The STs (in Herv's words) crapped the bed "AGAIN", like they do every week and have done for a couple years now and helped lose the game.
The offense.. mainly Schaub and the offensive line crapped everywhere and lost us the game.
So if I'm going by that assessment, only one unit looked decent. Giving up only 16 points is considered a win in today's league and like I said before... I'll take that every week... except for when we play Jacksonville.
& giving up 28, then 24 is also considered a loss. The offense didn't whine about it, they went out & scored 31 & 30 to win the game.
A three & out in the second half would have been great.... I don't know that the offense would have scored. I'm thinking they wouldn't have the way they looked. But the point remains. Time & the score was against us in the second half & the defense didn't help.
They gave up 13 points in a half. That can't be considered good football. We can't expect our team to give up 26 points a game & win many games.
They played their a55 off in the first half. Not so much in the second half. The exact opposite of what they did vs San Diego & Tennessee.
