Default Remember all the talk of last years Buffalo game being a thing of the past?

How is this not the same? How is our red zone offense improved?

We have two games left and thankfully we've been getting a lot of help today, so the playoffs seem to out there as dismal as it may seem. But wow, what a let down.

no, last years defense was historically bad. But yes, this one ranks right up there with the buffalo loss...or the raider loss from last year.

The offense is a shell of what is was last year.

That'll happen when you rip the centerpiece out of a young up and coming offense and replace it with garbage.

Just dissapointing all the way around, hurts almost as bad as the Buffalo loss.

We'll be extremly lucky to make the playoffs.

What centerpiece was ripped out? 25 picks with 2 games left in your 4th season is not an offensive centerpiece no matter how much you wish he was.

That's not a defense of Orton either, get off of Cutler's cock. He's proven to everyone this year he's no where near a franchise QB.

And your boy was shut out today (a PR has nothing to do with him) and his single digit QB rating was benched.

18.1 ppg, and 14.7 ppg without the Lions blowout. That 14.7 would put them barely ahead of the Browns right now.

It is the same. Can't argue. Starting to have real doubts about McD and gameplanning. I feel he must motivate well enough because the team doesn't quit but he isn't calling plays that put the players in the best position to succeed. Goddamn, score when you have a 1st and 2 for christ's sake. Call something creative that gets the TE free. Something. I see others team create mismatches in this situation all the time for east tds.

How did we do with Cutler do last year at home against Oakland? Yeah, that's what I thought.

The difference is Cutler had a huge hand in those losses. I dont put Orton on the main reason we lost to Colts (undefeated team) and the Raiders. If we lose the next two, who cares as it shows a lack of effort regardless of who is QB. Cutler still sucks.

the home field advantage has diminished due to the new stadium. Wonder is there is a way to make the place louder using advanced materials etc?

Yep, gotta be the stadium and the people who watch the game, it has nothing to do with the actual players playing the game.
