I'm not buying that. They DID
do it. How many three and outs did they force.. to me that's as good as a TO, because it sets your offense up with good field position and what did the offense do with that excellent field position? Not a damn thing. The defense did their job against the Ravens, did they give up some plays.. yes they did, but that's how today's game is now. The rules are geared towards helping the offense and a competent offense should be able to move the ball against any defense during spurts of the game. The Ravens were able to make enough plays.. our offense wasn't.. ball game.
That loss was not on the defense, the defense was the only facet of the team that showed up on Sunday. The offense and STs (outside of our punter) never even made it off the plane.
