5 for 28 combined in both games. I contend it was the offense and the offense alone who was responsible for the games even being close at the end. The offense converts 3rd downs like an average NFL team, we win both those games by 10+ points
Its not even debatable imo.
What is debatable is which part of the offense or who in the offense is most responsible
If we completed 3rd downs like you were expecting, we would go down in history as the greatest team of all time while destroying every team by 21 points.
Point is, each team is built differently. We played our kind of game: run the rock, shut down the run, & get a couple big offensive plays. Only difference being the turnover margin.
Thanks again Kyle Williams.
See this is why I didn't like keeping Kyle Williams on the roster. Instead of blaming the guy who fumbled 3 freakin times in a game while touching the ball like 6 times........we are now looking for other people to blame. The media is again blaming Alex. This is utter b******t. Alex arguably out played Eli in the game & if not for Williams vommiting all over himself, Eli probably struggles with a >65.0 Passer Rating.
