If Locklear starts at RT, all the INT-causing pressure (and maybe even some of those sacks) wouldn't be given up. 2 of Cincy's TDs came on super-short field given up by interceptions that wouldn't have happened. 14 point swing right there.

If those drives had continued, we would have scored ourselves. Assuming our offense puttered out in the red zone like it usually does, let's assume those drives are FGs. 6 point swing.

If we didn't dig ourselves into such a huge hole and were only down by 1 TD late in the fourth, Eli would have activated his 4th quarter magic and scored a TD with under a minute left in the game. 7 point swing.

14+7+6 = 27.

We lost 31-6, or 25 points.

We could have freaking WON this game, all other things being equal, if only we didn't start ****ing DIEHL...

We weren't stopping that offense yesterday. I don't care how much field they needed to go to score; they were going to. Diehl shouldn't be starting though, but this game was hardly all his fault.

nice if it was that cut and dry but its not. Deihl should be there but you can lay the game on him alone....not even close.
