    I don't believe they will win a SB, but I believe they can get better.

    I want the run game to show us something.

    I still do, I like most players on our roster. We are not that far from competing.
    Are we super bowl contenders? No, I never thought that, but did think we would
    be in the hunt for maybe a wildcard playoff. OL needs addressed OC may need addressed
    and of course the big one the QB needs addressed. We address these areas we will be competing again.

    We've seen the team play poorly and then go on runs before...... I still have faith here.

    I admit my faith is wavering. In the past MT and company has been able to rally and save the season from complete derailment, but this year there is an obstacle they haven't faced before:

    An over the hill QB.

    Mix that with all the other issues....:shrug:

    I don't do all the looking ahead at the schedule and counting wins and losses. I mean, I get some people get off on saying "I PREDICTED THAT" but it's not my thing.

    Do I believe? Like @Da Stellars says, I believe they can improve.

    I believe both the o-line and the run game showed improvement in this game, and I agree completely with Scribe's comment in the GDT that with a good QB we would have hung in that game.

    I try and look at things holistically and avoid single answers but for me the sooner we get Mason or Haskins in there the more we can understand where we are with the other issues. Even when we were moving the ball, I have little faith Ben can produce much.

    One of my best friends is a Packers fan and came over to watch the game. Didn’t even talk trash besides saying a few times how bad Ben looked. It’s like people have pity for how terrible we are. Sad times.

    Lot of Cowboy fans in my area. They are in all their glory at the moment. Sunday you see the Eagle jersey's of course but now the Cowboy fans are coming out of the woodwork. Last year Steeler jersey ruled since NFCE sucked and we were on fire. Now I was the only one I saw this past Sunday.

    Only thing I believe is that the children are the future.

    Always hated that song because no duh the children are the future. It's a fact no need to believe it.

    I still have faith. As was pointed out earlier, the opportunities are there for big plays. If Ben can start hitting those, we'll be in a much better position. I know it's a big if with how Ben has looked so far, but it's a long season.

    They are already tanking, not intentionally.

    This! Ben is cooked.

    It did yesterday. Najee went 15 for 62. How about 30 for 124? Also had a spectacular TD. 4.1 average. He is not doing it alone and I feel that the O Line sucks comments are a bit strong.

    I predicted 9-8. Why I did to give Tomlin another faux winning season missing the playoffs IDK. Still had a sliver of hope but that has fallen like Goal Line's train response.

    No one wants to see this happening. But their a lot of posters including myself that have seen the writing for a while and are not surprised. I will leave it at that...

    Exactly how I feel. That is what is so frustrating.

    To answer the question, no I don't believe in this team or this coaching staff right now. I read a post that someone who was at the game posted. He said that, in a case where you are losing, SOMEONE is trying to motivate the team - the coach, the QB? But they were all just screwing around on the sidelines or just doing nothing. Its pretty disheartening to think this team just doesn't give a ****.

    Winning a playoff game is improvement for a Tomlin led team. :facepalm:
    I'm ready to return to contender status. Clean house,like the Emporer did.

    I just don't see how ben plays better at this point. I think he's hit the proverbial "wall".

    There is a reason the 2 other first round QBs in Ben's class, Eli and Rivers, have already hung it up. Btw, they are both likely HOFers too.

    Ben has taken more abuse to his body throughout his career than both of those guys. They both realized they didn't have it anymore, for some reason Ben's just taking a lot longer to come to the same conclusion.
