I couldn't disagree more.
Not only did the defense only give up 7 honest
points, they also scored 7 points for the offense.
This offense hase given the ball away 10 times in 2 games, putting a lot of pressure on the defense in to defend. In the lone game the offense didn't turn the ball over, the defense shut out its opponent.
The offense boils down to the o-line. Fix that & we are fine.
I won't deny fixing the line will help, but we need a lot more to be "fine."
Further, I'm not so sure there is a "fix" for this offensive line anyway.
This offense is too one demensional.....
[quote}Not that it's that simple. I also think it wouldn't hurt to draft a speed RB. Mendy has been dancing too much (no holes?) and I love Redman, but we need a threat to get on the edge and run to daylight....a la Fast Willie.[/QUOTE]
Mendenhall sucks. If he weren't a first round pick, he would never see the field. If Redman hadn't gone undrafted, he would get 20 carries a game. Simple as that.
