Dominant defense is great....but remembering that we have beaten losing teams and still thrown away 2 games in the 4th quarter this season is crucial to winning in the future. The SF game still showed that the Panthers can and will give it away in the 4th. Do you guys not remember SF getting the ball twice in the final 5 minutes?
Did anyone see what the Patriots did to the Saints in the 4th quarter? Did anyone see what hey did to the Steelers in the 2nd half?
Rivera has to prove he can close out games and he simply hasn't done that.
But you are calling for a blowout, not just a loss.
Explain to me how that will happen with a dominant defense that you acknowledge.
