Our offense between the 20s is gorgeous. 

Inside of it is fuging ugly. 

I'd have to imagine getting Cmac back will help some, but we still don't have a short yardage presence in any aspect.

What I get from it is they are not very good when it counts.

So the more things change, the more things stay the same?

NFL needs to cut the fields to 80 yards!!1!!!!1!!

If not for the red zone issues, Teddy would be in the MVP race.

I mean, I really didn't need a bunch of stats to tell me that we move the ball well, but can't seem to score it to save our lives.  We are a few clutch plays from having the most effective offense in the NFL.

At this point, I'm not overly concerned about it.  If we're still not scoring our red zone drives in December, then there's a problem.  It's sometimes important to remember that this year was never about winning championships or even making the playoffs.  This year was about establishing a new team identity.

Continue making steady improvements and we'll be fine.
