As easy it may be to blame Tebow, his mistakes were not the biggest reason we lost today. Take a look at the scoreboard.
This Defense just played its worst game hands down. Came out unprepared. If their was one key reason that we lost this game it would be because of the yards we gave up on first down. The lions got like 8 yards a pop on first down. Do you realize how easy it makes it for the offense when they are in 2nd and short?
This is mostly due to coaching. Dennis Allen has been a great hire but he did not prepare these guys today.
Many of you like to put the blame on one person and that guy up there was the biggest reason we lost. Not the only reason, the biggest reason.
In his defense, his unit has been stellar throughout the year. To me our defense has only lost this game for us. Even in the Packers game they kept us in it but our Offense just made critical turnovers.
Anyways our D came out uninspired and were getting beat for 8-9 yards almost every other play. They need to play better on first downs like they were in our past games.
Chris Harris is really active and aggressive. He is a real good tackling corner and is very physical in coverage. Reminds me of Brandon Flowers.I like him and Squid at the nickel next year.
Safeties Rahim Moore, Quinton Carter and Brain Dawkins were very quiet today. Miscues and bad blitzes that we had previously had success on were picked up by the Lions. I think their by week helped them a lot because they had our guy covered when they blitzed almost every time.
Tim Tebow played bad but he was in no way the biggest reason why we lost today. Started off brilliantly, probably practiced the first drive a lot because it was excellent.
Eddie Royal played bad today. This guy hasnt shown me anything. He rarely gets any separation and really struggles in man coverage. His body language was also really bad today. Didnt look like he was giving it a 100% but I could be wrong, just a feeling I got.
Looking for the biggest reason our offense failed today? Look no further. Franklin was abused today just like last week. The guy might be our best run blocker but he is our worst pass protector. Entire O-line got beat today but Franklin was the worst of the bunch.
Guess where Knowshon was today? Know-where to be found. This guy is getting on my nerve, dancing around after a 5 yard game. Didn't do squat today.
