True dat, dat 'n dat, but the tackling was a bit ummm, uninspired. They were getting there most of the time. They just didn't seem to be able to do anything about it once they arrived. The interception was worth the highlight reel though.

Tackling was terrible, just awful. That had nothing to do with vanilla. Jenkins was just a judgement call away from 1st and goal and then Amaya was one more step away from a safety. They looked sloppy to me. 40-20 yes, but very sloppy. Does anybody wrap-up anymore? Maybe its illegal and no one told me.

I thought complementary football meant that when your offense just made a long, time consuming drive for a TD, that your defense should come out blazing and stuff the opponent. Especially on the first drive. This is the Raidaz and no way should they score 20 points on us.

I totally agree. 20 points is the high end for a quality team.

I'm glad I didn't see the game then. The defense sounds like they still don't know now to tackle.
Well we are about to go live soon, so lets see if all the excuses they are saying are for real. Or just made it's just they really can't tackle.
