    True, I was excited but I had a feeling that it wasn't going to last long. Too good to be true... Since when in this era do we have a dependable defense? Thats a joke! :x

    My question is when are Linehan and Haslett going to realize that our defense is weak? IMO we need to try and make the oppositon 1 dimensional. While playing the Chiefs why not stack the box and take away the run? Challenge the opposing offense to beat us while taking them out of their bread and butter plays. It's getting ridiculous.

    Turnovers cost us the game yesterday, but it would be a little harsh to blame our recent poor form on the offense. Other than the turnovers, which haven't been that many bar the Chiefs game, they've been pretty good.

    The defense is a big problem for us. At the start of the season they were playing like last year's D, only making turnovers. Now they're playing like last year's D WITHOUT making turnovers!

    Oh, it's not just this game.

    Seattle -
    Kevin Curtis fumbled a kickoff return that changed the look of the game.

    San Diego -
    The big one is the Stephen Davis fumble.

    Torry Holt also fumbles, and we're just lucky that Richie manages to fall on it.

    Shaun McDonald also fumbled and was fortunate that it went out of bounds.

    Kansas City -
    Marc Bulger loses one while getting sacked.

    Steven Jackson fumbles on a run.

    Dane Looker fumbles, this time on a Fair Catch as a punt returner.

    It's frustrating that our offense can be so good except the turnovers. That's becoming a pretty significant caveat now, though. Has any player on our team who has had possession of the ball at some point during the last three games not fumbled over that period?

    It's Haslett's fault, he brought the bad juju from New Orleans with him.

    Are you saying NO is always bad? Because right now they're good. And Jim Haslett was great back in the Pittsburgh days, so I'm not so sure what you're talking about.

    I know I know you were kidding lol
