Well we know the offense has battled 3 VERY good defenses. And the Defenses have battled two of the top offenses. The only average offense we have played was CHI and we whipped them pretty good. GB and HOU are brutal to try to stop!

Thought I'd throw this out there. We account for 1/3 of the houston texans opponents, but 2/3 of the points scored against them.

Remember, this was a "defensive" test. I felt our defense improved as the game went on, but the Texans D was really their downfall.

I thought we did too, 2nd half we played much better. Yeah once we found a certain hole in their d we really laid into them man.

Not even close. Until we address our OT's we will have plenty of room for improvements.

We've been really spoiled on offense under the Payton Reign...

But, we couldn't punch it in from the F***ing One (1) Yard Line!

Neaux, we gotta lotta room to improve...

I'll agree we do have a good offense.

Doesn't matter how good we are or get, there's always room to improve...

You're extremely wrong. Here are the stats.
2006 472 attempts for 1761 yards for 19 TDs and 3.7 ypc vs 554 pass attempts
2007 392 attempts for 1466 yards and 14 TDs and 3.7 ypc vs 652 pass attempts
2008 398 attempts for 1594 yards and 20 TDs and 4.0 ypc vs 635 pass attempts
2009 468 attempts for 2106 yards and 21 TDs and 4.5 ypc vs 514 pass attempts
2010 380 attempts for 1519 yards and 9 TDs and 4.0 ypc vs 661 pass attempts

We had our most success when rushing attempts were over 450 and pass attempts were under 600 in 2006 (nfc championship game) and 2009 (Super Bowl).

Right now we're on pace for 384 rush attempts and 693 pass attempts. That's not our "recipe for success" and it's certainly not what I would call "running the ball."
