    We must be watching a different game than others here I agree with you.

    We all watched the same game. Problem is, people saw all the injuries and how poorly our offense was playing, so are making excuses for the defense. And sure, it definitely played a role...it still does not excuse how poorly they played.

    Look at this way: we lost our damned Starting QB, and Trestman has his offense coached so well, that our backup QB (whom everyone hated remember), comes out, and does BETTER than Jay did, keeping us in the game. The offense dealt with adversity and losing a key player by bouncing back, where our defense? They responded by getting worse.

    And as it stands now, every opponent we have faced this season has put up at least 21 points on us. So right off the bat...our offense/ST has to have a 3TD game (or 2TD and 1 Defensive TD if we are lucky), just to have a CHANCE of winning.

    One stop there at the end and we win. The offense for all its ills had us the lead with a couple mins to go. I understand that Briggs and Tillman were hurt BUT one play by ANYONE (almost Bowman) and we win. Couldn't buckle down.

    Jimmors, ya he lost his starting qb, he didn't lose his starting qb, 2 players off the OL, and WR and a TE.

    This isn't 1 or 2 inj's, the DL is KEY to running a cover 2, and they lost the starting and backup DT. You cannot afford that and run the cover 2. The Safety's suck, they sucked last year during FA and the draft I talked about how the safeties were a problem, and people acted like I was crazy. Well guess what, the safeties suck, and I am not crazy(my mother had me tested).

    The D is bad, no one is debating that. But the O does the D no favors, and the inj's have multiplied the issue.


    You can say 1 stop here or there or at the end and it's a different game, I could say 1 long drive, not even a score, or another drive and a FG and the game is different also b/c the Wash O isn't on the field scoring in the 1st half.

    One stop on ANY of the multitude of TD drives they had would have been enough. Washington kicked a grand total of....ONE. one FG all game.

    Good comparison. We'll be lucky to hold anybody under 30 with him back there. Play the rookie. Anybody.

    He's been for a long time. He should have been cut ages ago and let the position be used for a young WR or something.

    One could argue that the QB is more important to the success of the offense than multiple defensive players are to the defense.

    In any case...our DL has been piss poor all year. They couldnt get a pass rush when everyone (including Melton) was healthy, Peppers isnt doing shit, Shea is Casper the friendly ghost out there. Briggs is Hit or Miss. The only solid aspect of our D is tillman and jennings.

    Greatest favor the offense (Hester too) did was score 41 points. Is 41 points not enough to win in this league?
