Still have number 2 passing offense in the league

And number 6 rushing according to wwl which cited NFL.com. Number 2 passing offense IN SPITE OF poor receiver play and a number 6 rushing offense along with good balance between the two is a winning formula. The only thing killing our offense is turnovers, specifically stupid turnovers. If there is a bright side it is that stupid turnovers can be fixed with better decision making. Fix that along with a few less drops by receivers and we can be just as deadly as ever on offense.
Our defense is another story.
Here is to coming out of the bye a more focused and disciplined team.

Yeah I'm thinking if our defense resembled even a mediocre squad, Drew wouldn't feel the need to make something happen on every possession and make some of the dumbest throws I've ever seen him make.

And we'd also be 4-1.

Yep. The last time we saw this exact same play from Drew was in 2012 when Spags was DC. He is a competitor and just wants to make things happen. Hopefully he turns it down a notch.

Re: Still have number 2 passing offense in the league

Our crappy, underachieving, stupid INT, ball forcing, ball dropping offense is still better then most of the NFL.

Bobby Hebert (yes I'm quoting Bobby) said that Drew needs to stop the stupid mistakes because he gets paid too much and people don't want hear it happening - Drew should never let a loss or errors come down to him.

I tend to agree with that. We're a couple stupid mistakes away from being 4-1.

Exactly. Imagine how awesome it would be if only about half of those balls would have been dropped. I really don't get it why everyone seems to have the dropsies this year.

I agree and that's why I can't blame Drew this year. I have seen more drops this year then I've ever seen before from this team. Don't even get me started on Colston....

But we're not alone. Games I saw Sunday were brick hands galore. I find this to be a very strange football season. If I predicted the Cowboys to beat the Seahawks, Cowboys to beat us down, Ole Miss and Ms. State to be top 5, much less Miss State #1, people would have put me in a mental institution. Not that there's anything wrong with MSU at #1 or Ole Miss, it's just nothing anyone expected. I'm totally willing to accept other SEC West teams on top.

But Cowboys? Romo? Gee wiz....

Re: Still have number 2 passing offense in the league

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Our WR production dropped significantly when Curtis Johnson left for Tulane. I dont know what he did while he was w the Saints, but he did it right. He turned a low round draft pick into a stud (Colston), a burner w undependable hands into a clutch receiver (Henderson) and an unknown into an overachiever (Moore)
