So you're saying there's a chance?

Nothing like picking at old scabs huh

Re: Can we get a little luck?

these plays ring out as bad luck to us because we don't have better ones to make up for it

AP had clay matthews strip the ball and run it back for a TD.. we'd see that as bad luck because it would lose the game

it's only temporarily unfortunate for Minn, because they won and looked mostly good doing so

Everyone's talking about luck when we all know damn well it's a curse...the Snyder Curse lol Sorry, but dude just cannot get a plan to come together, kinda feel sorry for the guy, but we'll be lucky to see another ring as long as he's involved imho. I've felt this way ever since Gibbs left...again.

Seriously, we've completely deserved our 2 wins against the non-schedule we've played.

Expected W-L: 1.8-2.2. <--Per PFR.
I'm not saying we deserved to lose those games but I'm not going to use some expected win stat to say that we earned those well.

How did the losses come about?

Re: Can we get a little luck?

In Gibbs I, he had Richie Petitbon (sp?) as his defensive coach. He won. In Gibbs II, he didn't have Petitbon, and he seemed lost, almost to the point of having people feel sorry for him. Plus Bugel was a lot younger back then (we all were!), but can he really see what the offensive line really looks like? So I'm tired of listening to those who say that what this team needs is for Gibbs to come back.

Re: Can we get a little luck?

Luck is the residue of good preparation and planning. Don't remember who said that but it is more true than not true.


The Skins will get a little luck when they plan better on how to put together a winning team and a winning organization. Until then, so long and thanks for all the fish...

At the time I felt like it was just bad luck, but give carolina credit; their guy pushed westbrook into ARE which caused that to happen. If westbrook could've held his ground, that wouldn't have happened.

1. Portis has worked out quite well, been solid for us until mid-last year.
2. Lavar was garbage when he left.

3. Agreed on O-Line and Vinny.
