How do you figure?
Out of the first 2 drives we sustained ONE.
I agree that the Defense did not fare well on their 3rd drive but I think that if we smacked them in the mouth in our 1st drive this is a completely different ball game. Defenses tend to get fired up when they KNOW their Offense is gonna smack the other team in the nose and impose their will on the other team.
So we came out swinging only to connect with air the 1st drive.
We looked like a midget swinging at Shaq while he's holding us off by our forehead the 2nd.
And EVERY drive going into the half was pretty much the same as drive number 2.
What the hell do you want from the Defense after that?
