Everyone always says wait 24 hours until you start to talk about the game rationally. Well, Im about 19 hours early, but honestly I think Im good.
Now first off, of course Id rather win, but at the end of the day, we're 4-2 going into the Bye. We had 3 starting defensive players out (Merriman, Kelsay and Williams). We lost the turnover battle at a -2. We also played a team that hasnt lost back to back home games since 2007.
We should be getting a little more healthier with two weeks off. Kelsay should be back, Williams I expect to be above 90% and Im hoping Merrimans injury isnt all season long, but it is his achillies.
The main reason Im not upset is, we went for the win. A lot of people on here, on WGR, on 97 Rock, etc... are upset with the play call with the Go Route to Stevie that resulted in the 2nd interception from Webster. People, Stevie was open, Fitz just made a poor throw. The play call was perfect, and when he catches and scores, we're up 7 with a little over 4 minutes left. I cant believe people are really questioning Chan Gaileys playcalling, considering a HUGE reason we are 4-2 is... Chan Gaileys playcalling.
So I guess the main reason for this post is to tell everyone to relax a little. We've got Washington coming in after the Bye up in Toronto, theyre a good football team, but definitely beatable. This is a game that if I had to put a wager on, we win. If someone would have told me we'd be 4-2 (1-0 in the division) and essentially still control our own destiny to make the playoffs, in the beginning of the year, I would jump all over that.
So lets get healthy and get set for a hell of a next 2/3's of the season.
