    What I've noticed is we lack the patience on offense that we used to have. In the first few possessions we are a little more patient and seem to be able to move the ball. After some success we get impatient and try to force plays that just aren't there. The beginning of tonight's game we seemed to be making an effort to spread the ball around and it was working, but as games wear on we fall back to run on first and force it to Welker or Moss.

    Yeah, but it's more than just that. We used to be happy with five yard gains working our way down the field to set up the bigger plays. Now that seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Even in the last drive the screen to
    Morris worked and set up the next play which was the long pass to Aiken, but we immediately followed with a slow developing play which resulted in the sack/int. If we had methodically worked the sidelines to get to midfield the pressure really starts to mount on the defense.
