"To Fall Off That Much, I Think It Has To Fall On Coaching"

So, the game last weekend against the Dallas Cowboys went about as expected:

  1. Dak Prescott balled out, throwing for 444 yards and 3 touchdowns.
  2. Due to a combination of injuries and lack of talent/motivation, the pass rush is almost non-existent.
  3. Matthew Stafford is injured and can't save the day.
  4. The secondary allowed over 400 yds.

The good news is, Jeff Driskell has been playing pretty well. He threw for 209 yards and 2 touchdowns with no interceptions!

The bad news is...it doesn't really matter.

Right now, the focus is on the defense. If Matt Patricia is such a great defensive mind, why is the defense so bad?
