While I am continually annoyed by playing with such a large cushion by our DBs, Josh Thomas didn't lose the game. The offense did. It's been said pretty consistently by others (and I agree), that when you hold an opponent to 12 points, you really need to win.
So let's look at the offense:
-Cut Cam because he didn't hit LaFell when he was running free, AND he played it safe the whole game?
-Cut Williams because he fumbled at the end?
-Cut Olsen because he had some major drops (where did these come from?)
-Cut the coaches because they weren't aggressive enough?
The Knee-Jerk reactions are the huddle are hilarious. I appreciate the depths of fervor for our team, but we also need to respect there are certain realities. When you don't make plays, or the other guys make'em; you're going to lose. (possible misuse of semicolon!)
My take away from Sunday is: Don't play to not lose. Play to win (like our D did most of the game), and take some risks when you have someone out pacing the secondary (Ginn).
