Second half of season concerns:

As others have said, 3rd down conversions against D are a big concern - hopefully Farrior's injury is not more serious than anticipated and Haggans can return to pre-injury form to step up pass rush pressure.

Winning these next 2 games and the Bengals rematch (crucial for tiebreakers)

Winning the division and getting a home playoff game (with or without a bye) - I do not believe a team has ever won three road games in the playoffs to make it to the Super Bowl.

Ravens won 2 on the road - they beat Denver at home (back when 1 of the wildcards got a home game) then beat Tennessee and Oakland on the road

I think we all are concerned with the number of injuries we have had so far this season, and I am also concerned with the O-line... run-blocking is not bad, but it has been better. Pass-protection has been pretty bad, and it will need to get better with Ben running on two bad wheels.

1. Our secondary worries me, no sooner we brag about them, the A.Wright makes them look terrible.
2. 3rd defense needs some work.
3. How about a consistant pass rush. Keep coming
4. INJURIES, this is huge.

1. Ben staying healthy... It's very easy to see in the two games he's been out that our offence struggles without him.
2. The defence doesn't seem as dominant as last year... Don't really know why because it's basically the same personel.
3. Injuries to the rest of the team.

Your biggest concern should be that your star quaterback and the anchor of your franchise had surgery on his knee, no matter how minor the surgery is any time you mess with a big guys knees he will never be 100% again...and if he doesnt rehab it properly it will only get worse...(see jamal lewis)

I seem to remember that the browms once broke bradshaws neck and put him on the road to retirement.... so I don't think we'll worry about him too much. Maybe you should worry about your overconfidence in an overated team bound to get upset at home..on national televsion by a team that got beat by the texans..
