Default what is wrong with us!?!

i know this question is what everyone has been asking themselves ever since the broncos game. i wish i could tell you but all i can do is speculate and give my opinions, if u want to give some please dont give more than 5:

1. we went from a 2 TE set to a 3 WR set, for no reason.

2. we picked up a guy named najeh

3. we are starting clark haggans over a 1st round pick

4. we are not deep at any position besides linebacker

5.we allowed john kuhn to sign with GB

besides for #5, these are pretty big reasons why our O and D arent as good as what they need to be, our D could be better when it comes to pressure and pass defense.

Maybe you haven't heard, but we have a top 10 offense and the #1 defense in the NFL in 3 of the 4 major categories - including pass defense. The only major category they aren't ranked #1 in - rush defense - they are ranked #2. They are also 4th in the NFL in sacks.

And you say they aren't as good as they need to be (with the obvious exception being the truly offensive line)? What the hell have we been watching this season then?

this is just a response to your reasons
1. its called mixing up the offense
2. did we just get him recently? thought he was producing well
3. clark haggans has been starting several years and is BETTER than right now
4. i didnt think we were deep at any postions
5. he has a couple good plays in a game and he is the answer to all of our problems?

You know, when he mentioned John Kuhn, I shouldn't have even bothered to respond. Can someone please explain to me this fascination with this guy? What's he done? OK, so he opened up a hole last night for Ryan Grant's TD. That makes him a stud all of a sudden? Good grief!

1. Spaeth is a rookie and got hurt and then Tuman got hurt - you work with what you have, not with what you want

2. We got Najah last year and LB, TE & a punter were regarded as a bigger priority this past draft (+ OL still is) - if Kuhn was so good why did he not play in 2006?

3. Timmons was hurt all preseason & Haggans is playing better

4. Injuries are a bitch and the salary cap does not make it real easy to recreate the 70s Steelers

5. See #2 - in addition, Kuhn got picked up as a RB by a team with one of the worst running offenses in the league and threw a block last night - big whoop - who should have been cut instead?

Did you think in July this team would be 8-3 and leading the AFC North? Exactly what realistic expectations did you have for a team with a new HC going into the season.

I am not one to break out the black & gold pom-poms, but the idea of some posters that this team is a failure because it is not 11-0 and brimming with SB quality talent across the board is becoming laughable

I couldn't agree more. People look at the 3 losses more then they look at the fact that we swept the browns and have already beat the bengals and ravens once. All and all things are going better then expected this year

Did people actually think Najeh was going to take over FWP's job. He is talented with a lack of heart, but in recent weeks I have read posts where people want his playing time increased. They think FWP overused and not producing. 2 words Offensive Line. Najeh should be expected to do no more than spell Willie when he is spent. Contrary to somes beliefs he is not the short yardage back we lost with Jerome. I would kill to have Brandon Jacobs, but no one like that is available and in the draft next year we have other priorities #1 being the o-line.kuhn proved last night that even the blind squirrel will occasionally get the nut. One play and u guys are bitching. We had no room for a third string FB. We lost on the last second of the game on the road in Denver, and the Jets dominated our lines and we still only lost in OT. Like others stated we are 8-3 and a couple of plays away from 10-1. The glass is definitely half full.

Yes we are, but we only have a one game lead. Cleveland is a better team than they ever were, and they're playing the Cards; it's a good bet they'll win, so we have to keep up. This game against Cincy is important. Not only do we need the win to insure staying in 1st, but I think we need to show we can move the ball and put some points on the board.
I'd like to see them dominate a game like they did against the Ravens.
