    LightningDawg58 got a reaction from Slimm in NFC Standings   
    Im going to get blasted for this, Im sure but, just take a look at the standings: https://www.nfl.com/standings/
     
    Seattle, Green Bay, and Chicago are the only undefeateds, and we helped Chicago a lot with that.
    There are only 7 total winning records, 9 losing ones, and 4 winless teams.
    In our division, we are last but just 1 game out of 2nd place right now...
    Nobody wants to hear this, but it's still very early, and a lot of teams are off to bad/slow starts. We are not out of this thing yet.
    We clearly gave away 2 big losses, but arent getting blown out like some of the other struggling teams as our point diff has us around 11th right now.
    Let's start with beating Green Bay. And lets take care of business in our division.
    If we figure this thing out, who knows what can happen.
    Here is to hoping, what else do we have to lose right?

    If, hypothetically, we make it to the playoffs.
    That means DQ has taken 3 of 6 teams to the playoffs in his tenure, and his worst record ever is 7-9.
    Performance matters, and its still early. I doubt he lasts another bad loss or two. But if we do turn it around and start winning, then he earned his keep as far as Im concerned.
    Im just here to see it through. Whatever happens, happens.

    Look at some of the scores around league and get back to me about how much we stink. Our defense is trash, yes, but we really are too talented overall to continue this slide.
    Anyways, I been dying for football for too long to pack it up now. I'll keep watching whenever possible at least until there is no longer a chance.
    But again its early, and I dont see an NFC team that looks that scary. Seattle is on a mission it appears, and we shall find out soon enough about Green Bay. 0-4 will be tough to bounce back from. So lets not let it get there.
    Im not proud of this mess either, but Im not broken. There is always tomorrow. This crap is laughable, and that weirdly makes it feel better somehow.
    At least it's entertaining

    Defense can't give up a lead if the offense can control the ball down the stretch.
    Matt's the best QB we've ever had, I don't think its too much to expect him to sustain a couple of drives to end games, especially when you know your defense is suspect.
    Everybody has a role in what's happening. Everyone. Including Matty can't "Ice" the game. He would agree as well.
    At some point we have got to stop sprinting to defend him  as if he is some helpless kid. Matt is a 13 year NFL vet, he can and should take the heat too as THE leader of this team. QB's get praise for winning and shoulder blame for losing. Thats why they get paid the big bucks while the majority of his defense makes rations. 
     
    Cut him, no. Hold him accountable, you dang right.

    If you cant handle the franchise QB getting criticized then maybe you aint built for this. It comes with the territory, period.
    Lebron James has haters, Vick had haters, MJ, Kobe, Mohammed Ali, **** I hate on Tom Brady all the time, and we all crap on Brees any chance we can get.
    In the end, my opinion dont mean ish, neither does anyone else's. Thats just what people do. The only players that dont get criticized  are the ones that arent worth talking about.
    Its no reason to get all tight about it. Its a high profile position and under a microscope. Scrutiny comes with the job.

    Hmmm, sounds like something that should have been considered before we spent and 2nd and 3rd round pick to trade up for him.
    Maybe he could be more pro ready if we wanted him so so bad.

    Reading this board you would never know if we were winning or losing. 
    I mean you would probably just think we were losing.
    Its like being in an abusive relationship for some fans. I hope you all get treatment for your emotional scars.
     
    I get upset too when we play like crap. But I also enjoy all of the good times I can, because they arent promised. You cant wait for x date or x event to take place to feel safe to be happy, just live in the now.

    Allen, smartest defender and team captain.
    Takk, has been unblockable up this until injury
    Foye, single handedly forced what, like 3 fumbles today?
    Those are big losses. The only thing worse would be Grady or Debo.

    Defense has provided 3 TOs, 1 turnover on downs, and a forced punt. 
     
    Offense has not capitalized as much as they should have, but hopefully its enough. They still are not operating at full throttle yet.
