It seems like our Defense throughout the year has gone from aggressive and very active in the Utah game - to hesitant and extremely re-active this past game. How much of this do you guys think relates to giving up big plays and just trying to prevent that? I think if I were a DC on this team...and obviously our offense did play well this past game...but normally you would think if the D gives up a touchdown the offense can't come back from that. Going forward when we get more confidence in the O I think it will allow the D to become much more aggressive because we will know our offense can always put up points if we give up a big play or two. Unfortunately right now and this season, it's been a question of when is the offense going to sputter and have a few quick 3 and outs - causing the defense to just purely be backed up and playing soft.
