Where's the faith? Where's the trust? Where's the confidence? Or the hope? Why is it so hard to believe that JR actually is trying to get this thing right? Or that our new GM may actually like Rivera? That our staff is actually improving is not that farfetched.

where is the reason for it? where is the faith supposed to be based?

what are we supposed to be using as evidence that those hopes and dreams have any basis in reality?

this team's glorious past?

so far all i've seen is a team with potential. i have yet to see a team that can make that potential to succeed turn into success when it counts.

I can see how some could view it as fool hope. History is not bitch to mess with. Last year was the offense covering the defense. But we finished well enough to foster that hope.

This years finish has a different feel to it. We were a more complete team this year. Fewer penalties, better tackling, better play, a just more consistent effort. I don't see the false hope. I see a team on the verge of being dynamic.

I just don't see a reason to be pessimistic. I say give Rivera one more draft, one more offseason, and let the chips fall where they may. I happen to believe we will be the team we want. Some don't.

I'm just kidding. I love JR.
I hope he can go out and give us some help through FA.

"I'm very optimistic that JR will go bring AT LEAST some players like Pat Chung, McKelvin, and a RG or DT to help us out".


Not really a big deal. I just get frustrated will all the negativity. And of course those folks that make things up to gripe about. Sometimes I don't know when to let it go. I blame the interwebz.

I also happen to believe just because Rivera was retained does not necessarily mean we cannot get a quality GM. But that could just be me too.

good luck selling those PSLs.


Already sold 'em Rayzor. I started advertising them in October when I realized I was probably going to miss more homes games this season than I had in the past 16. And the wife's schedule was such that she was going to miss the second 4 home games.

Got a reasonable offer after Week 10....
Accepted the offer after Week 12. I didn't make out too bad- lost about 18%, spread out after 17+ seasons isn't too bad, I guess. I originally asked for 10% less than what I paid.
