The offense and defense were not equal on sunday. One was obviously MUCH worse.
Lucky said it best. Defense could have pitched a shutout and we still lose.
How many 3 & outs did they pitch after half-time? They allowed 13 points after half time. That was not good enough to win the game.
The offense stunk it up. Didn't score a point in the second half.... I'm not denying that. But the offense didn't win any games this year. The defense didn't win any games this year.
It's a team sport & they've got to work hand in hand. If the defense gives up 28 points in the first three qtrs, the offense has to score 28+ in the forth to win the game.
If the offense had packed it in & said, "Well, the defense gave up 28 points in the first three qtrs.... let's call it a day." Are we going to blame the offense for only scoring 7 points?
If they scored 21 points would we say, "The offense did their job, the defense gave up 28."
The defense played well enough to win in the first half. Can't say the same about the second half.
