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...
AGREED! Just win thurs.
