    As bad he may look, he's still got the job done against an offense who can only score field goals.

    So he will be fine when he plays the Titans.

    I will be honest. As bad as our offense has been; I do not see us beating the Texans this year. They killed us the 1st game.

    We usually split w/ the Jags every year & we won the 1st game. They are making plays now. I will be shocked if we beat them.

    The Colts game was a pretty good game for us..... However, the week after we beat them thoroughly; our HC decided it was best to go completely away from that kind of game plan. So I fully expect us to try our best to run head long into 8-10 men boxes. Then only pass on 3rd & long when we are in obvious passing situations. That is more of the Mularkey way. The way that puts us in very close, hard to win games. I do not have faith in this coaching staff to do the right thing; to get the win.

    Can we beat these teams w/ the talent we have?? Honestly, yes we absolutely can. I believe what a reporter said: We have the pieces in place to be an offensive juggernaut. (Yeah, he is a ****** reporter; but he is right about that.) I also believe that we cannot count on this staff to utilize that talent well enough to win..... I hate the fact that we have all this young talent on our roster; and it is going to waste!
    GoT high fives this.

    We have a very good Oline. We have a great QB that I believe is good enough to carry the team as a Franchise QB. He has proven in games that he can win from the pocket & with his legs; if the coaching staff plans ways for it to happen. We finally have a WR (Davis) that I think can be a true WR1. A good slot WR in Taylor, and a very good WR2 in Matthews. We have one of the best TEs in the league; no question IMO. This offense should be plain DOMINANT!

    Our defense still needs a lot of work IMO. The Dline is not achieving what it can. Casey is not the man he was this year. DeQaun Jones is what he is; average. We do not have a good NT right now. Our OLBers are aging; but still are not doing what they can do... Rak had 10 sacks last year. Morgan had 9 sacks. Woodyard is playing above his norm. He has been very good this year IMO. Williamson on the other hand is playing below his norm; which was below average IMO. Jackson is going to be a solid CB. Not a super star; but not a liability, which is an improvement in our secondary. Byard is a special player in the making..... Ryan is not great; and is not playing up to his pay rate IMO. I wish he was playing much better. I am not saying he is not playing adequate. He is playing adequate. I just think he should be playing better than adequate for what he is making.

    Long story shorter.... We need to invest A LOT in the defense VERY SOON. This off season should be Defense, Defense, Defense!!!! We should invest in defense in FA & the draft. Hopefully invest better than we did this year. Not bottom of the barrel guys; real defensive play makers. I know that's asking for a lot from this team........
