I deleted this one soon after our loss, and have no regrets. From my memory... our offense was ineffective in half 1.. our D was really outschemed in half 1.. Flacco had a Ponderesque performance (meaning, Ponder played above and beyond when the Vikes beat us).. our offense came roaring back after the blackout.. we had one last chance to atone for our poor play early on... and that chance was choked away.
That's about all the reminder I can stomach. I feel sick just typing this much.
LOL, totally understandable. Totally. It was interesting rewatching it...will do the 2nd half later this week...but in previous games we lost (Ponder), usually one or two things were more salient than others (e.g. secondary fell apart against NE and Seattle, missed FG's against the Rams, etc.). But this game? It absolutely magnified all of our "little issues" to the Nth-degree. And we had all of them even like you noted, the tale-of-two-halves; all the good and bad about our team.
I'm very curious to see how our coaching staff rectifies all their
issues as well...despite having one of the best coaching staffs in the NFL, they do have a ton of issues they also need to work on. I will now be watching all of these things during pre season and early on in the season to see if they too are getting better today, over yesterday.
The Quest for Six in back on...
