Correction, we had 9 in the box on the final play. There were no safeties back and the WR only had to outrun Ike to break free when even one safety would have slowed him down. This was the story on all the big plays. I love Saint LeBeau and never question his experience but the defensive gameplan against the Donkos was dumbfounding. With that said, im not going to call for his immediate retirement.

My biggest off-season goal would be to put together an OL and running game that can eat clock and score TDs in the red=zone.
