Oline let up 4 sacks
Wide Receivers dropped passes
But for some reason, we won today and got blown out of seattle. What could possibly be the reason?
Oh - our QB actually did his job, managed the game, and most importantly didnt turn the ball over at all. 4 sacks, NONE of which killed the team because he didnt fumble.
The supporting cast didnt get better today (although Powell needs to be getting 20 + carries per week) what changed was the QB play....which really should end the debate of everyone else being blamed when sanchez plays poorly
I disagree with that. The running game was head & shoulders better today. Yes, the defense played reasonably well again and there were a few drops, but there definitely was a noticeable contribution by the RBs that wasn't there previously. And if you disagree, than all the MORE credit to Sanchez for overcoming it (I don't agree with that, I think the help is what led to a good game).
