It was another tough game to watch. We get out of the gates like a team on a mission and the get shut down for the second and third quarters.
I had to keep watching and it almost happened. Almost!! Dog gone it and few other words… Man, that hurts. There were too many turnovers and at the very end a early snap late didn’t help the affair and the sack. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
The telling fact was simply (1-9 or 11%) success on third downs. Stats, don’t you love em. Guess what our average yards per carry was??
Yep, 6.6 and 119 yards??…And we throw for 330 yards. That’s what gets ya. The stats. Not like we can’t get up and down the field. Now the killer….turnovers. In the NFL, that means disaster.
It’s not like we couldn’t move the ball… it was just inconsistent as always. Even the broadcasters were dogging the team, which was a little weird in that they went back to all the draft picks and the prior offense that we had and the guys that are gone. When the game got close again, they didn’t say a word. I guess everyone’s inconsistent…except us here in blogosphere.
Man, that one hurt but the 3rd downs just killed us.
A few friends texted me from the game and said the crowd was booing the coach and the stands were empty…. That kind of bums me out. If anyone has folks that don’t want to go to the game, have them jump in here on this blog and I know a TON of kids that would love to have the chance to go to the game.
I do a radio gig each Tuesday at 4 pm with Mac and Doog and I’m going to reiterate that because the stands should be full every week in this town and I’m a little upset about that. Wow!!
