We get a lead. I was just thinking about this bc of the thread about the better offense between the Giants and Saints.
When we get a lead, it seems we become more conservative. I think it has a lot to do with we've been a team with turnovers. These past few years, ive been more trusting of the offense in situations i never was, like 3rd and longs.
I think thats why when we get leads, we become more conservative for ball control and not to really risk anything. A classic, and ****ty example was vs philly in the meltdown. We became a different team trying to run the clock down so we wouldnt run it over. Turns out that when we needed to turn the offense back on late, we couldnt. They were out of rhythm.
I think that tc handled the philosophies well in the past, and even now. I have no issues with him, im a big fan and respect him. But our offense seems to be able to execute all game in closer games, when we get a lead, should we be more aggressive like NO? They arent worried about tunovers as much bc they know they will execute and arent worried a turnover will be able to beat them bc they score a lot being so aggressive.
I trust the offense enough to where i think we could still just run the offense as if it wasa 0-0 and not have to go into convervative 3 n out mode.
I think that issue is the only reason we arent like the top offensive team. Yes i know a top ten offense and kg has made me eat crow, but we could be a top 3 offense consistently with the talent we have....
But i think tc doesnt care about that really, and theres no need to amp it up when ahead bc we do have a history with turnovers and tc is big on ball control...
Just supposing about why NO and NE etc etcto have better offenses
