We're not "having our cake and eating it to"... we're just being realistic and can see which side of the ball is playing better during this short season.
it is trying to have your cake & eat it too...You guys are hyper-vigilant about the woes of the offense but are flat out ignoring this defenses issues Simply b/c they've played marginally
better than the offense has thus far.
Nevermind about how the offense kept us within striking distance & eventually won us the game in WK 1 while it took the defense a whole 1/2 a game & quarter to get it's head out its ass...
nevermind how the offense came thru when we needed them most in the Tennessee game to pull out the victory.
Your post just illustrates it even more..."well, the rules are slanted towards the offense, so they should be putting up video game numbers..." Well, the other guys get paid too.
I mean just browse all the active threads thus far. All that is being talked about is what Schaub or Kubiak aren't
doing or how Foster isn't
running or something related to the offense.
The bottom line is that each side has needed each other to pick them up at times over the last 3 games. The 1st 2 games the offense answered the bell..this last game they didn't.
