Forget Cam for a moment, how can any of you have confidence in a victory given the way our defense has played?
And please don't pull out the Saints game as an example of a good defensive performance. Graham dropped a couple of key passes, including one that would have been a TD. Their 4th receiver (can't remember his name, but he's the little white guy with the funny TD dance) also dropped a sure TD.
I'll pick the Panthers again once the D shows me something on the field, not before.
giants defense was poo for most of the season last year.
the pats D? forget about it.
the packers when they won it all? wasn't the D.
quite a few teams have made it into and through the playoffs with bad defenses and good offenses. just like some have done just as well with bad offenses but good defenses...but that is becoming rare.
all you really need is for one phase of your team to be hitting it at just the right time and usually the teams that are ripping it up early in the season peter out late, meanwhile teams that will go far in the playoffs will much of the time struggle early on.
hopefully our D can at least get to the point that they aren't sucking and can be respectable. i think the offense is close to getting it's groove back and when it does then we will be pushing for a playoff spot...unless it takes too long and we've dug a hole too deep (which we haven't yet.)
there's still time.
