With two games left in the season, both of which being played in metlife stadium, I couldn't be any less confident in this teams ability to win. We seem to just be shooting ourselves in the leg. With second half collapses, the way our defense is playing, and the lack of enthusiasm or fire on the sideline, there are just too many elements against us. Yet amazingly, we still are in control of our destiny. So how did we throw todays game away?
Today was the first cold weather game that we've had to play. There was wind, and as can be seen by the dropped passes from nicks and cruz, the cold weather was making it difficult for us on offense. I'm well aware at how we've been running the ball this season, but to only give it to brandon and ahmad 18 times?!!? Between bradshaw and jacobs we averaged over 5 yards on the ground! The redskins ran the ball 39 times! I know that we played from behind through the entire game, but our first drive after Websters interception consisted of three incomplete passes.
We have lost four out of seven games at home so far this year. Metlife is a nightmare. There is talent on this team, but we need someone to step up and provide some leadership and intelligent decision making to allow our play makers to make plays. Bradshaw needs to carry the ball far more than he does. Our DBs need more freedom to make plays on the ball and not have these blanket schemes where they're getting lost in what coverage they're supposed to run. I just cant help but feel like we continue to put ourselves in a position to not succeed. The benching of prince is the one smart thing that we did today, our defense has been worse with him and played much better and gave up only one score with him on the sideline. We need to not continue to put ourselves in a place to lose.
