Lets just get something out of the offense for a change. Last years quick start was because of a tornado by our D and ST's. They both scored TD's and then we hung on. Once that inevitably dried up, we started losing.
We almost kept it going in the Philly game but Sendejo and Barr couldn't quite get it done. Had they, who knows how that train would have kept rolling.
Eventually we were cooked with that atrocious OLine. We were never going anywhere when your weakest link is that bad.
We've improved with playmaking ability both through acquisitions, and another year for the young players, and Bradford having a whole offseason with these receivers, but it still comes down to how well we pass pro/ run block.
But yes, offensive improvement would be huge.
Agree. We ultimately were going to fail but if we run away with that Philly win (as it was looking for the first half) who knows. The confidence of that team would have been through the roof.
I think, and again, JMO, that was the moment they knew they didn't have horses and the whole team just deflated.
