The defense got bailed out today by the mere fact that Carolina didn't aggressively attack them. These freaking guys suck ****. Kerrigan was "inactive" again.
But let's not limit the blame to the defense. The offense has been awful lately. They've been decent on the ground but they have no passing game to speak of. They have two basic plays they run over and over again. They have the bubble screen that teams don't respect because they don't threaten deep so it's basically a useless play and more so when you run it to Brandon Banks.
And then they have the play option out of the wishbone/pistol/option for a slant 12 yards or so down the middle of the field. There is no intermediate passing attack. Their passing offense looks like a preseason offense. By now teams have seen enough film to at least slow down the threat that Griffin poses. And the coaches don't get let off the hook either. Jr makes baffling playcalls at critical times. Calling a bubble screen 5 yards from the goal line is freaking moronic and especially when you target a 5'6, 150 lbs receiver. And then a sweep on 4th down and goal without any other option when Griffin's TD runs have been successful up the middle! WTF!
I don't see how this team can win another game. They may have a shot at winning in Cleveland but even that's questionable.
