    Disagree...losing to NFC is not the end. Winning Thursday will be tough, but that game is far more critical than this one. I for one am not willing to just concede that game...

    Wrong we are average. NFL purgatory
    Very difficult to get beyond that without superior coaching and an upper echelon QB

    What I have seen from Osweiler in the last two games means that I have to completely reevaluate him from scratch. This is not the same man I saw throwing worm burners in Houston or looking like he was trapped in the second dimension (like General Zod) when he was in Denver.

    He looks a hell of a lot better, so I'm going to have to judge him on what I'm seeing right now, which is a guy who looks like a competent NFL quarterback, rather than someone who should be wearing a paper hat at a drive through.

    I agree to a point. He does look better in Miami then what he has looked anywhere else. That said, he has no speed or urgency when down and needing to manage the clock. That has not changed....yet at least.

    If the defense keeps playing the way they did today and last week. This team is not going to win many more games. Just the reality of things. Especially if Wilson and Stills are out a signigicant amount of time. The offense isn't at the point where they can score 30+ points a game which is what they will need to do if Burke and that defense don't get their heads out of their collective asses.

    Detroit at home was probably one of more favorable matchups they are going to face this season. Losing that game will be extremly costly to the teams playoff chances. However like I mentioned , if the defense doesn't wake up this team will be lucky to win another game.

    Problem is this...Gase treats games like chess matches...he called certain looks to see how teams react so he can give the same look and do something different later in the game...we have scored like 60 points in the 4th quarter a lone this year...

    I agree with this. Although that strategic approach has caused to us to behind at critical times. We need to score points earlier in the game. Our inability to put up points in the first half is really hurting this team

    What? An offense that is scoring 21pts a game to you is apparently a great offense. If we're averaging less than 24-25ppg we're still mediocre.

    I am not sure I agree with your analysis, but I will stipulate the point to consider your premise This strategy is not a loosing proposition by itself. The issue is the offensive line was dominated during the first half. This means exploratory plays are not gaining enough yards to put the offense ahead of the sticks. It is interesting conversation.

    Team just cannot win "hump" games. Games that get them over the hump. Whether that is a division rival game, game that puts them in the playoffs or a must win vs. can't lose game. They just continually end up on the losing end.

    Been ongoing for what seems like a decade plus.

    They have flashes....
    They show heart....
    They can win....

    They just cannot win must win games. Not that today was must win but going to Houston isn't a pretty picture right now.

    Average. Continually average. That is this team. 8-8. 7-9. 9-7. There is always the possibility of getting into the playoffs at 9-7....it just seems like this team cannot push the car over that hump game. Terrible situation IMO. Not sure how or when that gridlock is broken. Personally I don't have a lot of confidence. A decade plus of crap will do that.
