...about the defense.
I will agree that they couldn't get the redskins 3 and out but they were strong for the first 2 quarters. This game has to do with the fact that you can't strand your defense to constantly win the game for you. They left the game in the hands of the defense with Pittsburgh, with the Bears, and now with the Redskins. Unfortunately, if you can't get a first down to save your life then you can't score and obviously you're defense is going to get tired and that's exactly what happened.
What is going wrong? What is the problem?
Last week, and the week before, we said that we were missing Westbrook and that was the reason for the slow offensive start but now we have all of our playmakers, excluding Curtis, and we still can't make anything happen. So is it the coaching ineptitude or is something else at fault?
Why for example was Jackson out for most of the second half and why were we continually performing "trick" or misdirection plays to Westbrook when we're supposed to be a team that strives for balance with all of the other playmakers? This is rediculous, we deserved to lose this game because we can't score and it's as simple as that. I thought that maybe we were just having a slow start but this sad.
Heck, we don't even have the ability to turn each drive into a field goal anymore like we did in 2007, nope, now we just give them better field position than we could with a punt. I hate this, I hate not being able to catch a break or make a play because of: Bad playcalling, dropped passes, poor calls, etc.
What are your thoughts? At this rate, with this kind of poor offensive performance I see 8-8 with no playoffs...
