I guess some of you would feel better had we thrown for 400 yards and lost.

I would not.


pretty sure Cam feels the same way. i'm sure he would trade away 500 yrds for a 3-0 record

i hope Stewart takes all the carries against chicago..williams is struggling and is trying to force to much atm. I know he's been known to turn it on later in the year but go with the hot hand.

The reason why people aren't quite impressed with this ugly win, is that it is an ugly win against a sorry team with a rookie QB. If it was an ugly win over the Patriots etc, that would be different.

The thing with this team is we don't have very many 3 and Outs, and we were always a notrious 3 and Out team under Fox..give this team some time and it will start to work in the Red Zone..hopefully.

I think play calling has got to improve dramatically. Chud was crap until that TD drive. If we can fix that, and our DT situation, we would be drastically better.

It remains to be seen if J'ville is sorry. They had sorry QB play in the Jets game. I think Gabbert looked pretty good for a rookie considering he's had very few reps.

We didn't look good but a bad win is gonna be better for the team's mental outlook than a loss with zero mistakes.

On the 2 pt. conversion, I agree with the call. A 5 pt. lead is no better than 4, and a 6 pt. lead forces the Jags to make the extra pt. to win.

I wonder if arizona and greenbay felt the same way?
It was a good win for us, we are not that good of a football team with all the injuries on defense and a rookie qb as well.
the good thing being, for a change we are getting better week by week instead of worse

Jacksonville might be a better team than Arizona.

ROFL .. exactly the responses I expected :)


It's ridiculous isn't it? Feeling better after losses than a win? Some of you people are morons.

I'm still perplexed at all of the whining. We were 2-16 over our past 18 games coming into today and half the Huddlers are unhappy even though...

- We won
- Covered the spread
- Cam looked fine overall for his third start
- Cam led us on a 4th quarter comeback drive where he looked perfect
- Had the first semblance of a ground game
- No sacks
- No turnovers
- Cut the number of blown coverages down to just the weird play at the end of the first half

I really don't get it. Are our standards really this high after an 0-2 start and a 2-16 record since Opening Day last year? Or would people rather see Cam Newton being talked about on PTI after another 400 yard game? I think that might be it. There is a segment of the fan base that would much rather hear Colin Cowherd spend more segments praising us in defeat than nobody on ESPN mentioning us in victory.

might be because half the huddlers are half the age of 30?

Felt better after the losses.


You'd rather have Pro Bowlers than Super Bowlers? :confused:
