I had us at about 4 wins before the season started. I figured we’d play hard enough to beat some bad teams and maybe get lucky against a decent team.
Four weeks in we are absolutely decimated by injuries, and none of these guys are going to be rushing back to the field. I’m particularly concerned about our offensive line depth with Ragnow, Decker and Sewell all banged up. What a nightmare…
0-17 is unfortunately in play. Unlikely, but possible. That would be a horrible way to start off the Holmes / Patricia era, and I would be devastated if it happens.
Not going to happen. It takes bad players, bad coaching, and bad luck to make a winless season possible. We’ve had a lot of injuries, sure, but I don’t think our players are that bad- I’ll take Goff over Orvlosky any day- our coaching is good, and well luck… we’ll see.
Nobody is just out there collecting paychecks… we got rid of Collins already. So the players left are young and hungry. They’ll get their wins.
I still think we win a couple games. If I was betting I’d say 3-14 is a good bet. But, ultimately it doesn’t matter, we are gonna finish last in the north and pick top 3 in the draft, which in many ways was expected. The injuries have been brutal but at least they are happening in a year we had no real shot at winning more than 5 games if they all stayed healthy.
Before the season started I figured 2 or 3, maayybe 4 wins. I don’t really think so now. I thought they would beat Cinci-not so sure, even doubtful now. I thought the Eagles would be a win-not so sure now. And I thought Atlanta would be a win… again-not so sure. Can’t blame any one, two or three players. Most of them are just overwhelmed. The beginning of a rebuild, average to below average players, injuries, tough schedule….not looking good. They have a LONG way to go and it’s going to take a few years (2 or 3)for them to even be competitive. But on the bright side, draft picks will help. Picking high and picking often. I’ve seen this movie before. A few times.
I fell like we have more injured players right now than other teams, but no actual data to support that. Whatever the case, the WRs already suck, so we definitely can’t afford anymore hits to that group
