View Full Version : It's all about 3rd downs

The way I see it the biggest problem over the past couple of weeks has been 3rd down defense. The D makes great stops on 1st and 2nd then allows a big conversion on 3rd. All that energy goes to waste and at least three more plays are heading their way. Shut them down on third and get Ben and Willie back on the field. Keeps the D fresh and puts points on the board so you don't have to play from behind. It's that simple. Oh ya, create some turn overs!!

It's about 1st downs as well. The offense cant go 3 and out 5-7 times. They have to move the ball finish drives especially early in the game. Let's get a lead for a change instead of playing catch up.
