Re: The Good and the Bad...

The Good:
Offense. Everything about the offense was what I expected; Cooks looked great, rushing attack was alive and Brees looked on target with plenty of time to throw. Play calling could have been better, I would have liked to see more running plays.

The only, and I do mean ONLY bright spot on defense was our ILB play. After watching the game over again Lofton and Hawthorne played really well aside from the Rogers TD. This is odd because everyone including myself thought they were the weak-spot.

The bad:
Defense. DBs and the D-line played awful. In-fact they played worse then the 2012 team did at any point during that season. Not kidding here, this defense gave up more yards in week 1 than our 2012 defense gave up in any game all year (and they were the worst ever).

Wow, okay. I guess we're supposed to score a TD on every possession. Because that has happened, to any team, ever...

Why do we even carry a kicker on our roster?

News flash: We scored 34 points. On the road. The offense was NOT the problem, today. I'll give you the turnovers, but having to settle for a FG every now and then is just a fact of life.

Its not deceptive and while I can hit a moving target, it is a little more difficult, but I can still hit it.

They were still the 25th ranked defense in yards and 20th in points allowed in 2009. Russell Wilson put up 310 yards and 3 TD passes on them. Our defense of 2009 was opportunistic, not lock down.

You were happy with last seasons defense weren't you? 24th in turn overs.

What is your focus? Yards, points, turnovers...

I do believe we forced a turnover yesterday.. no? The original statement was that we couldnt win in the playoffs with out a defense. Yes we can.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: The Good and the Bad...

People really need to get off the nut sack of the 2009 season.
Starting to sound like Cowboy/49'er fans...

Not saying the 09 defense was better, just a turn-over machine and that helped us win.

2010 and 2013 defenses were far better than 09'.

If I had my choice for the defensive focus it would not relate to turnovers. Lock them down and make them earn every inch, turnovers will come.
