You may recall the old "In the Hunt" futility statistic. To be in the hunt, a team must be no more than one game under .500 and cannot have as many as eight losses. The assumption is that a winning record generally gets a team in the playoffs, and we know that that isn't always true. So it's a generous estimate.

With the Bungs starting out with three straight losses against Baltimore, Houston, and Green Bay, they looked to be headed for one of those seasons where they are never in the hunt. Then lo and behold, they won their next two against Buffalo and Cleveland.

So now the Bungs are 2-3 and playing the 4-2 Stoolers at Pittsburgh. A win keeps them in the hunt for another couple of week while a loss likely drops them out of it for perhaps the rest of the season. On the other hand, we might be on the edge of one of those seasons where the Bungs are frequently threatening to get back into the playoff race, but never quite getting there except for an odd week or two. In other words, a paradise for the sheep.

I suspect they lose a close one here in a nationally televised game to tease the faithful.

Uzoma is a project with questionable hands. Not a good combination.

They got the TD anyway, even with Uzoma's drop. Brandon Lafell comes through. Green can't do it all. It's amazing how much better Dalton is with Lazor as his OC.

Is Lazor still the QB coach, or did another assistant step up for that function?

You guys realize that Pacman is out today, right?

Maybe not such a bad thing overall, but they missed him on the drive.

Where's the D?

Looks like George Iloka spent too much time practicing to take a knee and not enough practicing football. #mostoverratedsafetyinfootball.
