Also, because of offensive ineffectiveness, the D has probably had to take more chances, which has probably hurt us as well.
And this is the 1st game of the year the offense has not scored 20 pts or more. The difference however is that the defense has put the offense behind the 8 ball 2 out of the 3 games. The san diego game we were down 14 at half and they promptly gave up another 7 right out the gate after half time...
The tennesse game they picked the worst time to let a bad qb go the length of the field on them and give up the lead the offense managed to get back....before the offense gave it up again that is.
Im not exonerating the offense in all this, im merely pointing out that this team
is sucking really bad right now. There's nothing i can look at and say we're ok in.....cept for Nuk...he's balling.
