The loss sucked. The score sucked. I haven't been back on the board until just now, and therefore haven't seen the collective Allbuffs reaction to the loss (except for one short thread). I'm oddly not as upset about this game as I was the other three losses. This is why: --We were in it until two minutes remaining in the third. It was the only game this year in which we looked like we could play SOME football in a loss. The score wasn't entirely indicative of the game, overall. This isn't our standard, of course, but it's progress. --I thought our O-Line made some real progress on pass blocking. Where the **** was the run-blocking? --We made solid adjustments at half, defensively, but our lack of production on offense ultimately doomed both sides of the ball. Those turnovers were killers. --Seriously, I didn't feel we were that outmatched--or at least we weren't physically pushed around the field, for the most part. The whole thing sucked, and our lack of offense remains concerning (particularly our rushing stats this week), but I saw progress. Now that you've all had two days to settle down, get the emotions and some of the pain out, please tell me what an asshole I am, and the perspective I'm missing with the my polyanna prognosis on a hard-to-swallow-loss.
