I'm not in disagreement with you on what's ailing the offense. I thought that was established.

The big problem with the defense is never, ever going to be any more evident than it was today. We had one three and out. Then the two turnover drives. THE GIANTS DID NOT PUT THEIR PUNTER ON THE FIELD UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF THE THIRD QUARTER.

We won't know for 5 weeks or so just how much of our defensive struggles today were because the Giants are a great passing team. Maybe none. Maybe a lot. But considering how thoroughly dominated we were through the air on defense, I don't see how anyone could not see the giant gaping hole on the team.

And no, the offense was not perfect. They made two costly errors, and couldn't open up any running lanes. But the passing game was the only thing that worked today.

So your argument is, "the defense sucks, but we should overcome them every time"?

Or you're just arguing for the sake of arguing.

Well, if all we did on offense is run Portis three times and punt, we might not have to worry about those damn turnovers. Unless we fumble.

Re: Defense = Disappointment

My argument is that the defense didn't suck as much as the offense. This loss cannot be blamed on the defense, certainly not more so than the offense.

In these matters I am never wrong. Have you explored the possibility that you're wrong?

What can I say? It's late and I've just been through some emotional trauma.

Yeah, but, it was kind of ridiculous and a complete waste of my time.

You kind of ran out of steam around the time you claimed that we got away from running the ball. The rest of the time, you've just been playing catch-up.

Theory: they stuck you with Rams-Seahawks out there.

For help in assessing your wrongness you might want to watch the Zorn press-conference on redskins.com.

I don't live on a mountain, we have sports bars out here too.

Seems like a bigger waste of time.

Praises the defense, admits the offense couldn't do shit up until the second half.

That's not good. The second half is when the offense reverted to past tendencies.

I guess someone has to stick up for the D tonight. I ain't doin it.
