I get what you're saying here but when your offense gets shut down for long stretches against bad teams, it's a meaningless statistic.

Just my own opinion, but yards are meaningless without points. Washington scored 33 unanswered today against our #1 offense...#1 offense is meaningless for that.

We're 8th in scoring offense w/25.5 per game, and we go in droughts with our scoring.

Nope. When I saw our defense damn near blow 2 20 point leads in back to back games I knew the rest of the season would wind up like today. We won't win another game unless we get the ball first and our offense is playing lights out.

Did I expect different? Damn right I did. A team should be improving throughout the year. The only thing they've improved on is the quality of suck.

Define droughts.

I'll bet we're near the top of the NFL in points per possession, fewest 3 & outs etc...

Our defense sucks. Its about as plain and simple as it could be. Our defense absolutely blows freaking chunks.

Because of Drew and his ability to release the ball quick. Strief gets destroyed by quick DE's. A fast move gets by him constantly. I am hoping Peat will replace him next year and Evans replaced by Kelemete or someone not 72 yrs old making 10 mil a year.

Most RT's get destroyed by quick DE's. its why they aren't playing LT.

Strief is currently middle of the pack for RT's. He's not as good as previous years, but he's not as bad as some are suggesting.
