How Good is the Team Really?

As impressive as we looked in week 1 against the defending champs, we looked equally unimpressive in Seattle. My biggest fear surfaced and that fear was that our offensive line would struggle against the stronger defenses in the league. Defensively, we performed like we did a lot of times last year. We did okay. Certainly not great, but okay. Some of the points that Seattle had were attributed to turnovers so the overall score doesn't accurately depict how our defense played. The Seahawks did put together a couple good drives, but it wouldn't have stood out so much had we been able to put some more points on the board ourselves. The biggest worry defensively was the fact that the Seahawks offensive line man handled our line and had a forceful running attack. But it would've been something we could overcome if our offense showed up. And this brings me to the following questions:

(1) Is our offensive line so inadequate that we can utilize our offensive weapons? I know Witten had the dropsies and Dez had the fumblesies, but where were our playmakers? We gotta get something from somebody.

(2) Do we lack discipline? Is our team not being coached properly? Why don't we have better cohesiveness.

Tampa Bay should be a nice escape for our line and allow our offense to get back on track, but what would that really prove? We got issues. We got issues when we face the tougher defensive teams.
