I am proud of them always but it's really annoying to look like the worst team on the ice two games in a row.

We drop to 1-2

Are they now out of any chance of a gold?

There is still time to turn things around, hopefully these guys can find their groove in time!! Come on Team Jacobs we are all rooting for you!!!

Relax people, although they would have liked a better start; they've lost to two of the top 3 from the world championship last year.
So keep it in perspective. The lads have been in tougher situations, and once they find their mojo, they will be unstoppable.

go get em lads! we're all with you!

If it weren't for the steal of three they had the fourth end (I think) of the first game they could well be 0-3 as they struggled to make shots in that game as well.

They're definitely not curling their best right now. Still though, they got off to an average start at the Brier last year and caught fire. Fingers crossed the same happens again this year. They have it within them to run the table if they can figure things out.
