Wow. I figured you would understand the concept. We get off the damn field when we hold teams to third and long situations. of course now we can't get off the field because teams are rushing in 3rd and 2 situation when we have our nickel defense on the field.
we had success against Green Bay because they passed the ball on first down and we held them sometimes. Never needed a nose tackle. We had control with the clock. The next two teams have bigger backs and the common theme is that we have the ball in our hands for 23 minutes a game. Sickening.
how long have we had trouble against bigger running backs? It's a huge problem now that we have backup nose tackle starting.we can get stuff the more physical backfrom gaining 5 yards a carry. and teams are seeing that we give up so much in the middle of course they run on 3rd down and short from 3 receivers.
NT is one of our biggest problems don't let the lack of offense of the team fool you.
