I'm going to see how long that lasts.
I think you're over selling it here. Everyone knows that we had two bad plays in the second half. We all know that we need to work with Eric Winston on the false start thing. We all know there are things we need to work with.

Some of us just don't think we need a thread titled, "& how many points did we score in the second half?"

& then the reasons given in that thread about why we were so bad are ridiculous & off base.

If you really want to get into it, how many points did we score when the defense didn't put us inside their 20? Take away the 7 from ST... The offense scored 13 points all game.


That's a bigger problem than zero points in the second half.

Also, at times the rush was not what I would like to see. Having said that, there were a number of great pass rushes that produced TO's etc. But those were mostly Mario on Clark a mismatch to be sure.

Last negative I will mention is the lack (once again) of any kind of killer instinct. We should have won this game with a score in the 40's, but Kubes not only took the foot off the gas pedal, it felt like he was driving with the emergency brake set. I grant you, it would have made ZERO difference in winning today. But it's all about a mindset, a mentality and in those tougher games you want that killer instinct, that ability to always be going 100 MPH and putting the foot on the throat. Face it, Kubes is too freaking nice.

Other than those 3 items, I give the rest of it an A+. All in all, I'm thrilled and I think we may have finally exercised those Colt demons. I believe we can now go to Indy and sweep these guys, I really do. The D is obviously vastly improved, the special teams were truly special today, and when it counted the offense moved the ball at will and other than a couple of times, they only stopped themselves. Great game. Now let's go get the Dolphins!
I agree for the most part. However, we were throwing the ball inside the Colts 10 at the start of the 4th. We would've scored over 40 if it weren't for the boneheaded pick from Schaub.

We definitely took the foot off the pedal after that drive though.

Overall, I was disappointed in the amount of TO's. To me, finishing a game like that is taking care of the ball and running it down their throats (like MJD did to us couple years ago)
