Default Our D was bad!

The offense had its problems, but the D was not much better. Troy was trying to tackle all night with one arm. The line put next to no pressure on Leftwich. Our secondary gave up third down conversions all night. Fred Taylor had linebakcers bouncing off him left and right. Granted the D got tired 'cause the O is horrible (Texan like?), but somebody make a stop.

Ummm...we gave up 9 points on the road. I'll take that anyday of the week.

Most importantly and a point some seem to have a problem comprehending is the fact that when your defense is on the field for 90% of the game, it's going to tire out. They are not robots. Hell, I'm amazed they only gave up 9 points.

I think Troy is hurting more than he and the coaching staff leads us to believe. He totally was trying to tackle with one arm last night.

I know they got tired, but the scheme looked bad also.

Bottomline: They gave up 9 points on the road while being on the field longer than the officials. I'll take it anyday of the week against any team. They never touched our endzone.

No it wasn't. I don't have a problem with giving up 3 field goals. They missed a few tackles that gave Taylor some yards and got caught blitzing on a couple of screens.

Here we go.

Our D only gave up 3 FG's but still I guess if I watch last night's game over (after watching ESPN) we do need to tackle way better! They let the Jags RB dance on their heads :(

Notice though. In the first half we stopped Taylor clean. He had nothing. We held him to 16 yards on eight carries in the first half.

It was in the second half (against a tired defense and a safety with one arm which leads to missed tackles) that Taylor started coming up big. He had 76 yards on 14 carries. Also, let's not forget that Taylor is simply a pretty damn good back.

Obviously, with some people, anything less than a shutout is "bad"

9 points on the road and NO...ZERO...0 TDs allowed. I'd call that a solid performance by a defense that was clearly tired after being on the field all night long.

Wow, you guys aren't giving the Jags any credit. The Steelers would bring 8-9 people and their O-line and backs blocked them all. They picked up the blitz almost every time and had guys open.
