And now they've notched their belts with yet another road loss. This time to the lowley Dolphins and Ryan ferkin Tannehill. You can't lite a fire in wet grass and that's what we have in the trenches. Our OL layed over like wet grass and our D followed suit.
Now please excuse me while I go watch the Russel Wilson highlights... because he, as usual, was the only one who showed up fully prepared and ready to play.

Hell in 1986 I believe, the Hawks went on an incredible run late in the season and were averaging over 30 points a game. However, the afc west was very competitive and they missed the playoffs by one game, and they were the best team in the league at that point of the season.

Does this work in the NFL? Well I doubt Tony Dungy ripped into guys and he won.
I think the biggest problem with Pete is just the guys are so loosey goosey, lack of discipline, penalties [which had been getting better]. He [admittedly] did a terrible job preparing for this game.

I'm sitting here watching Petes presser, he looks disturbed. I bet he's wide awake right now, at 3:34 A.M. just going over everything in his mind, the 2 weeks leading up and the game.
