Regarding Carolina.. they're 1-4 for a reason - they're not any good. So yeah it's obviously better
to beat a bad team on the road than lose to them, but it's not like they went into Candlestick and dominated a contender.
Not yet anyway
I totally get that (that's why I said the offense was supposed to be dynamic, their team isn't that good), but it was a road win. I don't mind you pointing it out, either, but a road win is a road win, in my book. .
If you can do your work at home and win 7 or 8 it decreases the pressure of having to win 6 or 7 on the road. Really, we have a shot at going 8-0 at home or 7-1 this year, a shot. That makes us only having to win about 3 road games to make the playoffs. We already won one and we have the Niners, Lions, Dolphins, Bears, and Bills. If we can win at least two more of those I like our chances and it makes these Power Rankings irrelevant.
Cool thing about a great defense is you can win any game. Bad thing about a great defense and a poor offense is you can also lose any game. If the offense continues to develop, we've got a great shot. Sorry, rambling now cause I'm drinkin' the kool-aid!!
