Seems to me when the offense does absolutely nothing for 3 quarters then tries to eek out a win by scoring late in the game, then expecting a depleted defense to come up with a stop, that's a pretty good recipe to lose... :oops: I don't understand why the offense was struggling so much against DET...as I understand it, their defense was pretty depleted as well...we should have been able to score much more than we did...

They had a good pass rush all game and kept getting to Cousins. But Hopkins also doinked a FG off the top of the upright, and Jones fumbled at the two for a touchback. So we weren't quite as inept as the final score suggested.

What happened to our running game? They WERE doing pretty well with it in previous games, did they abandon the run against the Felions?

Thompson ran pretty well. Jones' work pretty much got cut way back after his second fumble. And Kelley never really got a chance.

Well, they'd certainly never expect that, but If it fails, then they get the ball with < 50 yards to go. Not many coaches would call something like that.

Sounds like something Billicheck might do... particularly if he were missing his star CB and didn't have a lot of faith in his D late in the game and on the road
