    Re: Time to question the defense

    I thinking we can question every single aspect of the team at this point.
    Turnovers
    Flags
    No D (AK47 just pic6!!!)
    No O

    But we did have a nice kick return

    Re: Time to question the defense

    Not trying to defend our defense as clearly it has some issues but when your on the field as much as they are what do you expect out of them?

    Re: Time to question the defense

    Our offense is still the bigger problem. I don't disagree, but first things first, we have to score points to win. Our D is getting us the ball, our offense just can't do anything with it.

    Re: Time to question the defense

    350+ yards and 31 points in the first half. Not good.

    It seems like since the Baylor game that our defense has tried to sell out against the pass and leave the running game wide open. And when it was blatantly obvious that it was a poor decision, we just decided to stick with it. And this is what we get.

    Yes, I'm sure they were really gassed after watching the opening kickoff.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    They have more points than our offense.

    Re: Time to question the defense

    You know, we gave up a lot of yards to Utah and OU last year in back to back games too. Stepped up against Texas right after that though. With our talent level, that's going to happen sometimes. Not the stepping up, the giving up yards... we just can't hang with the big boys yet.

    Re: Time to question the defense

    Hard to remember when someone just lined it up and throttled it down our throats for 10 or 15 yards every play. We know what they are running and can't stop it.

    Well, just have to regroup and try to get better for A and M. They just put up about 700 yards on Baylor, who we couldn't do much against.

    Re: Time to question the defense

    I can't believe just how terrible we are on defense. It's equally as bad as our offense right now.
