There were multiple plays where the lack of effort was apparent on that drive.
Sorry if I offended anyone, the namecalling was just me being emotional, and I stand by what I said.
But that doesn't mean I'm a bandwagon fan, I want this team to succeed as much as anyone and I believe in this team probably more than most people do.
I was just really set off by their effort on that final possession and I thought it was clear as day how bad it was. Guess not.
That doesn't mean I'm writing off the season or anything like some people are, and I think our defensive personnel and playcalling on both ends is, for the most part, fine. I thought Dixon played great and I enjoyed some of the plays the defense made when things looked grim.
I'm not too disappointed in the L, I'm just disappointed in the players on the field for those few running plays,.
