We can't say we are out of a playoff berth yet, but yeah if what logically comes to pass, I would have to say it was primarily because of the lack of D. I never expected to see this kind of drop off from one year to the next. I also did not expect to see our O score this much. I kind of expected more of a steady offense that could hang with the best teams because our D could keep the opponents scores fairly low. More of a "better than midpack" offense. And honestly, with the flaws that the offense has, it is probably just that. Except it scores like a top tier O. I can't waht to see what this O will be like after the players have had a few years in it. I just hope we can get some real defensive leadership in here that can turn that ship around. If we can do that, we are going to be one hell of a team to try and stop.
