Wrong, Clemons, Irvin Avril all out, Mebane and Bennett both playing with injuries. No excuses got to go with what you have, next man up and all, but to simply say we weren't missing our pass rush is ridiculous, Avril, Irving and Clemons accounted for well over 30 sacks last season, that's a significant loss.
I seem to remember hearing how JS and Aldon being out played a significant part in your loss last December, this is no different.. Good teams can overcome these losses when playing slightly weaker teams, but it doesn't change the fact that it's a significant loss. Not to mention we were missing browner...
Having said that, i was not impressed with the way our team looked, it was an ugly win, but i'll take it, sometimes you just win ugly, I fully expect to see a better showing Sunday on both sides of the ball.. I wouldn't be suprised if we lose, but i would't be suprised if we win either.
