Thing is this team has shown weaknesses since game one. We are still a good team, but we have our warts as well.
Fosters rushing avg has sucked all year. Our pass rushing Olb has been ordinary and ordinary might be a compliment.
We've been giving up rushing yardage like it's the cool thing to do. Special teams has been bad.
The team that took the field tonight would have lost with or without Cushing. Cushing doesn't make us three scores better.
