Since when did calling it the way it is become doom and gloom. It is what it is. As Tomlin would say they are what they put on film. Whats on film through two preseason games has been miserable. Now we are down a starting running back. The line looks as bad as we all thought it might. And the play calling has been disturbing. Combine that with bad penalties and turnovers and there you have it. What else are people supposed to talk about?
Truth is I do not see homerism at all.
Who is screaming this is a SB team?
It is only the haters who are making prediction of doom and gloom.
Someone says "lets have perspective and not judge this team based on all of TWO meaningless preseason games" makes him a blind homer?
THAT my friend is ridiculous.

I don't think anyone is a hater of this team.... but some are definitely haters of the OL pass protection, another RB in sweats, TO's, penalties, etc.
doom and gloomers and haters are the ones who see a player do something well and continue to bash him or predict failure.
I'll never understand why people are fans of something that they are NEVER happy with. There are a lot of them here and it's why I don't visit very often. The team is never going to be perfect, no team will ever be and if that's what some of you are waiting for, good luck!
A doom and gloomer is by definition one who habitually predicts "doom and gloom".
I recall our getting smoked one year by Philly. Worst protection for Ben I have ever seen, he was being eaten alive. Doom and gloomers came out to say we were done....won the SB
When we looked out of the playoffs..... under BC and Carson Palmers Bengals won the division.....doom and gloomers came out of the woodwork...... then wons the SB
We looked VERY BAD DURING THE SEASON and wons championships.
This is only preseason dude.
I share your concerns over ALL the point you mention here (glad you seem over the playcalling stuff, I WOULD call you on that). I have posted those concerns in other threads. Nobody is "blind" to these. But it is WAY too soon to "put a fork in it" with this team.
That is all we're saying.
