    So tell me again how this team is different....

    We get a little national attention and wilt under the pressure.

    We have an above average D that usually excels and almost always plays well enough to win.

    We have an extremely inconsistent O led by nonsensical play calling and a QB who looks great at times but too often looks completely confused. We have undersized WRs who can't be trusted in the big moment (same goes for the TE's), and an OL that makes it too difficult on the QB. The QB had an opportunity to have a statement game at home and completely blew it.

    We usually beat the bad teams, but too often let them hang around and it occasionally bites us. We don't beat the good teams.

    Take the date stamp off this post and it could have been written in at least 8 different years since this website has been in existence. We somehow managed to win 9 games despite these flaws- I guess that's different but it's also at least partially due to having an extremely weak schedule.

    A year away on the O. Said it all year. They exceeded expectations already. They played the best team. Making it anything beyond that is just venting.

    They are 9-4 and in the driver's seat for a playoff spot in December.

    And what happens when they're 9-6 and need to beat the Jets to get in?

    I have a strong feeling that's what is going to happen and this board and fanbase will be in full meltdown mode going into week 17.

    But that's what happens when after last weekend you had people thinking that this team could win the East and get the number 1 seed, neither of which were ever realistic.

    A night game in Pittsburgh and a road game in NE.... I guess we're technically in the driver's seat but what have you seen from this team that actually make you think they can win those games? I've seen nothing. I've seen a team that barely beats bottom feeders and loses to above average teams.

    Re: So tell me again how this team is different....

    QB play has been holding back this team since Flutie was benched.

    And that’s why all these teams have looked the same since then.
    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    That's what I was saying all last week and took a ton of **** for it.

    I want to believe Allen is different, but every time I start to gain confidence in him, he has a game like today.

    It's not about me. It's about all the people saying that this team is different while the team looks exactly the same on the field.

    I would go back all the way to Kelly personally.

    Flutie was hot garbage even though the fanbase loved him.

    OpIV, what's the common denominator?

    QB1. We all want Allen to be different, but he hasn't been the difference maker thus far, as long as that's the case things will seem the same, although I do feel this team is way better coached that it has been the last two decades.

    Then they are 9-6 with a chance to get into the playoffs on the last week of the season...which has been the case exactly twice this century.

    That makes them different.

    That gives them a different record.

    On the field, they're still a team that struggles offensively, can't beat good teams and lets bad teams stick around to the point where they occasionally get burned. That's no different

    They lost by a TD to a team you said they had no chance of beating.

    Again, not about me.

    It's about whether or not this team is truly different from teams of the past, whether or not they've finally turned the corner. For the last 10 days, most of this board has been talking and acting as if they have, but the results on the field continue to be more of the same.

    It is about you. You couldn't stop all week saying how they had no chance to win this game. Now you're in here crying like a little baby because they didn't win the game.

    You don't see anything except the glass is half full or less.

    I see a team with a 5-1 road record. I see a team that has been in every game right up until the end, except for one. I see a team that wins when they actually play well, and loses when they play like ****. I don't see any game left on the schedule that isn't winnable. Or loseable for that matter, depending on how they show up.

    Do I expect them to win the Super Bowl? No, but unlike past years there aren't any games left right now where I have the feeling it is simply unwinnable because we are completely over-matched.

    Sure the 'see, ultimately I was right' money is on them losing eventually, but as we've been over several times before there's about a 1% chance in any given year that they could actually win it all, so betting on a 99% certainly isn't exactly a bold move on your part and never has been.

    I've said in the past you're such a huge whiner that you'd still be pissing and moaning even if the team is winning, I guess this season makes me right on that point.

    Dallas is under 500 now so that was a meaningless win now.
