Unfortunately the excuse is a valid one. This Offense had the Packers on the ropes on the FIRST possession and we come away from the Red Zone with 3 points.
Might have well been ZERO points because we run 3rd and an INCH right into the strength of their Defense because WHY???
Because we're a "Power Running Team" and well we just can't allow the Opposing Defense to look foolish. We could have done SEVERAL things on that down. One of which was go to the Spread and Run a bootleg using Alex's strengths.
Instead we run the FB blast and LOSE yardage. You might just as well have told the Defense that you don't believe in your Offense at that point.
Oh and let's get something straight. That Packers Line was straight up holding on just about EVERY down. So let's not get excited about the lack of a Pass Rush.
