We've all been brainwashed by Rivera. It just seems like it goes from "its just preseason" to "we'll regroup after the bye and continue to improve" then "its a process and we knew it wouldn't be easy blah blah blah" just tired of hearing it i want to see it. Vanilla or not Jordan Gross said their trying to move the ball and score when you don't see that happening its concerning.

Gross isn't concerned and he is playing the games. Cam isn't worried and he has to live with that offensive line. So why are you? I trust that the guys are going it done once the season starts. The thread about it suggests exactly what I am saying.

Bronco fans aren't freaking out. They did just lose by 30 and their starting DE got carted off the field. 4 turnovers and 4 sacks. Only one TD scoring drive down the field. But it's preseason.

 

We lost by 5, had a very similar stat line, no turnovers (caused three), one sack given up (2 total in 2 games, bottom 1/4 out of all the teams, ironically), and faced a very foreign offense with a distinct agenda.

 

All the while, the Super Bowl runner-ups have yet to score a TD, and the Browns and Bills are the darlings of the preseason. We're supposed to make sense of it all? Not a chance...

 

I was more worried about the overall feeling from the Panthers against Philly. The team looked flat and it affected the overall play. Considering Rivera mentioned that the team struggled to close out TC with some vigor, that may have well played a role in the game. Enthusiasm will support overall gameplay and I expect to see that against the Ravens. If not, then concern is warranted. Otherwise, it's just preseason...

"You’re still disappointed when you lose, especially when you don’t score touchdowns.”

Jordan Gross

 

 

Nobody on the team is going to express concern why would they. Certainly not Cam after he was hammered for it last season.

Son, week 1 is gonna be a TEST.

 

Did you watch the game of just the score? 

 

 

Just the 1st half considered.

 

So they score 33 points (with a missed PAT)

 

7 is a kickoff return, no such this thing with Gano kicking.

7 on the fumble return from the end zone, that is like a one is 4 seasons thing.

6 on a two minute drive that had an interception nullified by penalty.

3 points off a short field due to a fumble

3 points off a long punt return

 

 

The leaves 7 points (granted on a nice drive, Wilson did look good on 10-15 yard throws).

 

Overall I would not worry to much over a Seahawks team on the road. If you want to worry there is plenty to worry about on our team...

Agree. No one knows how Jordan or Cam feel about the direction of the offense. 

 

That said, most of what I saw in the Philly game didn't concern me. After all, we had Star playing 3 tech for many snaps with our superstar Fua playing the nose. I wouldn't expect much of that in the regular season. Thomas played well and Norman seems to be playing much tighter coverage, so that's good.

 

The only big concern I have is Bell. He is playing like crap, simple and plain, and looks like the hoped for step forward hasn't and probably won't happen. I'm much more worried about him than Williams. Gary looks like he might be okay.

 

I love seeing Gettis step up, run nice routes, and show no hesitancy in his cuts. He could (with a strong emphasis on "could") produce as much as any WR we were likely to have drafted  this year. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope Rivera gives him plenty of opportunities.

I haven't put up my season tickets for sale I'm still giving them the benefit of the doubt even tho they don't deserve it. I'm hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. I hope they come out and look great I really do.

I'm not worried, I simply said week 1 is going to test us. It's a good way to test our teams manhood.

Seattle will not be ready for the defening silence of BofA Stadium and our "12th Librarian" crowd.

I lol'd so hard.

 

Maybe that was the master plan all along, to have teams come in ready to eat up boos and feed off of them, only to hear nothing in the stadium.

Seahawks are a better team than us right now and probably will be in week one. Doesn't mean we can't win that game.  We just have to match their intensity, concentration, teamwork, and leadership.  Under Rivera, I don't see all of these happening at the same time and that is why we lose more often than not. Inconsistency will cost us in week one.  Seattle is too complete of a team, playing as a team.

 

I thought we looked a whole helluva lot better against Chicago, but some of the same issues popped up.  Who's to say we would have been able to sustain a TD drive with the first team if Norman hadn't served the ball up to them in the red zone.  And the PI call on that pass to Olsen was legit, but we can't expect to get every call our way.  Point is we were fortunate to be in that position.  Moments later in the game, Cam threw one of the most horrifying INTs I have ever seen.  I agree that it was a "training camp type mistake" but those tend to carry over for us into the first few games.

 

Pattern:  We don't really put it together in the preseason (1-3 or 2-2 record looking mediocre).  We go 1-5 out of the gate and find ourselves in deep poo.  We lose a couple of heartbreakers that we should have won (Atl and Chi) and we are out of the playoffs by week 10.  Then we go on to win 5 or 6 games.  I don't see the pattern changing.

 

Our only hope is that Shula knows what the fug he's doing and really is holding all of his cards.  I haven't seen anything from him at all so far.  I have seen what Rivera brings and if Shula doesn't make him better, we will not play well in week 1 and we will not make the playoffs.

They where more "talented" than us last year and we lost to them by  4 pts  .......if it wasn't for that poooo throw by cam in end zone we would be  talking a different story.

 

I bet you that we beat Seattle come week 1!
