Re: Problem #1) We give games away!
We don't have an Adrian Peterson. They have him AND Chester Taylor who was fairly decent before AP showed up.
All we have is Steve Slaton.
We don't have a front four equal to Minnesota's. I warned folks that those Williams boys plus Jared Allen would be too much for our O-line to handle all day. They were. Its not just us. They're second in the league against the run. And that's not just this year, they finished first against the run in '07 and '06.
All we have is Mario and a gimpy DeMeco.
And when you say we gave them turnovers; think about that. The DB still has to make the play. Bennett had a chance to make a play and didn't come through. Their DB came through.
Did you hear the announcers when they pointed out that our "vaunted defense" has allowed 16 touchdowns out of 19 redzone opportunities. And that was coming into today's game. Bottom Line: We can't stop anybody.
Yeah, I hate it when we lose. But the hard truth is we still have significant pieces missing. We're still learning how to win. That winning-on-the-road lesson I mentioned in another thread has yet to take hold.
The good news, IMHO, is we're making progress.
