Four turnovers and dropped passes in this league is a prescription for a tough, long day. Last week we had breakdowns on special teams during the game and the defense broke down at the end of the game. This week we couldn’t hold onto the ball and turned it over. What’s all this add up to? A young team.
Yes, as much as we hate to admit it, it’s here. We’ve had a bunch of injuries and a bunch of new faces and we’re playing like a young team. Even Cutler was frustrated. I can feel his pain when you have guys dropping passes all over the field, it gets a little frustrating. He’s going to have take the heat, so he might as well get use to it. If you remember Elway did in ’83-’84, heck the writers were saying we should trade him…remember those days?
You know what I was thinking during the game? It was a little self-serving, but I was thinking maybe the team will be so mad at this defeat that it will revive a rivalry. There was enough trash talking, like the old days, that somebody might get a little upset about it. I guess we’ll see.
The Bolts got another win under their belts and LT looked like he was in mid-season form, so we have no other choice but to show some pride and finish the season with pride and win the remaining games. If we look at it that way as fans we’ll enjoy the remainder of the season a little more. If we can improve each week and get better and better we can look forward to the offseason activity to improve the team.
This season has had a lot of bright spots and I’m still pumped up about our prospects. I’m planning on going to the Minnesota game regardless of our record. I love this stuff. I can’t get enough of it and who knows what can happen over the remainder of the season with injuries on the Bolts??? The Bolts are a different team without a few players too. Not that I’d wish any player an injury. Actually, I’d love to see a season without ONE, but, well you know the chances of that.
Let’s rally behind these guys!!
