.. and if we play 3-4 vs a normal set, we still have the run vs pass issues that can keep our rushers from pinning ears back.
I don't know... I just don't know anymore. It isn't like me to lose so much confidence in my team in such a short time... but it is happening, I can't lie.
damn, overreact much?
if there is any confidence being lost it should be in alex, not in our defense lol
I agree. I don't get these statements. Our Defense can't keep every team under 14 every game. NO Defense can. Our defense did keep on of the best offensive teams in the league to 26 (below their average) with 3 turnovers by our offense to deal with.
The Defense did average. They didn't play great but they didn't exactly suck. If our offense scores a couple of TD's, the Giants probably score one less.
The run game still played well. Our issue this game was passing the ball. You can try to pin it on the coaches but they believed in our players that a passing attack could beat the Giants. Most of the time they try this, it doesn't turn out well.
The coaches can be blamed, but blame them for thinking that our passing attack was above average. If you want to blame anything else, it should be our passing attack.
