    Some numbers I just can't accept

    Worst defenses this season: (Points Allowed)

    Detroit Lions----------- (393) 32.8 ppg
    ST. LOUIS RAMS------- (360) 30 ppg
    Kansas City Chiefs------(340) 28.3 ppg
    Denver Broncos --------(319) 26.6 ppg
    Arizona Cardinals -------(313) 26.1 ppg
    San Francisco Whiners-- (313) 26.1 ppg
    Seattle Seahawks ------(311) 25.9 ppg

    * note * The entire NFC WEST is on the bottom of the league!

    The good news is our next 3 games are against our NFC WEST foes. Maybe just maybe our offense will get into the end zone a few times.

    Here's the real killer. I still have the GSOT days on my mind.

    Worst offenses this season: (Total Points Scored)

    Cincinnati Bengals---- -(151) 12.6 ppg
    ST. LOUIS RAMS----- -(159) 13.2 ppg
    Oakland Raiders------- (179) 13.8 ppg
    Detroit Lions---------- (203) 16.9 ppg
    Washington Redskins-- (208) 17.3 ppg

    *note*-
    Seattle Seahawks----- (216) 18 ppg
    San Francisco Whiners-(262) 21.8 ppg

    Just thought I would throw the Seahawks and Whiners in there because we will be playing each of them in the near future.

    What happened to our team?

    1. The talent got old.
    2. Their replacements were either headcases or lacked talent.

    IIRC, that would be the draft pick that landed Chris Chamberlain.

    As much as I like Ryan (how can I forget that game against houston!) I'd rather have a rookie with potential rather him as a qb backup

    I agree, losing 13-30 just sucks! Btw, speaking of the Houston game, does anybody know where I can find the highlights to that game? I really need to see something awesome from this team again!

    I suggest not calculating the point differentials. Then we are last.

    Complete and utter professional collapse.

    I would of also liked to keep Fitzpatrick for a couple more years just to see how he would turn out. It wouldn't have cost us much either. Being from Harvard, I'm sure he would of learned something from the veterans. Who knows what could of happened.

    I'm not sure if I can put links but the video is under nfl.com videos. Scroll down and click on the HIGHLIGHTS tab, then under the FIND tab, scroll down to the 2005 season and then look for Week 12 in the menu on the left side.
