Not a bad look at first but no way Wade should be 2 points higher than Stephenson

But would they get blown out in back to back games?

 

Are you asking for help playing the game or being condescending?  Because if you want my opinion, I think yes is the more likely answer.

 

If you look at our game, you get rid of one 12 men on the field penalty, and you score points on the first drive where we were moving the ball and in field goal range before getting sacked, that's at the very least a 10 point swing right there.  Then if you take away the fumble by a 5th string practice squad RB, there we are, right in the game.  Not to mention their garbage lucky TD that could have just as easily bounced the other way.  

 

Same with the Steelers IMO.  You take away a couple of penalties, the muffed punt, etc, we're right in the game.  I think with a fully healthy team both of those games could have gone completely differently.  Look at our offense on the field against the Steelers without DWill, JStew and Tolbert.  No Cotchery.  No Avant.  We're relying completely on two rookie WRs and our TE.

 

I get where our relative expectations might have been going in but if you would have told me we'd be 2-2 after 4 games while having to play 2 games without significant contributions from our starting RBs/Thomas Davis/2 of our starting WR, I would take it in a heartbeat.  I think most of us would have taken 2-2 here regardless of the circumstances after last year and in general across a tough part of a 4 game schedule.  I'm not happy with the way the last 2 weeks have gone, but it's much easier to go about fixing your problems when:

 

1. The biggest one involves injuries that aren't season-ending.

2. You're leading your division.

I'm just wondering if there aren't a lot of other fan forums out there where the majority of topics concerning a 2-2 team tied for the division lead are positive like this one with a lot more responses.  After starting 1-3 last year it's an improvement.  I get that we're not where we want to be and we've literally been embarrassed for the past two weeks..but the lack of perspective here is a joke.  Look at the defenses in our division.  A fully healthy Panthers team will absolutely challenge if not still be the favorite to win.  More perspective:  look at the Colts.  They started 0-2, and now they're where we're at.  How do you think their fanbase feels in comparison?  

 

Here's a fun game:

 

1. Name a team.

2. Name 2 of their best defenders.

3. Take them off the field.

4. Name 4 of their RBs.

5. Take them off the field.

6. Would they be at the top of their division?

 

If you answered yes, go watch 20 years of football, and try again.

I always watched this video to get ready for Saints games.  If you'd have told me these two players would be facing each other on the opposite end of the spectrum I would have called you crazy, and probably would have wanted to avoid that situation at all costs.  But here it is.  Love you Smitty.  Hope you lose Sunday.  Bad.

What about remembering up to Saturday September 6th when all their trash fans were hear bashing "Luke Weakly" and praising the almighty Lavonte David/Josh McCown superstar team?  

 

I hope we beat them by 4000.

 

Anyone who calls ATL not classy by "running it up," this isn't college.  You're paid to play.  If you don't want someone to high-step, or celebrate, or dance on your field, or beat you by 50, then don't effin let them.
