Wish I could, but there is this:

4 winning seasons in 17 years and we've lost 11 of 17 season openers. That is our history and tradition. I'm not pessimistic, I'm being realistic.

If we come out and put our collective foot on the Saints***' throats come Sunday, then we're right back at even. If we don't, look for more of the same.

No. I'm on bobcats planet and realgm as well. I just have different screen names and you don't know who i am. i've seen your work on all 3 boards. Your a pessimist! lol.

Now, tell me how much success we have had among all of our local professional franchises?

Again, realist.

I think we really need to look at some of those 5-8 yard crossing routes at times. Im not too worried, our sch. is brutal, and I always said 4-12/6-10, something like that.

That's not really how i see it. I've seen plenty of threads on all 3 boards where something is not necessarily good or bad, but up for interpretation, and your usually one of the first people to see the negative side of an argument. I'm not judging you as a person. I'm sure your a nice guy, but that's just what i've noticed. I'm not really even sure you're aware that you do it. But believe me, you do.

This idea that we need a normal game plan to overcome our poor offensive line play is looking for excuses to ignore the obvious. The O-line play was horrible and Chud adapted too late to overcome their embarrassing performance. If you want something to be positive about - look at the defense, but let's not make excuses as if a normal game plan will fix everything.

But, my reaction is up for interpretation just as the subject matter is. You perceive it as negative, but I perceive it as objective realism. Check out my threads and posts when our franchises aren't doing stupid stuff or playing mediocre. I'm as optimistic as anyone. And I recognize the positives when we have them.

But truth is, we have a losing tradition and until we doing something that bucks that trend, that is the angle I view our situation from. It also seems extreme to most because I care about my hometeams like they are a part of me. It hurts when we lose.

I bet we still win 10 games. And to rip saw: You can't say that unfamiliarity wasn't a factor today. The defense played night and day better in the 2nd half, the pass protections were clearly better, and we moved the ball through the air in the 2nd half. There's no denying that. It was completely clear to me. If we played tampa in both halves like we played the 2nd we would've won that game. Ugly win, but it still would've been a win.
