to get excited about the Skins.

But lets take a deep breath and realize barely 1/4th of the season is completed. We have a LONG way to go.

The next three games(Rams, Browns, @ Lions) are very winnable, but we could loose games we need to win. honestly I am scared about the Rams, they could win if we sleep on them, and I dont think they are that bad. Also I am not ready to mark the Browns as bad club, and by that time they might put in Quinn to mix things up.

Also for all the people who see the glass as half empty, post in this thread and this thread alone.

Some things we need to improve on:
-Special teams(mainly growing pains with Brooks)
-leaving points on the field, honestly guys we can put up 40+ per week, but silly mistakes hurt us.
-Defense not lining up on time. We got burned on a play while we taking forever to get set.
-Rogers, catch the ball! Otherwise you are amazing
-I still think JC sometimes takes a bit too long to pass, and he stares down receivers at times.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

True

But it is Sunday let us enjoy this while we can.

We can face reality on Tuesday or Wednesday. This is the best i have felt this early in a while. We should be good every year but this year we are really playing well. We have 2 starters gone on D (J. Taylor and Springs) and we win. Last year and before we would lose with those 2 out.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

I think the players share your sentiment based on the interviews I've heard - they all commented on how St Louis could be a dangerous team - new coach, well rested after their bye week, and hungry for their first win.

All we need is to win 2 of those 3 games, and we'll be on track for the playoffs. I'd prefer we win the Rams & Lions games since they will count against our NFC record in the playoff calculations.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

Whos getting ahead of themselves...? We just finished winning four games in a row. You enjoy the moment! Get ready for work Wednesday!

This team is clearly staying very focused at the task at hand one team and game at a time, regardless of any media input or forecast. Thats just what you want!

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

Oh believe me I am happy, like I said let's keep the thread for people who a bit pessimistic. That way we dont bump heads in the threads where we are suppose to be happy. Complain here, praise there.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

I wonder if the team itself will look past these next three games. Those 3 teams are 1-11 so saying we are gonna be 7-1 isn't cocky. We should be 7-1 and anything less at this point would be a major disappointment because we are better than all of those teams.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

look I didnt mean to be a buzzkill, sorry close down the thread if you want. I really just dont want to get my hopes up, and I thought our "knowledgeable" posters might want to talk about a couple points which can take us to the next level.

Re: Let's not get ahead of ourselves

Let's take it one game at a time. I'm looking forwards to our rematch with the G-men.

I disagree...

LET'S PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999!

On Tuesday, the team can refocus and prepare for the SILENCING OF THE LAMBS!
