Going into the season we all thought a team that was 10-6 and barely losing to the eventual SB champs would be poised to have another solid season with all the solid FA acquisitions. It's safe to say the majority of BGN thought this team was at WORST an 11-5 team with 12-4 not unlikely, and 13-3 a real possibility.
We beat the lowly Rams, who don't really appear to have turned any corners as they appear to be another 1-2 years about still.
We lost to the Falcons, who we probably should've beat by 10-14 points, but in hindsight, this is the same Falcons team who got stomped by what appears to be a mediocre Bears team and outplayed by an even more mediocre young Buccaneers team.
As Jason mentioned, the problem is, this team is like a broken record. The same exact mistakes, the same players at fault, the same exact reoccuring themes in each in every game. Poor o-line play, bad LB play, mediocre S play. The run defense, the defense that lets up a TD when it needs a stop. Vic getting crushed every play, Vick holding onto the ball too long, Vick fumbling (not all his fault). There appear to be no fixes even though the level of competition has been very poor.
Rant over....where do you see this team now that they have shown very little in terms as being a consistent team in all facets of the game...
I hope I'm wrong but my brain is saying 9-7
