Dont think i have ever seen a board poll so evenly split!
we started 3-0, we lost a bunch of games to below average teams in which we should have won, such as home vs buffalo, home vs balt ( they looked nothing like the defending superbowl champs when we played them, and still do not, so i dont care if they go on another magical run and somehow win superbowl again, that loss is still totally unacceptable), in tampa, and yes i know maybe they are not as bad as there 0-8 start indicated, but nonetheless, its not a game a good team should lose, carolina, we ****ing dominated them in the 1st half, and we got shutout in the 2nd half. unacceptable.
bottom line is this. its great to have faith in the team and all, and believe that things are headed in the right direction this time, and maybe this time is different, but until its actually proven to be different, its not. if this team loses today to a depleted pats team in our building, why should i or any fin fans have confidence that next year we will topple them? the pats have been as banged up as they have in a while this year, i am sure belichick and co will make the changes needed in offseason to get stronger, and if we cant beat a pats team without gronk and 2 wrs, and a depleted defense, its hard to believe this is not the same team that will give us moments of excitement and hope, but at the end of the day, crush us again.
that being said, i do expect to win today and this conversation should be a moot point unless we lose to buffalo or the jets, but thats for a different day.
go out and ****ing do what a good team is supposed to do in there building with season on line. dominate both sides of the ball, and beat up a depleted team.
