The utter failure of the passing game offsets any great joy over the running game. The defense was good, not great. Schaub handing us the ball three times makes the defense look better than it was.
I don't expect any legit playoff teams to be so generous to a team that has only 1/2 an offense.
Glass half empty. That is the way you have to look at it until the passing game actually shows up.
it is one thing for a team to hand it to you,,, it is another thing for us to take advantage of those xmas gifts. we got three touchdowns on some of those gifts they gave us. remember it was not to long ago we would moan all we get is field goals? a good team will make teams pay for giving you stuff, with touchdowns, ck did not have great glittery stats which i know is the gold standard by which all is measured,, but he made some throws when he needed to and never made a mistake so it was not a "utter failure" unless you play madden or fantasy and then thats your problem. the defense was solid, the special teams were solid, the run game was solid, we never made mistakes... i am sorry but that is how you win games. had we not taken advantage of those gifts given to us, also our guys were in the right place at the right time and made the plays,,,,,, then we would be having a different conversation this morning
