What is worst to watch? A horrible defense, or a horrible offense?

Horrible offense = low scoring games and sad Cam.

I was ready to hang myself after the 2010 season.

I got my hopes up in the 2011 season for us to dominate in the 2012 season.

I have been disappointed so far in the 2012 season.

These last 2 years have been painful, but nothing compares to the torture of the 2010 season...

2010 season I couldn't help but think "we're 3-4 years away from a having a decent team IF we can draft a good QB". I listened to some of the games on the radio while I did something else. There's nothing worse than a team with a terrible offense.

Horrible offense. At least when the offense is playing well and the defense blows, the games are more exciting to watch. Although, when most of those exciting games end in losses the let down and feeling after the game is worse too, with the adrenalin having gotten so high during the game.

In 2010 you just became numb watching the games. It's more disappointing this year than it was that year cause of the talent we have.

I disagree... 2009 seemed almost like Our Destiny to win the Super Bowl... 2 1,000 yd rushers and our owner was undergoing a heart transplant. The story line was just too perfect... And then it happened... Him (whom I will not mention) threw 5 picks... End of destiny.

[/quote]that was 06 more than 07. We probably would of made the playoffs in 07 if jake didn't get hurt.

unfortunately.

the sad thign is that we've had talent in a lot of places, but management/coaching has been bad and inconsistent.

i loved the early success with fox, but i think it made him and hurney too confident. they thought they had figured it out and had the right combo so why change?

they'd follow success with a down year largely because they were complacent. that was the culture they created. the bar was set far too low.

i really hope that the new GM brings about a standard of excellence and a willingness to adapt and grow as a team as opposed to finding one way that works one time and stick with it because all of a sudden it's "proven".

2008 was the season that Jake threw all those picks in the playoffs, 2009 we had 2 rusher for over 1K, but we only had a record of 8-8...

But the OP was talking about the last 3 years, so I was thinking 2010, 2011 and half of 2012.....

But I do agree, losing to the Cards was a downer, and it almost made me hate them as much as the Patriots....

That game. Ugh, that game. You just had to remind us.

That game was a turning point, and I think most of us knew it deep down in our hearts. Sometimes teams just have a bad game, but that one was much more. We got exposed.

Please don't ever bring up the AZ playoff game ever again. No point is worth being made if you have to reference that game.

Asking which is worse is a lot like asking someone whether they want to be kicked in the balls or punched in the face. Both are painful just one is more painful then the other. I would rather endure another 2011 than another 2010, But again, neither are very appealing.

a horrible offense is almost impossible to watch.

as frustrating as it is to endure 2011, 2010 made me want to slit my wrists.

I'd rather watch a bad defense. While you may never be able to stop anybody, at least you can MAYBE have a shot at a shootout. Plus, if you have a good offense, you can chew clock, which helps your cause despite of your bad defense. If you have a bad offense, you're relying on either your defense scoring (odds are not likely for that to happen often, let alone often enough to keep you in games) or a ST touchdown (even less likely than a defensive touchdown).
