So what you're saying is back to the superbowl for us!
The 2 losses are kind of hard for me to explain. Seahawks shut us down, but the game plan was just an absolute brain fart, it's really difficult to evaluate that loss when it seems like the strategy was for Kap to air it out with no receiver core. Then against Indy, we absolutely gash them in the first half on the run and then abandon it at half time with another brain fart moment from GRo. Not saying we didn't deserve to lose, but both games were incredibly close until the last quarter where we tried even harder air it out in catch up.
Obviously words were had after Indy and a change in philosophy, now I don't know who instigated that, but as soon as we remembered we were a running powerhouse we've been blowing teams out.
As such, it's hard to take any real meaning from the losses. Michael Irvin can say whatever he wants, but in both games we were still in it till the last quarter despite taking a shotgun to both feet in terms of game planning and play calling. The real test will be against NO and Carolina to see if we've applied what we have learned.
