    ...Another blow to another major player in the AFC race to the Lombardi. The Jags O-Line is in shambles. The Colts looked rustier than the Bolts and are without a healthy center Jeff Saturday. The Patsies are casualites of the Karma Police.
    This is it boys...let's put Sunday aside and drive this train throught that gaping hole of a window :bolt:

    As far as I'm concerned that window was shattered by Brenard Pollard, finally a Chief that's good for something.

    I can't see how we can't win the super bowl, there is practically no window at this point (meaning we are destined) all we need to do is work on the tackling

    The tackling will improve as guys who did not see much action in the preseason get up to speed. I caught highlights of some of the other games and it seemed the tackling overall was not very good. This will be righted, one way or another.

    Keep the faith all.

    ...It's not just the tackling. There seems to be a lack of physicality. Our front seven is getting pushed around and that's something I don't believe I've ever seen with a Charger defense. Sometimes intensity is a reflection of your defensive coach. We need some balls out, unleash the dogs, fury..like they do in Philly and Pittsburgh. I don't understand this soft mamby, pamby bullcrap :no:

    Me, either. Turnovers are great, but don't sit back & wait for them. Defenses are made to ATTACK, not sit back & wait.

    **** Teddy. Give Rivera a shot. :icon_twisted:

    Turnovers will come, but only if we attck. Just ask Peyton Manning.

    Cotrell needs to take his game plan from the Colts game last year and simply apply it to every game.

    Jesus.

    How about we WIN a game this season first before we all buy airline tickets and start booking rooms in Tampa?

    Other than LT, the starters need more exhibish action before the first game. I am a bit worried about Jamal's pins, since he was pushed around so much. If it's a lack of game shape he'll play better, but if his knees are weak than we better play someone else.

    I want this window thrown open by OUR play, not someone else's misfortunes.
