Sorry, but my optimism has run dry. They've given up 110 points and 1,339 yards in the last three games, compared to scoring 51 points and gaining 718 yards - almost doubled up in both categories. Not just any three games either - Division games, Conference games, and games that started with them controlling their own destiny. They have officially shit the bed and it runneth all over the room. COVID and injuries have hit them hard, and they are getting some guys back, but don't hold your breath. Honestly Gilbert looked better against Philly than both Heinicke and Allen did in the Dallas games. There's your first clue that this isn't going to happen. No way they beat Philly, and it's a toss up against NY. Both will be away games...
I agree that we have sucked ass but we have seen this team win games that we didn't think was possible.

They don't control their own destiny anymore but crazier things have happened.

Go back to your hole Troll.

Your team will be one and done in the post season as usual, but if it makes you feel good to frolick in a field of bluebonnets after your team manhandled a severely depleted team with no QB1, enjoy. I am sure it will be short-lived.

They played against a team with no name...

Last 3 weeks we've barely been able to field a scrubs line-up. But we've also been out coached. O got away from the run game too early in all 3 games, and JDR doesn't seem to have an answer for anything. Even ST's have looked awful, and up to now I'd say they've been something of a strength. Yes the roster is a big part of that, but there is also a big part for coaching to play.

The current starting line-ups are going to make anyone look better. The coaches don't seem to have a clue how to patch the holes.

Re: Week 16

The team has been decimated the last few weeks with injuries and covid and people are asking why the coaches can't cook up a wining formula with shit ingredients.

Not necessarily winning, but at least competitive. The Cowboys pass offense carved us up, and it was our run defence we were worried about. The OL aren't scrubs but they played 2 games vs the Cowboys and 1 vs the Eagles like they hadn't even practiced together. I'd argue the blocked punt was avoidable (as said elsewhere Smallwood got owned, and he's no rookie).

Yes the roster has been shaken up, but they looked like they hadn't been coached, especially the D. And Heinike looked all at sea, whereas a month before he was as on fire as he's likely to get; that first INT was all down to his bad timing/inaccuracy, as Scary was open. The scrap between Payne and Allen wasn't the only sign of dysfunction.

I remember the scrubs we put out during the strike, and while they lacked talent as a unit, they played with passion. I haven't see anything like that passion last 3 weeks.
