nobody is telling you to believe he's a savior of anything. but it's not a question of MATT MOORE VERSUS JIMMY CLAUSEN anymore. We're just saying he showed some solid improvement and hope he continues it. He's a rookie on a bad team. of course he isn't going to look great! he still lead the offense to scores, just not enough. That falls on him, yes. He didn't make as many plays as I'm sure he'd have liked, but he did make some, which, frankly, is better than the none we've had most of this year.
The defense was absolutely abysmal yesterday. Despite the fact we actually ran time off the clock, the fact we had some nice drives, the fact we scored, had good field position, etc, they could NOT stop the bucs.
That is why we lost. Clausen didn't win us the game, but the defense sure as hell lost us it. Who knows what would have happened if the Bucs had been held to a couple more FGs instead of TDs...
Team isn't bad. Special teams isn't bad and neither is the defense. 2 out of 3 phases are fairly good. We have/had poor QB play making life hell for everyone. QB can effect OL, RB, and WR play.
defense didn't lose that game anymore than the offense did. Offense just doesn't score. Late in that game there were several chances before the Caddy run and the O did nothing. When you never do anything week after week and always ask for another defensive play......eventually you see what happened Sunday.
