I'll take 6-2 at the bye the way we are positioned. I still those two eggs will haunt us.

On the other hand, as it turns out we will play 2, maybe 3, teams who finish with a winning record this year.

We really should end-up 13-3 with home field. But 12-4 (should be a cakewalk with our schedule) will probably get it done, even if we lose to NE.

Sorry KC I'm not seeing that. He might be close to Ike Taylor level. Although Ike played the run better. JMO


Against the run and tacking he may prove to be a major liability.


In this era of football, that's what the front 7 is for. A shutdown CB is a rare bird, especially when you rarely draft higher than 20.

Burns is who I thought he was.

The guy I was wrong about is Joe Haden. He got his mojo back.




absolute larceny to get him for free from the stains

I actually thought Haden would be worse than Cockrell because Haden was bad 2 years...Now I think without Joe Haden, we might be 4-4.

When we use the whole field, we look like an NFL offense and what everyone expected the offense to be.....Ben gets multiple choices of easier throws and everyone looks better (even AB, as great as he is).

There is a lot to be excited about with this young D. Ben missed some guys tonight but also had some bad drops. Let's not forget Eli should have had a TD. Brown's OPI was a ticky tacky call which should have been a TD. We left a lot of plays out there.

What happens when we don't start leaving plays out there? This offense really has so much potential but they have to execute better and Haley's turtles have to stop.

The Eli drop isn't on Ben....but missing DHB sure was.

Eli is not making the most of his opportunities. Juju is filling the Bryant/Rodgers vacuum well.

But wasn't the DHB miss the same drive that ended with a TD to AB, overturned for bullshit OPI?

Not sure what the record would be but he moved the defense from good to 2017 elite

I wonder if they'll use the bye to get Hunter up to speed. JuJu replaces Eli, Hunter replaces Bryant. I'd think about shopping Eli and signing Ayers back.
