I wouldnt be too worried. A lot of these things can be due to timing, and we got REALLY unlucky on our schedule. The losses to the Saints, Pats, and now the Jets all happened at a time when each of those teams was in almost a "do or die" situation after an embarrasing loss or series of losses and we were just trying to remain on top. They all brought a fire and sense of determination and knew they needed to come out with the win, and we didn't, we were already "in a good place" heading into each of those games. I think the same can be said of our first game agaist the Falcons, at this point in the season Im not sure wed beat them, but in the first week when the d had something to prove and we knew we needed a w without Ben we brought that fire. Come playoff time, this won't be a problem.
I could see the Browns game giving us a challenge but I wouldnt start freaking out about nything or thinking this team cant get the job done when they need to. All our losses are to respectable teams and we lost some pretty badly-played games in 08 as well...
