I think 2001 had something like 5 blowouts with two coming the last two weeks of the season. The team was young and needed a new coach to come in and spark something for them but were still competitive in damn near every loss.
So far this year we've already been blown out 4 times, we still have to play the buccs twice and the bills once, and our team seems to be getting worse as the season goes on. This time last year we were at least competitive.
06-12 are a blur for me, I was in college and drank a lot, but I do remember 2007 where Tommy Jone took out our boy and then the shitshow that was the 2009 season where Jake's career finally died, leading to 2010 where we were actively rooting for the team to fail so we could draft Andrew Luck #1 overall, which turned into Cam when Luck stayed in school.
This season has the feel of 09 with less hope. At least we had the legend of Matt Moore to keep us interested going into the next year, anticipating that maybe we found ourselves the next Tony Romo.
This year we have nothing.
Unless it’s a QB - I’m almost starting to believe there’s no reason to extend guys with big contracts - they either get hurt or their level of play slips because they got the bag and they’re set. No reason to go max effort any more.
Sign a bunch of red chip players and have a deep roster instead of prioritizing a couple expensive blue chip guys.
I’m not really sure how Chase Blackburn or Pat Meyer still have jobs.
Special Teams is horrible this season. Two blocked punts that have directly lead to losses. Were there any more?
Offensive line performing at an all time worst level.
