Pivotal moments ... (1 Viewer)

Not here to bash the offense or defense ... I've seen both play relatively well and bad at times.

Just wanted to point out something that I have seen in our losses and something that has been visible to me since last season.

I think in a pivotal situation where it is a close game with under 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter , we should be in 4 down territory. Its hard enough to defend us on 3 downs. A 4 down mindset I think opens the playbook much more , cools the nerves , drains the clock , and puts the pressure on the defense to stop us , rather than for us to get it all in 3 downs.

We often try to get it in 3 plays , punt and never see the ball again or when we do get a hold of it have little time and no timeouts.

I think that adjustment alone is the difference between 0-2 and 2-0.

We keep sending our defense out there as if they're the Seattle Seahawks or Denver Broncos units.
