I was very encouraged by the play of Threet, he made some very nice throws and really didnt make bad decisions IMO. Special teams was awful, you eliminate the two fumbles in our own ten yard line and you have yourself a one touchdown game. I can see the offense gelling which is a good sign, but at the same time the defense sort of imploded. The secondary played very questionably, although some of the PI calls were bs, but stevie brown is a major major liability. I think our defense struggles with big pounding backs and yes I agree the Carson Butler penalty was bone headed. Did anyone notice the Barwis effect though seeing lineman run down secondary players?
