The overall concern many of us have is that the first two offensive drives of the game are HUGE to our success/failure. It's almost a cliffs' notes in advance most of the time.
Many other teams are not quite like that.
So if we face the Giants in the playoffs, those 1st two drives should most likely be:
Penalty free, with good run/pass mix and hopefully TD drives. We do that, and we are definitely in it till the end.
If not, we could be in a lot of trouble.
Anyone get the sense if Smith doesn't hit Crabs for that first TD, that the final score instead of 24-3 could very well be 16-10? The blowout with Buffalo could have been a game too if Willis didn't get the strip right before halftime after we fumbled it just a play or two before.
Seahawks game very easily could have been a comfortable win if Smith hit Kyle for a TD on the first drive. Very volatile confidence our offense has.
These things are concerns right now, perhaps easily forgotten in 8 weeks time. Hopefully.
