All it takes is a couple first downs and then our offense is once again facing a 80+ yard field.
the defense has done plenty to earn their keep. There's plenty of other offenses that are capable of scoring, starting at the 10-20 yard line,or at least making it to mid field to change field position. These guys need to start stepping up a lot more. I think they are capable (Cincy, Giants game) - but, damn -we just can't stay healthy - I hate saying that because it sounds like an excuse - but we really need the same guys on the field to get into any rhythm for the post season. Just my two cents.
