and maybe not for the reason you might think. It is evident that we are not an elite team. We are in that mediocre AFC malaise with the jets, bills, Raiders, Bengals, Chargers, Titans, and probably the colts. While the playoffs an a 500 or better record are still a real possibility the bigger thing is showing that we are going in the right direction. If Philbin can't motivate this team to come out hard on Thursday night against the Bills, then we have either a bigger problem players or coaches on this team than we could have imagined. And we have a lot more rebuilding to do than we thought just a couple of weeks ago.
You're right about that............if this team gets beat up again..........then 6-10 or worse is a real possibility. Then we're back to the same discussion............do we have the right coach, the right GM or the right QB.
