This team is getting harder to watch. Being a loyal fan, I can't turn it off but this is bad football all the way around.
For my own good I might have to stop watching this season.

Well for the 1st time he didn't under throw the ball but on 4th and 1 why go deep especially with a QB who is incapable of making a throw.

Dude, this is not a great defense. But, they are not doing terribly. They have to go out there series after series knowing that their offense probably isn't going to do anything. What do you expect will happen long term. The defense has not been stellar, but the failure is on the offense.
they play soft physically, can't stop the run and get no pressure on the QB. They are a bad defense. The offense sucks too but the reputation that this defense is valiantly playing hard while the offense sucks is not earned. Not what I am seeing on the field.

IMO, it was gutsy call that if it would have worked everyone would be calling it a great call. Detmer took a gamble and lost.

Tonga made a great play on a short field.

Tonga is a good player. Has a huge upside. We have a bunch of good players on defense but they are not playing good defense. That is on the coaches.

This is all a matter of semantics. I totally agree that the defense is not great. At the same time, they are not a bad defense. They have plenty of areas where they could and should be better. But I guarantee that if our offense would show some life, we would automatically see defensive improvement as well.
