our overall performance is undershadowed by obscenely awful situational football that has us 2-3 instead of 4-1. i'd say so, yes.

 

I agree with the bolded.  However the bolded has been the norm for 3 years now.  So with that being the norm, I can't say we are underrated since we consistently choke.

We are exactly what our record says we are.

I need to see us beat a higher quality team than the Giants, Vikings and - frankly - the Rams before I'll be ready to become more optimistic.

You have to accomplish something to be underrated. Right now we are just the best of the worst. Sunday is a game that this team needs to win and should win, but will probably lose. Every time we take a step forward we take a step back.

According to this metric:  2-3, no, they're not underrated.

We're inconsistent. Probably one of the NFL's most inconsistent teams at the moment - concerning winning games. So it's hard to say if we're underrated. Which team are we actually? The one that blew out the Vikings and Giants (albeit they are poo this year)? Or the team that lost to Arizona?

I'd like to think we're the team that blew out the Giants, but again it doesn't show up enough for me to completely say with certainty that we're underrated. If it did we'd be looking at a much better record at this moment, one that's at least over .500.

underrated? nope.

 

underachieving? yep.

 

good/great in most metrics except for the one that really matters, wins.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
