Hmm, how did that prediction work out?
If we keep giving teams chances at the end of the game, they will beat us. That a "running team" can't even get ONE first down in 6 chances in 3 games with the ball given to us TWICE in the last five minutes of the game with a lead, is pathetic.
It could have cost us both our first two wins, and in this game the same awful play calling and/or execution finally cost us a game. WHEN YOU HAVE A LEAD AT THE END OF THE GAME YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO CONVER AT LEAST A FIRST DOWN OR TWO.
That was more important than the score we had, it's the score we allowed with our "GREAT' defense that killed us. But if we had made ONE first down in our last two drives, it never would have happened.
