    Re: 2014 Defense

    How many games has the opposing offense scored on the first or second drive?

    How many games has our offense scored on the first or second drive? I'll help you out and let you know it hasn't at all on the first drive.

    That's nice. But I'm not sure what that has to do with our defense.

    Essentially the offense has given them zero help. Defense isn't good, but there numbers are grossly elevated due to the awful offense.

    True. I'm just not sure how many wins the defense is good for if we had even just a subpar offense. If our offense was considered "average" I think we would be looking at our defense as the weak side of the ball.

    Opponents have scored on one of the first two drives in 6 of our 8 games. Keep in mind a lot of the time having a solid initial game plan hasn't usually been Wally's strength, making adjustments has been.

    Between the two, our D was the more suspect side coming into the season. Most people knew the inexperience and lack of depth in our front 7 was a concern. And most knew that a successful season depended on the offense. For once, our offense needed to step up and carry the team. And it hasn't.
