    Sometimes the opposing defense actually plays well enough to stop you - even the best offense doesn't score on every drive.

    Does anyone feel like the efficiency of our offense is actually a problem? We're almost too good. We come out on the field and score in like 2 to 3 minutes and then it's right back on for the defense.

    It's only an issue when your defense doesn't force the opposing team to punt at any point in the game. The Cowboys had ONE punt today. ONE. In the third quarter.

    If the defense makes one or two other stops and the offense continues to score you could be looking at a 3 score differential today.

    Sure, I get that. By the same token, we have no clock management anymore. Score wise, we're even, but our terribad defense has to play a lot more. They're already struggling and now we're forcing them to struggle more.

    I understand that it's a catch 22, but I'm just putting it out there

    Last year's 2 Super Bowl participants were both bottom 5 defenses...one of which was one of the worst pass defenses in NFL history.

    Sure. But when you keep scoring, clock management becomes less of an issue. If the defense makes a couple key stops today, and the Ravens score off them, then you aren't as worried about it.
