Good point, but it all starts up front. If we had a pass rush, opposing QBs wouldn't have all damn day to "find" recievers to expose our terrible secondary.

Re: Defense let us down!

anytime a team scores 31 points and loses...problem has to start with the defense...

Totally, see how many playoff teams allow 30 plus points?? It should be a short search. That has always been the knock against Betts. He coughs up the rock at the WORST moment.

I agree about our D given up that many points but after our score early in the 3rd our O did nothing to held our team until late into the game. Betts almost had as many yards as our entire O.

Sean Springs is obviously a true leader on our D. As soon as he got hurt it was like out D didn't know what to do... they lost there way.....

There are some leaders on this team that we cannot do without and Springs is one of them, Portis is another....

Betts has cost us another game...first, if I had the holes he had I could run for 1000, not one of those 1000 yards goes to him it is his offensive line...when have you ever seen Betts put a move on someone. Second, he is the most fragile runner I've ever seen who goes down at the slightest bit of contact. Third, he can't pass block to save his butt. Fourth, can all of that "should we move portis crap" if he was healthy with the way the offensive line was playing he'd have 3, 000 yards. Fifth, if we were smart we would have traded Betts butt and tried like hell to sign a beast in Duckett; for real, who gives a crap if Betts can catch out of the backfield if someone ain't open with the damn recievers we have everyone should be cut...we shouldn't NEED a pass catching back!!! Betts should have beed traded!!!!
So , with the same OL , why didn't portis run for 3,000 yds last year or in 04 when he averaged less than 4 yds per carry ? Portis is a better player , better picking up the blitz , more explosive , but he is not even close to 4.5 yds a carry . Honestly who cares if some fans like Betts as much or more ? I just hope they can score some damn tds on a regular basis next year . maybe fans should be asking why our Wr's have done nothing this year , not bash the one guy carrying the load every week .

Re: Defense let us down!

The defense has been a letdown all season. We shouldn't be surprised at this point, I'm just numb from disappointment.
