having down years in 2012?
Maybe Eli, Brees, Big Ben etc are just fatigued from having the games constantly resting on their shoulders, while all the lousy D's are incapable of even keeping a game close.
I could be wrong as hell, it's only a theory after all and I have no other possible explanations.
We blame the QB's for having lousy days, but if your D is leaky as a sieve and can't make even one decent stop to keep the game close.....and the opposition knows you have to throw the ball to get back into the game, how much success are you going to have on any kind of a consistent basis?
I'm just grasping at straws here I know, but I'm at a loss for answers here.
