Offense and defense played great. Now if we can only get that week in and week out.
Something that has gotten lost in this victory though is that our special teams is still a liability.
So we had bad luck and a shanked punt skipped off one of our return game blockers.....poo happens to every team, regardless of the morons that claim it only happens to us. The punt only went 26 yards, no one's expecting that poo to drop down right there and Brockel was engaged with his man.
Nortman boomed a punt like 80 fuging yards in the air and his other was pretty good as well.
Gano kicked every kickoff through the endzone and drilled a 53 yarder that would have been good from 60......
so excuse me if I don't see the problem this week.
The reality is that outside of two bullshit penalties (the second one was legit, I suppose) against Smith for going out of bounds and another snake bitten return game blocker having a ball hit him, our special teams has been pretty fuging good.
