    Or they will drop the first 2 games again cause they aren't ready..

    Everyone knows they lost the first 2 games because of Tjack, has nothing to do with the team not being ready.

    well.. first year we had hard workouts... we came out strong, winning 4 of our first 6, then only won 2 out of 10 on the rest of season
    last year we has lighter workouts, we came out flat, but finished strong, making the playoffs.
    How many times have we seen the vikigns come out strong (6-0, 5-1) only to falter at the end of the season?
    too many times.
    I'd rather not push the players too hard during the offseason, and peak at the right point, than start out 4-0 and finish 8-8

    You know AD is going harder than any practice Chilly would offer.

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Yea right, like one player is gonna loose us a game.
    Sure the offense had its issues but the defense had thiers as well even though you guys won't admit it.

    Defense got tired in the Colts game.
    Defense didn't work together in the GB game (No Fricken Sacks).
    Secondary took bad angles on tackles etc etc etc.

    Your second paragraph makes ridiculous claims.

    1. I have rewatched the Colts game and fatigue had nothing to do with that loss.
    2. You, the man who says sacks cannot be used to judge a DE's performance, are now (for the second time) using sacks to claim that the D did not work together in the GB game. This is why I and a couple of others call you a flip-flopper.
    3. Our secondary is a very good tackling bunch. They missed about 3 tackles in those first 3 games which led to big plays. Overall though they were solid.

    If you are looking for evidence that the team wasn't ready come week 1, that's fine, but don't make up stuff when you can't find any. The Defense came out of the gates playing well, and in rhythm. Jared Allen, one player, had a slow start, and Tyrell Johnson clearly wasn't ready for a starting role. Otherwise, that D was great.

    The Offense was a different story. A lack of rhythm between TJ and Berrian his WRs was evident (some would blame this on preseason injuries) and some also argue that the scheme was not complex enough to make for an effective offense in week 1. So I agree with these claims? Not necessarily, but at least they aren't made up out of thin air.

    Ahhhh, the "Your a Flip Flopper" defense.
    LOL.

    Explain to me why the defense shut the colts down in the first half (0 Points) and then didn't in the second half (18 Points)?

    Maybe it had something to do with a 40 yard drive being the longest in the first half but in the second half we saw 80 and 62 yards.......

    Thin air my ass....... :

    Since Tice or really, "How Many"?
    well, once after Tice... we starter 2-0, went 4-2, then won 2 of our last 10.
    however I'm sure we're all sick of us starting out strong, and then falling a game short of playoffs.
    If they can start out strong and stay strong, then thats the best, but if it were that easy, we'd have done it already.
