Kaep produces a statline like that, we will get blown out!
What was Drew Brees' stat line on Monday again? 24/38 for 147 yards, 1 TD, and 1 lost fumble?
I didn't think you were normally like this, verb? I feel like you're trying crazy hard to pick a fight, brother! I'm sure you watched the game and know why the stat line was like that. An INT on a miscommunication, but other than that, a slug-fest, defensive, field-position battle game that had to be managed and eventually we broke free with the game winning TD drive.
Of course, we'd all love to see a better statistical performance. We'd be elated to have a big statistical output WITH a win. But if CK has a similar game and we win, I will be ecstatic, because that still means he did what was necessary to help his team win. The Seahawks are the #1 defense in the league right now, last year they were #4. When you're playing a team like that, low yardage totals -- ESPECIALLY when taken into context with the game -- shouldn't come as a shock or be looked at as "horrible".
