And before someone puts up some silly defensive stats, the same thing goes on that side of the ball as well. The problem with being a Jekyll and Hyde team that can feast on the weaklings and get destroyed by the elites is that if you play enough weaklings those stats can overcome how bad things were against the better teams.
We all watch the same games. I think we know how bad we are on offense, defense, special-teams. Trying to find the smoking gun and say woo hoo look I found the single problem is a useless waste of time.
The other teams stack the box because they are daring MS to try and throw the ball. High % play as it is very likely MS will panic and miss the "Mark" or the play will result in a pick. MS is a useless waste of time.
