The 3 & outs in the 1st qtr are no excuse to me for the D's performance. They weren't good last year no matter what the score until some personnel changes were made.
Yeah. That 7.3 point average the defense gave up for 16 first quarters seems unsurmountable when your offense is scoring zero.

Next I just went back and look at the scores from last year in the first 5 games, and what I found seemed pretty normal offensively.

This is so stupid, it hardly even needs a response. How does someone say they are showing stats from the first 5 games of the season, glosses over main points. Those being, in the Seattle game, the DEFENSE had 3 takeaways, and the offense still managed only 7 points for the game. OR how about the fact the score was 14-7 in the second half, until Brooks throws an INT giving Seattle the ball in their own red zone to start.

In the Ari game, did we forget Brooks' goalline fumble? Or the fumble by I think Donte on the reverse? Then he picks games where the defense did hold teams to practically no score in the first quarter. How do you find stats that disprove the point you are trying to make? What a joke.

Let me find a small quote:

And then the flood gates open in the fourth.
Seattle beat us 21-7. So if it was 21-7 at the end of the third, what flood gates opened in the 4th? Ridiculous.
