Default Missed opportunities

So far I am pretty happy about the game, especially the defense. I don't want to go into specifics in case things end up going the other way with those specifics, but I will say I think we got this game sealed and have looked good doing it. Seems like the o line took a step back though whe Essix replaced Legursky. Another thing that concerns me is we are starting to throw long alot again. Now the o line is giving enough time and the receivers are getting open, but I just don't like us going back to that. So far though my main concern is how many deep, possible TD passes Ben has missed. It's 17-3 as I type, but it could easily be 31-3 if Ben would have made just two of the 5 throws he missed, and missed bad. When we play good teams like the Pats and Ratbirds we won't get 5 chances at 40+ yard plays, Ben has to make them and it worries me that he's not. Overall we are playing good and I dont wan't to sound like I am complaining, but we have missed the chances to seal this game, and now the jags are still in it.

I understood it in the first half. Ben missed again on 3rd down and now we are punting in a 17-10 game.

I'd like to have seen at least another touchdown by the time we headed into the 4th quarter. The offense came out hot and now is crapping the bed. We are a mistake away from a tied game - all speculative but a better team would have been absolutely stomping them by now.

Once again - regardless of win - we aren't able to put together two dominating wins in a row.

As I type - Ben is sacked and ball is loose. Oh yea - there is that Mathis guy too. This is getting uncomfortable.

Oh crap - Sepulveda's over kick now has Jags at their own 47 to start. Troy is sitting out the series. This smells bad. Real bad. WTF?!?!?!? Even if we win - I think I'll safely call the Titans game a blip rather than part of a rising trend, unfortunately.

The offense has just given up. At the half it had that blow out feel, and probably cause Ben missed two touchdowns and it should have been a 31-3 game. If this was a playoff game I would say we were paid at the half to take a dive. 1 for 10 and missing bad on scoreable long passes, if it were the playoffs I would be saying that. The defense is stillvplaying great. It sucks to blow out a bad team in the first half and then screw up so bad that the next day the paper reads "Nail biter in Pittsburgh". I can't explain my anger right now.

17 to 13. Nothing like looking like a very sub-par 3-3 team or a very mediocre 4-2. These guys have completely fell asleep on offense in the 2nd half.

I wouldn't be shocked if we lost at Arizona next week. We are NOT ready for the Pats at home.

Re on Ben with protection - yup, Ben has been inaccurate at best in the 2nd half.
