Before we get ahead of ourselves everyone needs to realize that the 1 competent offense that we played put up 35 on us.
Yes the defense is improving every week, but they have played the Phins, Bears, and Rams. combined 1 win between them and that 1 win came against the chiefs.
While it may be encouraging at this point, wait for NE to get an accurate read at where we are at right now. I would say given our Division we are a shoe in for the playoffs, and given our conference, we may even be talking about home field advantage come december. But until we get a real test, Im not ready to say we could handle the colts, the pats, or any explosive offense at this point.
We can hang in the NFC, I think that much is evident due to the lack of offensive dominance by any team other than us and the close games that the packers seem to be involved in every week.
We need to stop looking at stats and start looking at opponents. We haven't proven anything yet other than we can beat the teams that we SHOULD beat.
