Default Someone Please Help....

Someone help me out here.

I missed the game today . Can someone sum up for me what went wrong....PLEASE. Preacher, Tonyhipchest, fansince76, Hometowngirl.....anyone.

Some of the things I've noticed in our previous two losses:

Bad pass protection.......Ben scrambling instead of checking down WR's.......and Willie picking the wrong rushing lanes.

Where any of these things factors in our loss??

We played down to their level. The Jets D stepped up but in the end it was special teams coverage that killed us.

OL gave up 7 sacks to a team that had 9 for the entire season coming into the game. Seemed like every time we might have gotten something going, Ben got sacked and the drive got killed. Something HAS to be done with this OL in the offseason.

Thats because you didn't watch the Raiders lose to the Vikings.

Hate to say it, but a few of your old Massillon OH teams would've given us a run for the money!

Thanks guys. It seems like the majority of the blame falls on the OL. I don't know how we'll be able to upgrade and replace Faneca at the same time.
