just kidding and i agree with a lot of that, but it seems like every year since 2010 has been "the most important year" for the franchise.

lot's of turning points. lot's of right turns. keeps getting us back to losing records.

here's hoping that this time they take the left turn at albuquerque.



Well thank you Rayzor, im glad you agree, and yes these past few years have been very important. This one is a bit different though. We finally got rid of the albatross known as teh hurney. We could really make some headway with the right hire and a good draft. Each of those is dependent on the other.

i've been told numerous times by others exactly how many posts i have and broken it down to me to tell how many posts a day its been. last time someone mentioned it i think it was over 20k. not sure where it is now. maybe i should look to see if my life has gotten better. lol

i think that kind of stuff (post count) matters to others more.


It's a curiosity to me.

I'm probably better off not knowing :lol:

Helen Keller could have made those two drafts picks and looked like a football guru. Thanks to Hurney for those guys but lets keep it real Bwood. The man did us few, very few favors.

Helen Keller's prowess as a football scout is underrated.

i just hope we didn't make another mistake by failing to clean the slate again.

hopefully it's a do or die year for the rivera era, and contrary to the way i may have been sounding i hope that he gets it done because all i care is about making this team a winning team.

i just don't have the confidence others do that rivera can make what happened the last part of the season happen all year.

The wins at the end of the season don't mean anything, they have been wiped clean. But what does matter is the fact that Rivera and Chud changed the way they were coaching from earlier in the season. RR stopped coaching scared and we actually started to see some of his personality in the way the team fought. And Chud actually started calling a much more balanced game and stopped outthinking himself, and our offense obviously responded. So, as long as both of those changes continue, I actually think we will be happy next year, however, if they revert, then we will be in for more of the same.
