Default it has only began....

as we have the most difficult schedule without a doubt for the next 4 weeks, with 3 of 4 on the road. all 4 against potential playoff teams (@pats, cowboys, @ravens , @titans). would want to win more obviously, but if we win 2 out of the next 4, i would not complain. its time for our first true test of the season starting in new england!

With the way the Oline plays against good Dline I could easily see them losing those games despite a heroic effort from the D.

Someone has to burst the Titan Bubble.......

But, if it was only two out of the four, the Ratbirds and Pats (obviously), but I'd sure like that Cowboy scalp as well. 11-4 sounds mighty good! 12-3 sounds even better!

F**K it....let's just go for 4 straight wins........in for a penny, in for a pound!

And we could very well go 4-0 in that stretch. None of those teams are superior. Our Defense is dominating and our offense is starting to gel and while the game was against the bungals our O-line gave some good protection. If Ben can play the next four weeks like he did the last two games, then we'll be in for some fun times!!!

i always look for a win, but it'll be tough these next few weeks for sure. the o-line needs to step up big time, tonight will give them confidence but i think the bungs d made them look better than they are, its gonna be a lot tougher against the likes of the patriots and titans. the ten day break will be good for the guys, hopefully willie heals up and we get a lot of preparation for ne.

NONE of those teams are superior? I take that to mean you are not that impressed with the Titans? I am. They have a terrific D. Kerry Collins is doing everything they ask of him, and they have a good running game with Johnson and White. Even if we manage to shut down the running game( like we did against the Giants), Collins has proved he can beat ya through the air. Look at the problems we had running the ball against the Bengals, and their defense isn't exactly near the top, how do you think we are going to fair going up against the Titans D????

I don't think the Patriots are a superior team this year, but the Steelers always seem to have trouble against them, esp. in Foxboro.


GO STEELERS!!!

The D is playing like no other. If Big Ben can keep the turnovers to a minimum, we can go 3-4 in the next four games.

I've been impressed with the Titans, they play the game like we do - solid but not spectacular O, smothering D. Plus even when they're playing badly, they seem to find ways to win. That's the toughest game of the 4. The other three are very winnable I think. - Pats in Foxboro can't be taken lightly, but when Cassel's had the kitchen sink thrown at him, he's looked shaky and he hasn't faced a D of our standard yet. The Fravens are starting to falter (plus we win that game it's all but our division then) and The Cowboys in the cold at our place, I think we'll beat them. I'd take 2-2 but I think 3-1 is a very real possibility if we start to move the sticks and cut down on the dumb penalties.
