That was the most disgusting loss we've had yet. I'm always gonna bleed black, blue, and silver, but I don't know that I can keep watching this heartbreak every Sunday.

There is no excuse for us to lose the way we did today. NONE. We lose by 7 or less to the best teams in the league (and could've/should've beat them), but we essentially get blown out by the Falcons? Pathetic.

It doesn't matter what our offense does because our defense can't stop sh*t. Chud is exposing himself to be a pass happy idiot with no sense of offensive balance. Coach Rivera calls timeouts when we don't need them and doesn't call them when we do. The defensive schemes and STs have no hope at all, it almost makes me want to vomit.

Today wasn't just a loss for today... It was a reminder that if we had any hope for the rest of the season, we shouldn't. We know we have a franchise QB, but little else. Yes, we have two of the top RBs in the NFL and two great TEs, and Smitty, but none of that matters because they aren't utilized effectively when it matters.

I don't give a sh*t about stats. I'm seriously disgusted with this season. If we hadn't lost half of our fuging defense we would've won at least one other game so far... I won't say more because the DT position is the worst in the league by far. They may as well sign one of us up from this board to line up at DT because these dudes are horrible.

JR may have opened up the check book this offseason to sign back our own guys but another huge fault in our philosophy and direction of our franchise is following the "develop through the draft" mantra. Go look at all the other great teams, if they have a hole, they sign a guy or make a trade. Not that there is a magic trade you can make to fix your entire team, but there are moves that can be made and I'm sick of suffering losses because "we're developing our young guys!"

I don't want to hear anymore rah rah speeches, how mad Cam is after losses, Smitty talking sh*t, Rivera talking about how we're getting better... We're not. We should be better.

We will most likely get maybe one to two more wins this season, mostly because our coaches are showing to be idiots and Hurney sits on his hands (or will make a big move for another team's practice squad DT or WR, oooooh!).

Today was just a reminder of all that is still wrong with our team and I don't care if this sounds emo, this team is really breaking my heart.

We didn't get blown out dude, that's just the score, you and I both know the Panthers were in the game for the majority.

This loss not so much, I expected Cam to have a crash course game (in which he really didn't play bad at all) but that Saints game totally sapped the life out of me.

I'll just coast along with the rest of this season, and keep my expectations low like I should have.

Sadly, the losses are getting easier, just as they did last season. I feel like a Raiders fan.

I am seriously concerned that we are going to turn into a team with video game stats and a 2-14 record and will continue to be a big laughingstock going into next year as well. We are not learning how to win for shi*. Just learning how to lose many different ways.

the only reason anyone has been optimistic this season is cam has been lighting it up. every other facet of the team has been a massive disappointment. cam sucked today, so of course everyone will be less optimistic.

the defense is TOTAL poo

we couldnt stop a fuging wheelchair football team (if there ever was one)

my optimism was seriously diminished after last week, but now its totally gone. i really cant see us stopping any other team this year. Vikings have AP, Redskins will be pissed next week, Colts will be desperate.

You're seeing today what happens when Cam doesn't play lights out. We get exposed. We need to totally revamp our defense personnel. Am I the only person who thinks they look physically small compared to every offense in the NFL? That's why they are getting blown off the ball and can't tackle anyone. Other than our front four, the rest of the D is undersized.

I said "essentially" blown out. You're right, it wasn't just the score, it was the feeling of the game. I didn't feel we were in it after that first pick.

Could've gotten a FG at the least on that drive if we played it just a little closer to the vest and then got the ball back to start the second half. It was all downhill from there.

That was a blowout. Having the ball ran down our throats, them running the same fuging playaction rollout run/pass option on us 500 f*cking times a game... I'm sick of it.

They completely killed our team and any spirit we had in this game. They imposed their will on us and no other team had done that to this point... This was a backbreaker in my opinion, it was them or us, and they came out with a convincing win. Our team is soft.
