The loss is on both sides. It's a team game. How many games have we had where a drive by the offense would have sealed the win? The defense obviously could have stopped them too but the issues are not all on one side.

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 defense that can win you games with that kind of offensive production...?

Last year you could make this exact same post about our defense and most of the chuckleheads would say, "Yeah but that doesn't matter because it is all about the fourth quarter when it is "clutch time". Now that Cam and the offense has struggled some it is the opposite.

BTW Baltimore won last night while scoring 13 points.

Yea our whole team changes midway through the 4th quarter.The offense makes negative plays and look lethargic the defense goes as soft as a peni$ in Rosanne Barr's hands.

What is this defence that you speak of? Are we limey's now? :)

But our defense has mostly played well this season up until crunch time. For most of the games this season, ouf offense has played poorly for the entire game. The d is better than the o by a longshot, but the team has mental problems right now. While its not all Rivera's fault, he and the rest of the coaching staff are going to have to go.

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

defense plays better just by itself at the end of games and we are 6-4 instead of 2-8 and very much still in the playoff race, with impressive wins over the Falcons and Bears.

Yeah it's all the offense (rolls eyes)

Say what you want bout the defense, but they are grossly overrated on the Huddle. They are mentally soft to the point they help the other team win at the end of games. They just quit in OT yesterday and have lost more games than I can count the last 2 years.

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?


You are neglectign to see that the anemic offense is putting the defense in a position where they have to shut down teams late in the game.

Offense avg 14 pts a game is a HUGE problem in the NFL.

Im not saying our offense is doing its job, im just a firm believer in situational opportunities and if you are in a position to win the game, then it needs to happen. Whether thats the defense making a stop, or the offense marching down the field, it needs to happen. The Defense has blown some pretty bad would-be wins for 29 other defenses [ATL, CHI, TB]. Those three games alone still make me go punt kittens off the side of a cliff.
