Disagree completely. We had very few garbage time games. Most of our losses were in the final minutes.

Garbage time to me means the game is over and a team puts up yards/points with the end game already decided - either in a winning or losing situation.

To me we had a good bit of that type of offense this year - in a losing effort. I could be mistaken and would have to have the courage to go read the drive summaries of each game. At least for now I can't stomach it.

I did, and "garbage yards" were a tiny fraction of our totals. Its totally insignificant.

In fact, if you subtracted every single yard we gained in the 4th quarter versus Dallas, Cincy, Baltimore, Carolina #2 AND Atlanta #2 we'd still finish in the top10.

Think about that, EVERY single 4th quarter yard gained in these five supposed garbage games and we'd still be top 10.

Cool...I take your word for it. Our Offense is top ranked even with a crappy OL and a top 5 turn over rate. Someone said earlier we didn't play complimentary ball...may have been you...and that I agree with. We didn't help each other out through out the year. We never seemed to play with a lead except a few occasions, I recall our Offense starting out slow (even when we didn't we were snake bit and would turn if over in the redzone). I guess my overall issue with the Offense is the damn turnovers, OL and drops. On Defense nothing worked.

Interesting ... media/sports writers had him headed to Nashville (Vanderbilt)?
I wonder what changed?
