    Defense shows up and gives us momentum and offense literally drops the ball.

    Thanks Davis, killed that drive.

    Defensive line needs to show up or it won't matter. Edit: well that was better. Let's try this, defense needs a pick 6.

    Yeah, the defense isn't playing like they care at all.15 yard cushions, no tackling, no pressure.

    Our defense has no desire, DL has been non-existent.

    Our defense has looked awful all of the sudden. No energy, no pressing, no flying to the ball.

    Be nice if our guys would catch the ball for Smith.

    Wish other teams didn't cover players like we do. Would make things so much easier.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Probably because the tackles was engadged with him, had hands on his back, so that he could have been blocked down into that height.
  12. Who in the world is pimping Alex for the 6-3 record or giving him a pass? Even his 'defenders' arent praising his play like hes even a middle of the pack QB. He needs to get the passing game going if we want to get and make a run in the playoffs. Without that its not happening. The defense, special teams, running game, and lack of turnovers are why we are 6-3. If the passing game was effective we would be at least 7-2 and for sure locking down the division in the next few weeks. I see people hoping he plays better, but appreciate his protecting the ball isnt pimping him. Compare the other teams starting field position this year to the last couple of years. The number of times that the opposing offense started with the ball in our territory this year versus the last couple is night and day and that comes from turnovers. We can appreciate the difference not turning the ball over has made and still think he needs to play much better throwing the ball so we can put up points.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    I have no issue with honest assessments of the team, I have said myself that the offense needs to improve even though I am very happy with the lack of turnovers. What I hate is those with a negative view dismissing our wins as if we didnt deserve them and then point to the losses as the reason to justify their negativity. The Packers game as I explained above for example, gets the 'oh we still stuck, we only beat the Packers because Rodgers was injured'. Meanwhile, the Packers beat the Bears who are rather good with that injured Rodgers, should have beaten the Vikings if the refs didnt screw them over AND their kicker miss, and went on to destroy the Bills with that same injured Rodgers. For some reason that too injured to play Rodgers played rather well in all of those other games. I think our defense stepped up and beat the Bucs who have been scoring 30 points a game by holding them to 3 points. The same people who say we were lucky to beat the Packers say the same thing about the Bucs. Its hard to win games in the NFL and we have won 6 out of 9, thats pretty darn good. I dont think we are making a deep run in the playoffs because I can look at the offensive output and honestly say thats not good enough to do it. But I dont, and dont need to, excuse our wins to be honest. Dismissing our wins like that just come across as doing anything to back up their initial negative views of the team, to the point they cant enjoy or accept that we can beat teams.

    Yep.... Ill say, I dont give a crap how ugly we win as long as we win. If we are the ugliest and called the worst team to ever win a Super Bowl I couldnt care less, as we would have done it. Im frustrated with the offense production in that it does hold back the team, but in the end as long as we win Im good. Its not easy to win in the NFL as we have all experienced. We are 6-3 with a 2 game lead on everyone else in the division and we are blown off and every talks as if the division is between the Cowboys and the Eagles. The Cowboys beat the Eagles who havent been good, so they have one win "in a row" and yet now they are on a roll and favorites to win the division. Because they play defense and can run the ball......... Hello? Bueller?

    When you are negative on the team you excuse wins as if they are easy to come by, meanwhile any loses are SEE??. For example, the Bucs average 30 points a game and we held them to 3. But thats just because the Bucs GAVE us the win. Its not that our defense went out and made plays and TOOK the ball from them. Rodgers may have come back and beaten the Bears but against us it was like we were playing Bradford and the Cardinals, etc ,etc.
