Unfortunately, they did have that opportunity and in those particular games, they didn't get the job done with the outcome on the line. I'm not blaming them alone for those losses but they share responsibility. Even if the offense has a bad game overall, if the team has managed to put enough points on the board to give the defense a lead to protect with one minute remaining (or even with 5 minutes left), isn't it incumbent upon the defense to do their job and protect that lead?mansquatch wrote:I dunno Jim, in the case of each of the games Kapp mentioned the Offense basically gave us nothing with constant blown possessions and three and outs. (The WSH game is another example.) In each of these cases had the offense sustained even one additional drive, then the TOP would have changed and the defense would likely not have had the opportunity to collapse late as it did in each of those games.
