Part of the problem -- at least speaking for myself -- is that I don't know how to feel about this team. This is the first season that I can remember going into it thinking draft position from the very first game. Usually it is October or November of a lost season before I start thinking about draft positioning. Now, after seeing the team play well (albeit against an opponent that looked awful) and win, I don't know how to react to that win. I am not really pissed, but I am not happy about it either. There are young pieces that look good: Adams appears to be legit, WRs may be better than advertised, McCown played well, Roberts looked good across from Claiborne and the OL has been competent. These are all things (except McCown) that can carry over into next year if we can add the missing QB and one or two offensive weapons. But the win makes it a little less likely we get that QB.
I just don't know how to react right now -- so I have not posted much in the last 3 days. And it doesn't help that the football talk in general on this site has almost completely dried up. Unless you want to talk about the national anthem.
I feel you. I'm equally confused about how to assess a "win"... I do want to players to perform and develop... and hell, if the team comes together and shows us we're on our way, i guess that's great?... but we can't fuck around here. This HAS to be the year we get "the guy".. just has to be.
...and yea. the lack of relevant football talk is an issue. Seriously.
