    It would be nice to have an offense that plays more than 1-quarter of good ball. The game has 4 quarters. We get behind in these games and sometimes it's a loss due to the fact the "O" fails to show up in the first 3 quarters of the game.

    That is much higher than I thought we might be. Not only is that based upon Yards per game, but we are 4th if you filter it down by Points per game. So the offense looks much better statistically, and that supports some of the production we have seen on the field, just surprised that it is that high.

    Looking at Defense and 20th in Yards per game allowed and 26th in points per game allowed. That statistic is exactly what we are seeing on the field.

    The problem is turnovers. We are #3 in the entire NFL for giving the ball away in turnovers. Only the N.Y. Giants and Arizona give the ball away more than us. It's a back breaker in big games when you turn the football over to your opponent.

    It also hurts your defense, and that is showing up in games too.

    It's great to have the 11th ranked offense, but they need to make better use of their runningbacks. We all know Forte can push it into the endzone, but seeing as we're financially strapped, and Michael Bush may become a cap casualty (he'll only make $1.5 million next year, but a rookie would be cheaper), so they should throw the big guy in to help wear down opposing defenses. I don't think I've seen one instance where the opposing defense was as gassed as ours at the end of the game.

    I wouln't be so down, 99. With a little more work, we may be able to work our way up to #1

    I didn't think about it like that, but it makes sense. Plus, everyone says it takes 3 years to master an offensive system. I know it's only 5 games, but I think it's a pretty safe bet that Trestman is going to be here for the 3 years needed to make the offense work perfect. The good thing is, we know for sure 3 of our offensive linemen, one if not both of our runningbacks, our tight end, our quarterback and probably both of our wide receivers are also going to be here for that time. Seeing them already as the #11 offense in the league has to make one think, that once Trestman becomes more adept at playcalling, and adjusting his gameplan, this will be an elite offense soon, and probably for a good while. All they really need, after this season (barring a catastrophe) is a replacement for Garza and another TE, a backup QB, for one of our young WR's overtake Earl Bennett and probably a speedy RB that can return kicks.
