a light at the end of the tunnel?
« on: October 30, 2018, 05:39:52 AM »
It was a tough loss; but a great game to watch.  But for the fumble, we could of given the Rams there first defeat.  Unfortunately, could of or should of don' t make wins.  A moral victory is still not a "W".  The defense played hard and well against an elite offense.  The offense, at times, was great; but it was streaky.  McCarthy still doesn't understand how to balance the run and the pass to confuse and thwart defenses.  The offense has to play at all times like they are down by 6 in the fourth quarter.  Simply put, score early and often and put the other team on its heels instead of us.  In the remaining games there are only two "elite" teams, the Patriots and Vikings.  Both are beatable; but the outcome will depend on our defense playing as it did Sunday and our offense has to step up the tempo throughout the game.  As for the rest of the schedule, we can win them easily if the team doesn't get complacent.  With a record of 10-5-1, at worst, we should be a wild card team and with one additional win, we would win the North.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel; but the defense has to continue its play and the offense needs to step it up.  Easier said than done, but I am not writing this season off yet.

7-2 to finish the season with the teams we are facing is a tall order.  My concern is the light at the end of the tunnel is a train.
