It looks like we successfully stemmed the flow of blood on special teams, at least for a game, but this offense has been bad 3 out of 5 games, really bad.
Remarkably, our defense has been our best phase on the football field. Vick was getting smashed all day and we finally started generating turn overs. I think if the offense had been even average in the first 3 quarters our defense would have played even better, but I think later on they started getting tired for all the stupid 3 & outs on our offensive side.
Stafford had his worst game of the year today, IMO. He was missing open receivers and couldn't find any touch on the ball. I think he was 6 and 21 at one point. Just brutal.
Calvin also was guilty of about 3 mental mistakes today which hurt the offense early on. That push off in the end zone wasn't needed. Stafford actually made a good throw on that pass. I think if he just goes up for it he wins that battle 8 out of 10 times.
The 5 yard penalties on both sides of the ball were mind boggling. I think we ended up wtih 15 or 16 penalties. That is enough for 3 games.
I can't believe we won.
