    Keep season-opening losses in perspective

    By Boomer Esiason

    (Sept. 14, 2005) -- A couple of thoughts from Week 1:

    First, it's not time to panic if your team got beat on opening weekend -- especially if you are the Jets, Broncos or Vikings. There are high hopes for each of these three teams and I'm sure both players and coaches are feeling the sting of opening day losses. Whether it was because of turnovers or poor run defenses, all three teams were delivered a violent wake-up call.

    In the cases of the Jets and Broncos, at least theirs were delivered on the road and not in front of their home fans. As for the Vikings, things probably are pretty testy around their offices. I'm sure fans and media alike are blaming the coaches first and the quarterback second. Unfortunately, it's the media-driven world in which we live. In our society it has become "the blame game."

    I would expect each of these teams to come out flying this weekend, especially the Broncos and the Jets as they play in front of their home fans. For the Vikings, it's probably better for them they are on the road in Cincinnati. Remember, it was the Patriots only a few years ago that could do no right on Kickoff Weekend in Buffalo and then miraculously turned it around to win their second of three Super Bowl titles. The key is not to overreact, but rather teach and learn from what went wrong.

    Because there are only 16 games and every game carries so much weight, players and coaches are always fighting the negative from outside sources. The coaches must always remain a strong, positive influence when dealing with those distractions because they lead to counterproductive insecurities. Each NFL coach is trying so hard to motivate and galvanize his team to play as one cohesive unit. It is vital that the coach does everything in his power to alleviate the pressure and tell his players to move on.

    Finally, someone telling us what we already know.

    Thanks for the article. It is nice someone(media related) finally wrote something that isn't causing a firestorm of panic.

    Summary of article:

    Chill, Only Week One, Bounce Back, Don't be so Negative, Support your team, Be a Team, Win! It isn't the end of the world.

    I almost didn't read it cause Boomer's name was attached to it. He can be a real bonehead sometimes. This time he is right on.
