I know what it says, that the coach hasn't lost the locker room.

i hope not.

i hope that rivera helps get this team turned around and that he stays.

i don't expect it, but i hope it.

i really don't want to see the team dismantled again and have to go through another rebuilding process. i want the new GM to be the only real needed change this offseason.

the team needs to have good morale going forward. another dismantling and rebuild could have very negative effects and there's no gaurantee that the next crew coming in will be any better than the one we have.

Who cares



I would hope that you and everyone else who spends most of their days discussing the team here would care....or why would you be here?

They just have to learn how to finish. We've had the lead late in all, but one game. If we could've finished strong on just half of our losses we'd be sitting at 4 & 3. Its really shocking how close we've been to winning games, just to see them slip away....and we had the same problem last season. In two seasons we've lost a total of 12 games by 7 or fewer...somethings got to give!

Beyond the happiness of finally seeing them show up for once, a win at this point is, well, pointless.

Wins are anything but pointless.

All we've talked about for weeks is the losing mentality that has permeated the team for the last few years. The only way to turn that around is with wins. Think about draft position in week 15. Wins need to come now.

I have a strange feeling they're going to win this weekend. I'm probably wrong but whatever.

I do too. Actually, I think they're about to go on a roll, largely because of the change in offensive playcalling and the improved D.

But maybe that's just wishful thinking.

They have refined the act of disappointing their fanbase down to a science.

This will sound crazy... But I don't really think there's any way we lose this game at all. It's almost like... What does it matter? Therefore they will stomp Washington. I'm not calling a W... Because that's bad luck, but I have a really weird feeling that it won't even be close.
And yes, I know that's crazy talk

Could be. Pobably, actually. But, I also believe some of our players just aren't good enough.

I guess coaching is what should be making them good enough, but players like AE, I mean really? Not good enough.
