I have a really good feeling about our chances in the playoffs go falcons.

What’s wrong with Dom Davis? I must have missed his injury.

Last night’s announcer said Konz wasn’t strong enough to play the guard position against Suh. Will some of you more knowledgeable people tell me what you need at all the OL positions? Hawley also plays guard/center. Is he strong enough or have we wasted 2 draft picks?

I guess inactives meant practice squad instead of injured for Dom Davis.

How can a football nation of millions see that Turner needs to be benched but the men watching the film over and over and making the decisions cannot? Don’t the stats alone tell the tale? How long can they blame Turner’s fecklessness on the offensive line when Ryan performs so well with the same OL? Has Blank weighed in on this? Mike Smith, to me, has always had a tendency to over-think the obvious. Yes, we’re 13-2, but this continual sacrificing of downs and sitting on leads will kill them in the playoffs.
