It was the same thing. A whole unit was horrible and looked bad and yet, it was one player's fault: Kareem Jackson.
Today, the offense scores 9 pts, and it's one person's fault: Matt Schaub.
It's easier to convince yourself it's one player's fault than acknowledge that the team has multiple weaknesses that combine into a really bad performance.
