im just analyzing the facts here, and the fact is we are still nowhere near being able to close out games and become a winning team.
The facts as in the drive earlier we drove 72 yards on 15 plays and took 9 minutes off the clock? Or the fact that the drive before Ginn sealed up the game Seattle went 3 & out for -7 yards?
Or maybe it's the fact that many fans arent objective so when the media wants a better story and crowns a "hero" out of Ginn... The sheep will start to forget other actual facts like never trailing, having a defense that forced 5 sacks, 2 fumbles, 7 three and outs along with stopping 8 out of 13 drives for 10 yards or less, and an offense that when given the ball in the 4th quarter took 9 minutes off the clock and drove down the field and scored... not to mention special teams counts so the final score was still 33-17 and thats all that really matters.
