Not sure, but it appears that our defense plays MUCH better against tougher opponents. It's as if they come onto the field with a bit of arrogance when playing inferior teams - and it comes to bite them in the a55. Jets, Cards, Bills (yesterday's game), etc..... all appeared to have played with too much leniency.... as if with the attitude of "ah...fck it, we're playing a crappy team, no need to put 100%". Then it comes to bite them in the a55, just for them to get a wake up call late in the 4th qtr in a desperate attempt to save the game. Sometimes it works (Bills yesterday, Jets), other times it doesn't (Cards, Seahawks). On the other hand, when they played the Broncos and Ravens, they put up a lights out performance. They showed more respect and accountability when playing better teams (Ravens game was lost due to the secondary indeed shooting itself in the foot, but also due to some shady replacement officiating, which otherwise should have been our win). The Denver game goes to show that our defense IS capable of putting up good performance. But their attitude is what ultimate decides the outcome. Thoughts?
