I thought back to the game, and though there were some key breakdowns, the guy certainly did not get any breaks - One TD was a result of a missed offsides call that caused the defense to slow down. Now sure, they should play hard to the whistle, but this was a blatant error that cost 7. Up till then, the D was doing OK. One TD was an interception, and they had double covered Allen (finally). But the double coverage collision caused a weird TD. Special teams TD was not Butler's D fault. That's 21 points that were maybe not the D's fault or just plain unlucky. The last drive for a TD was bad, as was the final drive for a FG - no excuse for that collapse. But if the earlier weirdness does not happen, the D probably has SD in a big hole and can play more aggressively. Not an excuse, but this thinking has calmed me down a bit.
