Let me first say, this is a good thread topic.
I do see what the thread starter is saying. But there are three keys to us making the playoffs.
1. Being able to run the ball which gives the team balance as a whole. It's obvious that when we run the ball, it's good for Ben, it's good for the defense being off the field and it establishes the team's identity too.
2. We've got to score more TD's in the red zone. If we continue to kick as many field goals that we do, it will come back to bite us in the *** as it did against the Titans and Raiders.
3. Coverage in the secondary has to improve. Period. This 10 yard cushion crap that we give to teams wide receivers has to stop!
