It suggest our offense might not tire out an opposition defense (i.e. pound and ground) in the way WM intended and we might benefit from hurrying up the plays somewhat? * We have one of the worst turnover margins in the SEC - you can't win games if you don't take care of the football! * Interestingly for such a stout defense, we don't generate many sacks or tackles for loss. I guess that's a scheme thing because it doesn't seem to have affected our overall production? * All in all, we're still scraping the barrel on offense and have been sliding further into the quagmire all season - it's a declining trend and remains so. I wonder how low we will finish? To say we need to 'evaluate' at the end of the season is worrying to me too. I guess WM is just biting his lip (you'd hope he can see what we can all see) but at this stage the entire offensive staff is in dire trouble. If we had even a semblence of a passable offense we could do so, so much better!
