Look it sucks that we've lost 4 straight games, I get it. And perhaps I'm insane but I'm with JDR I like this team. I think we have some great potential. I think as the year goes on and things start clicking we can be competitive with every team. Look at the back half of the schedule, I think we could go on a tear in the tail end of the schedule, almost every game looks winnable assuming our offensive play continues to improve week after week.
I've been saying for a while we really have NO IDEA what this team can do as we're dependent on the rookie QB. I think we rise and fall with him. Our defense has been very good, better than I expected. We're #8 in the league right now. Compare that to last year when we were consistently in the last 3-4 in the league. LB's look better, Corners look good, safeties look VASTLY improved. Line looks decent although we don't have that Kampman impact player of the first half of last year.
I had a blast at the game on Sunday, It was fun and exciting. Was I upset they lost, sure but the entertainment value was still there. I was entertained. Every game but the Jets game which I pin all on McCown we've been competitive. We had the CHANCE to win. Eventually as Gabbert gets better I think we'll start to win those close ones. If we can start scoring 25-30 each week and our defense stays top 10-15 we have a chance to win every game in the back half of the schedule. I don't know that I would have said that three weeks ago.
I like our potential for 2012 and beyond. Give us a dominant pass rusher and wide receiver and a few capable fill ins here and there and this could be a very good team for the next 3-4 years.
Maybe I'm insane but I still like this 1-4 team and I for one am entertained and having fun.
