You call 2 points (8 if you count a garbage time TD) against your biggest rival in the biggest game of the season so far a smooth running offence? Philosophically, our offensive play calling was far too conservative. With the talent we have at QB, receiver, and O-line(in terms of pass protection anyways... Ray has had lots of time and the unit is currently 3rd in least sacks allowed), anything short of a dominating performance game in and game out is unnaceptable.
The defence obviously needs a lot of work, but you have to remember we have been missing our start MLB the past 4 games or so, as well as other countless injuries(Gordon, Amos, Robinson missing signifcant amounts of time). Richie hand picked Daley as his d-coordinator and probably feels that the schemes Daley is using can be succesful and that our defensive problems lie more in the personel(see two d players released in the last two weeks - and probably some NFL cuts coming in).
