    Time for lowering expectations, but we are in right track

    Folks, is time to get back to the starting point at the beginning of the season, high expectations are natural, but we have to realize that we are not ready to compete right now, I can see that while the season progress, some of us try to predict harder ways to be in playoffs, that is almost impossible and it could be devastating if we keep putting energy on this, let us move on and enjoy what our team is accomplishing.

    This season our team was mainly set to conform a core of people to start with, so, where we are right now.


    1. First of all, we have good coaches, maybe the only question mark is Coyle, not only because D has had ups and downs, but mainly because he has no previous proved experience as DC; contrary to our offensive side; they also have had ups and downs, but both Sherman and Phibin have proven experience with success in the NFL.
    2. We have a QB, is not as special as we'd like to, but so far is good enough to take us all the way if he is supported with a good cast of players offensively and defensively.
    3. On ST, we are complete, nothing need to be added here. Check.
    4. On Offense, we need a couple of guys on OL, most important than everything, LT or RG and a Guard, we need dominant players up front, a #1 receiver and a TE that can block and take strides down the field not only short passes.
    5. On Defense, a couple of corners, a free safety (a ballhawk) and a dominant passrusher.

    So far, we need 7 to 8 players away to be a very good team, I did not included a RB because, we had success running while our OL was dominant, we need to fix that I think.

    To finish my comment, we have 2 options, keep suffering while we see how our playoffs hopes are getting slim and harder to accomplish or feel good about how our team is being built with a good group of people, some of them very talented.

    LOL. Evidently you do not read many threads around here.

    I have said from the summer through today that this season is a process. I had us pegged as a 3 to 5 win team. It looked like I had to reassess those predictions. Maybe not. Unfortunately.

    I originally saw this team winning anywhere from 4-6 games. Realistically, they've obvious already won 4 games and could and should win at-least 2 more games! I agree with you entirely about our missing pieces. I also i'm in general agreement with you concerning coyle, my biggest reason for that is the COLTS game. I still can not believe nor forgive Coyle, despite Mr.Lucks incredible play on 3rd and forever. Theirs absolutely no way their offense should have converted all those 3rd and long plays! UNFORGIVABLE!

    The last two games have been brutal. Suddenly it seems like we have needs everywhere. But I agree with you. I think this coaching staff did a good job for almost half a season of hiding defiencies at wide receiver and in the secondary, while bringing along a rookie quarterback. The team has to make the right moves in the offseason to take another step forward and finding playmakers has to be the priority.

    I have not been blown away with any of our coaches. Play calling on both sides of the ball has been questionable. Add Ireland to the mix an I'm still not sure about our direction.

    We beat the Bengals who went to the playoffs last year, and were 4-3 with a halftime lead on our direct playoff competitor.

    Evidently you do not take a look around, not because you close your eyes on what you want to see, does not indicate that is not happening IMO, some people is or were talking about playoffs, including some "experts", facts are there.
