True. But we haven't had this much true talent and potential yet.

I may be inclined to agree, but the schedule is way too brutal. It would be a miracle if we get past ATL/SEA with a 1-1 record. Going 2-3 into the Bye week would be a blessing.

2-3 would still be a big improvement over last year, especially with the quality of opponents we're facing.

it's difficult to stay positive in times like this when you want to just burn everything down and cut football out of your heart, but there are bright spots.

Write it down, we're beating Atlanta. And Seattle, because I'm going to that game and will get down there on the field and start busting heads if we don't.

I wish I was still naive. Okay is all we are. Okay isn't good enough. Okay is 8-8, or 7-9. Are you okay with okay?

Seasons still in the first qtr. They'll click. Just wait.

I'm just not feeling it with this team. They have enough talent to be very dangerous, but we are getting a sub-standard product out of the talent we have.

Our D looks to have regressed in many ways, in spite of getting people back and adding through the draft. I am just not comfortable that our guys are getting good coaching, and it really pains me to say that.

If we go 8-8 then Rivera deserves coach of the year a long with a contract extension.

    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
