scxeezy Posted November 4, 2007 Report Share Posted November 4, 2007 Our season is now all but over. I had so much hope based on our schedule & players coming back that after week 8 we would turn it up. All we had to do was break even @ 4-4.So looking foreward to next year, I think it is important to use the rest of this season to get back on track. Hopefully Chad will be okay. Hopefully we will not have more problems with suspensions. Hopefully we will not have any more lasting injuries.I really like Carson Palmer, but one thing he lacks is the ability to drive down the field at the end of the game for the winning score. Most of his final drives (today was no exception) end in an interception.I really like Chad Johnson, but this year for some reason he has dropped WAY too many passes. Today's (one of the 3, at least) was so critical. That would have been an easy TD, giving us a commanding lead and probable locking up the W.Hopefully Rudi can get back to where he was, or Watson, Irons, Perry can take over and stay healthy.Hopefully our O-Line can stay healthy and provide Carson with some protection like they are expected to.Hopefully we can get some stud defensive players via free agency or the draft. I know this has never worked out in the past. Maybe this will finally be the year.Hopefully our defense will learn a) how to tackle how to cover on pass plays and c) how to pressure the QB. We cannot rely on getting TOs everytime in order to stop the opposing offense.I really hope that we do not suddenly start getting W's this year. I do hope we start playing better, but I would rather lose the remaining games, get a high draft pick and a favorable schedule next year. With our luck, we will start winning and finish 8-8 again, still missing the playoffs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
