    Gary, you said what needed to be said. Time to put some pressure on Meathead as he did screw up some of this? Where’s our high priced OG or that high priced DL that also foolishly cost us a 4th round pick; and while I’m at it, Kenny Bell, Vitale, Griffin,Glennon? Yes I believe the GM has some growing up to do in this business.

    Agree, if can’t beat the Rams At home then we can start thinking about next years draft after 3 weeks as usual…..

    Usually I’m a bit of a downer after a loss, but this article is down right glass 99% empty. We’re 2 games into the year. We played both on the road. We beat a decent ATL team (that just went into OAK and won) in their own house. And yes, we lost (the score is more a reflection of the turnover plays – clearly too many – than the but-kicking that is suggested) on the road to a team desperate to avoid an 0-2 home game start to their season…a season in which many pundits have them as Super Bowl favorites.

    Was it bad – yes. Is the sky falling – no.

    My golly some people sure go the way the wind is blowing. Last week everything was great. This week everything sucks. East End Boy has it right. It’s but one loss to a team no one gave us much of a chance to defeat. OK we didn’t win. Big Whoop. The score was lopsided because the Bucs have gone two games now without getting a turnover and we have given up 6. Turnovers are the great equalizer and often distort the score. We got the Cardinals best shot after they were energized by the first INT that should have been a TD if # 13 made a better effort.

    This game was reminiscent of the Titans game last season when it just snowballed. Let’s see how our team reacts before we stat seeking Mel Kiper’s Big Board.
