Question Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

I mean the skins have some wishy washy fans to say the least but this season seems to be So up and down..

I was just reading the official fire jim haslett Thread and their was members Shouting literally Shouting that our Defense is never gonna do anything and we shouldda stayed 4-3.

Just wondering if you guys think our whole season is gonna be up and down like the first 5 weeks or are the skins gonna find that happy medium we're all praying for ?

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

I thought this team would be 8-8 by the end of the season, but I didn't know they'd be cutting it close, and I mean a scapel grazing your jugular close, for multiple weeks in a row.

This is a transition year, I think it will continue.

I don't know i feel like itll be an up and down year but we seem pretty resilient in close games in my opinion.

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

The Haslett thread was started way long ago. And in fact we are a lot worse statistically as in yardage given up. But every fan base has positive guys (Kool-aid drinkers) and their negative guys (realists).

As for the season, I think the closeness of these games has definitely been off the chart. We may become the new improved cardiac pros

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

If we finish 11-5, I'll be surprised. If we finish 5-11, I'll be surprised.

Otherwise it seems like the normal ups-and-downs of an NFL season with a bit more parity thrown in.

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

I said 9-7 with a WC and I'm sticking to it.. But I also had Dallas winning the east at 10-6

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

Not surprised at all. I said 9-7 team before season...feel like we are headed that way.

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

Not really suprised about the games being so close. I'm thinking we should se something come together towards the end of the season. So far, I'm pretty happy. Last two years, we were close every game. We would find a way to lose, however we are now finding a way to win close games. We need to blow a couple of teams out, or I'm going to have a stroke.

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

I never thought that I would see the day that guys complained when we are currently 1 game out of 1st place in the entire NFC.
I can understand the frustration though because like always the offense hasn't been putting up that many points. On the other side of the ball where we used to be stout we are giving up a lot of yardage.

The one constant is that defensively, despite the yardage, we aren't giving up a lot of points. At the same time, due to the defense's inability to get off of the field on third down; our offense is not always getting a short field (more of the same from years past).

I can say that the one area that we have gotten better is in special teams, particularly on kick returns and the kicking game.

Now, when I think about this season I ask myself one question "How are we looking against the league?" and despite all of my problems with the team and considering what we looked like last season, I am pretty pleased. The team has turned a few things around.

With all of that being said I expect this team to start being real contenders in the next year or so. This season is looking like a little bit of collateral damage from our past, but you can actually see some things turning around and at the moment it seems that we are heading in the right direction.

That is the most insightfull post that you will see from me for an entire year so enjoy it.

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

Something everyone also should note:

Many are very upset that we have the 31st or 32nd worst defense in the League on giving up yardage...

But what you never hear,is that 2 of our 5 games so far....
Have been in Overtime!

That's a lot of extra minutes for extra yards added to the game total.

I would love to find out how much extra minutes from both OT's we have played are, in total number of minutes played....

Just something to think about...

Re: Anyone Else Surprised at the roller-coaster season

The thing I think is funniest is that optimists are considered Kool-aid drinkers but pessimists are considered realists.

I consider them wet blankets.

I noticed that, too. I consider realists to be somewhere between kool-aid on one hand and wet blanket on the other.
