It wasn’t so much they made mistakes it was more they didn’t execute to the fullest. Bagg dropping that perfect pass that he easily scores on, Allen trying to run not once but twice before securing the catch. Dressler even dropped a very catchable ball.
These are the plays that could have changed a team being 1-11 to perhaps at least 500. It isn’t usually just one play but a combination of plays that you don’t execute to the fullest that cost you a game. Riders got a bit lucky in that these didn’t come back and haunt them but it easily could have. Against a team like the Stamps you probably don’t get away with it. So yes still some issues to clean up.
The defense was very solid except for when they went into snooze mode. God I want to kick whoever decided to play that way right in the fur sack. It just undoes all the hard work you did all game.
You have dominated an offense all game and then you let them gain momentum? Hell no, you get them down and you get them second guessing, then you get them starting to doubt, that is when you go for the kill shot instead of letting them get back up.
Yes it’s cold,it’s harsh, but it’s what good team do. You never, ever, allow the other team to gain momentum that they didn’t earn.
