Also in 09' they lost to the browns 13-6. They got 2 FGs by their offense. The defense allowed 1 TD in the 2nd Qtr. Didn't give up another point the entire game.
They lost to the rats with Dixon playing QB. He threw a pick that setup the game winning FG. Yes, the defense sure gave that one away. They gave up 3 points in the entire 2nd half. In the KC game that year the STs gave up a TD on the opening kickoff, one Ben Int lead to a FG (-1 yard drive). Yes, the defense gave up a long TD drive in OT but blaming them for the loss is a stretch.
They lost to the bungles that year 18-12. 4 FGs and Ben plays a horrible game. 50% comp. 0 TDs and 1 pick. He threw 40 times with 20 completions. Hard to lose 4th qtr. leads when you don't have them. Again Ben isn't a 40 pass guy. He needs a running game. They lost in 09' because the offense was 24th in the league in points. Yes, the defense wasn't great but that's what I'm talking about. IF the defense isn't great and the running game is below par then Ben can't get it done.
