Zero points produced by the offense in 40+ minutes of the 2nd half & overtime (covering 8 possessions). Well, except for the 7 points generated for the opposition.
And there are still apologists wanting to point the finger at the defense? Posters should be embarrassed to put their name to this absurdity.
The intense scrutiny that the D has incurred is certainly a function of people's frustration with Schaub's play. They feel that the latter is ultimately a hopeless case, unlikely to change. So they've focused in on the D, looking for more "perfection" than may be otherwise expected, to take up the slack. If the O was playing more error-free, the "pimples" on the D would be less likely a subject of conversation. But one truism remains.......both sides of the ball are having their share of having difficulty in playing a "complete game."
