Half a glass of Kool-Aid

 

So we're halfway through the season and rather than scattering thoughts across several different posts I'm just curious to get everyone's opinion at this point.  In an utterly cliche way of asking: Is your glass of Kool Aid half full, or is it half empty? 

Now we could all break down how individual players, or specific units, are doing at this point, but I'm mostly interested in the team as a whole. 

For myself, the teams record is about where I expected it to be.  I actually had them with one more win at this point in the season, but 1-7 and 2-6 are not exactly separated by the Grand Canyon.  So why is it that I feel so dissapointed?  Maybe it's because the progress seems so slow, if not invisible at times.  Maybe it's because they've actually lost a couple of heartbreakers.  Maybe it's because they can play the defending World Champions about as tough as anyone has this season, then play against one of the worst teams in the league with an effort that more closely resembled a pre-season game.  Maybe it's the injuries, maybe it's the play calling, maybe it's the culmination of a decade of losing and my patience wearing thinner and thinner.

Whatever the case for me, I can honestly say that my glass was only half full to begin with.  These last couple of weeks not only spilled out most of the Kool Aid that was left, but I'm checking the cupboard and finding that I'm running out of sugar.  So those are just my thoughts, just my opinion, just the way I feel about this team at this point.  I can accept and respect the fact that some will disagree, and others have a different perspective.  So where do you stand now POD?
