April 2006 vs April 2007 (and more)

So we are now 25 games into the 2007 season.  That is roughly 15% of the 162 games that will be played.  The Rangers are 10-15, five games below .500.  Last year through 25 games (also ending 4/30), the Rangers were 13-12.  Just two days earlier, they had been 11-12 and they would not be below .500 again until the end of July.  

The 2007 squad is already 5 games below .500 (or 2.5 depending on how you figure).  The only time the 2006 team was in that same position was when they were 2-7 through the first 9 games.  They never fell that far again (they were 6 games above .500 on June 18 at 38-32, the best W-L difference they would have that year) and lost the last two games of the season to end at 80-82.

I am the eternal optimist when it comes to my teams.  I always believe they can pull it out and come from behind and that miracles happen.  But at what point do comparisons like this stop becoming knee-jerk and turn into being a real worry?
