My wife is pissed at me. She DVR’d “The Biggest Loser” and tried to watch it last night – ended up being the Vikings’ game.
What happened to pre-season Teddy? And Atlanta Teddy? Remember him? The one who could nail slants, hit runners in stride, and complete a pass more than 10 yards downfield? How do you go from a 300+ yard game to “trying to simplify things for the Rookie?”
Our Defense has been stepping up this year. They’re 14th overall in points allowed, and considering the teams we’ve faced, that’s saying something.
Offense? Offensive. Subtract the Rams and the Falcons games, and we’ve averaged 9 points per game. We’ve had so many injuries to the front line that we can now say Charlie Johnson, aka “The Human Turnstile,” is one of our better players, and THAT sucks. Whatever affliction Ponder has must be contagious. Teddy has been regressing this season, due in a large part to being planted up to his shoulders in the turf numerous times per game, and also in part because our WRs look like they’re running routes with all the enthusiasm of a teenager asked to pooperscoop the back yard.
One bright side on our offense is that our rushing game ranks #10, SANS Adrian Peterson.
Our Offensive line needs a major influx of talent. We could conceivably win enough games to get into the post season if we start scoring points again. Is that possible at this point in the season, or is it time to start narrowing down our 2015 top 10 draft pick? Because currently, we ARE who they thought we were.
