So for the 4th straight year I won the regular season in both record and total points only to be bounced in the 1st round. Orton against AZ? Jennings against Detroit? Crabtree!? And of course I played against Vick. Weak.
Orton on the road 7 td's 7 int's in 6 games going in
at home 13 td's 2 in'ts. so....
Jennings yea that was a head scratcher but he did lose his QB in the 1st half.
Crabtree is ALWAYS a gamble to start.
You won the league record wise and points wise so it's safe to assume you could have used the last few weeks possibly even the last week of trades to get your playoff matchups/schedule right. Given the struggles (or the average play if you will) that Orton shows on the road, you should have adjusted accordingly. The Crabtree play was just a pure gamble no matter how you slice it.
