3 games in a row

Our defense has only allowed 7 points in the second half for 3 straight games

I know some of you may want to blame the D for nearly losing the game at the end but I don't think they were to blame, our offense did absolutely nothing in the second half

313 passing yards and 4 TD's in the first half
64 passing yards and 1 rushing TD in the second half

Our offense could not convert 3rd downs and kept giving it back to Tampa bay, I'm happy our d didn't give up more points because our O didn't help them much at the end of the game

We are climbing back up, atleast we got the W

Re: 3 games in a row

Defense got put in a hole early, tightened up quick. That one drive in the 4th quarter, with it seems like 20 penalties, had to gas them. I thought they played pretty well. Jenkins has to get a game ball, that's the type of play that can turn a season around (the TD saver).

Tough game next week at Denver. Going to have to stop Manning again.

Needs to be split with Lance Moore. He caught everything that was even close to him today.

Re: 3 games in a row

I don't mind them allowing on 7 points in the second half, if they stop giving up 21 in the first.

Re: 3 games in a row

Just imagine if the O and D played the entire four quarters.

Harper had a pick, and the refs blew that call. Bucs went down and scored. Not sure what the refs saw on the replay.

Harper SHOULD have stepped into that INT and not caught the ball like he was in 3rd grade - cupping it!

He did make the catch, but come on, it should NOT even be that close, he's a pro.

Through all the adversity, I thought the 3rd quarter with the goal line stand was one of the best quarters of football the D played all season, even with the tip ball run down the field. Lucky tip that turned to nothing.
