It makes me sick to think of this

We are 2-7. In my opinion there is no way we should have lost the ATL and CHI games. If we held on to just those two games we would currently be 4-5.

When I look at the rest of our schedule I can't help but think that there are three likely wins left on our schedule SD, KC, and OAK. There are two games IMO we should win against the Bucs and a likely Vickless PHI. Then two that we could win ATL at home and NO although we would be underdogs in both games.

Despite how bad we played and not even considering the SEA, DAL, and Tampa games that we were one score away from winning.

If we just held on to those two games we would have a very good shot at 9 wins and a legitimate shot at 10 wins and possibly the playoffs.

Just make me sick to my stomach that we are so close yet also so very far away.

I think Rivera's tenure to date can be summed up perfectly in one idiom:

"Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades"

This team is going to need plenty of hand grenades after they play the Saints down in New Orleans.

I think (if I remember correctly) if you go back and look at the 2003 season where we went to the super bowl, the games were very similar EXCEPT that we got those breaks and won the close games... this year, we are just on the losing end of bad/dumb breaks.

I have thought about this same exact thing... we could very well be near .500 right now except for a few little things and mistakes.

Close also counts in slow dancing IMO

Good teams find ways to win the game. Losers find comfort in being oh so close.

You are over thinking this an trying to make meaning out of things and twist it around. The team is 2-7. They are not good and are not close to a 9 or 10 win team.

It isn't comfort, it is frustration.

I disagree and I don't see how a team that is a TD away in each game from being 7-2 instead of 2-7 is not close. We have several flaws and I am not saying that we are SB contenders. But I don't think we are as terrible as many of you think we are.

I also don't think it is unfair to say that we should have won the CHI and ATL games but flukey things happened that prevented us from winning those games like WRs falling down and weird backward fumbles and hail mary passes.

Especially when you "one man" isn't your best player.
