But once again the offense put up just 14 points and managed 18 first downs. They achieved just 10 yards in the first quarter.

I would rather have an offense that puts up ten yards in the 1st quarter than a defense that gives up 14 points in less than 6 minutes... not to mention against a team with no timeouts

This Oline doesnt look right, out of sync.3rd wide receiver a non factor. This line needs blown up. Smitty+Lafell+ Murphy not good enough. Smitty+a real threat+ Lafell as WR3=good enough

Since the Atlanta game our offense has generated:

12 against Seattle
14 against Dallas
22 against Chicago
21 against Washington
14 against Denver
14 against Tampa

If you we're to think rationally, how often would a team generating that amount of points from offense win? The only games which I would expect a chance to win would be Chicago and Washington and we went 1-1 in those two games. Over the last 6 games we have averaged a shade over 16 points on offense.

Name one defence that can win you games with that kind of offensive production...?

the fact of the matter is we were in a position to win the game, and the defense didnt hold up. they score a touchdown with no timeouts, ok cool they still need a 2 pt conversion. Ok, two point conversion, its tied but at least we have overtime. Nope, they march right down the field and score a touchdown. thats back to back to back situations in which the defense failed, we had an 11 point lead with 6 minutes left. Name one defense that lets that happen?

It's much more common to see a team with momentum moving the ball easily against a tired defence. Add in a couple of questionable calls and let's be honest great plays on 4th down by them and the final drive in regular time wasn't as bad as people make out. It sucked and we should expect our defence to hold in those types of situations, but I am much more frustrated with our offense.

However, this thread is about how our offense is asking too much from a defence that has a lot of young and average players playing on it. This defence has kept the offense in games week in and week out, but the offence can't move the chains consistently.

Blah blah blah blah. You were in a position to win that game and 29 of 32 teams in the NFL DO win that game. Your D choked. Point blank period. The offense's job is to put up more points than the opposing offense, not some arbitrary number that would make you sleep better at night. They did their job, the last time the offense touched the ball the team was up 8. Yet you end up losing by 6. "Say what you want about the Defense"? Well I will, they lost you this game.

6 close losses. Defense in the crunch has let us down. Offense in the crunch has let us down at times as well. We arent that far off. Just gotta develop a winning attitude.
