Default Re: On the plus side...for people who don't want to mope around.

well on a positive note, we put up a lot of points on the road. We were missing numerous starters, including our 2 best players on D. Still no running game, but no Mendy either. That could get better when he returns. Line could improve as well when DeCastro returns.

More positives. Usually, best record doesn't take the Super Bowl. Here are the lastest SB champs regular season records. Better to be playing good in December and healthy than to be racking up wins early.
Just looking at the bright side.

Giants-9-7
Packers-10-6
Saints-13-3
Steelers-12-4
Giants-10-6
Colts-12-4
Steelers-11-5

So in recent history, the SB champ is just as likely to be 9-7 as 13-3, or just as likely to be 10-6 as 12-4. 11-5 would be the average record of these winners and no team in the last 7 years has won the SB with less than 3 losses. I think we're just trying to make sure we get to 3 losses and then we'll start playing.
