Hey Bengal Lovers,

There has been a lot of talk about our offensive "woes" which I think is largely legit.  But check this scoring trend out against teams we're favored to beat...

Scoring by half

Week 2: First- 21, Second- 10

Week 4: First- 14, Second- 9 (including OT)

Week 6: First - 17, Second - 0 (granted we lost this big but we were up in the first half)

Week 7: First - 31, Second - 14

Week 9: First - 17, Second - 0

Week 11: First - 14. Second - 3

Week 12: First - 13, Second - 3

Week 13: First - 17, Second - 6

 

Anyone else notice a little trend?  We're slowing down more than a skinny kid on seconds.  While I do think our "O" is missing Hoosh and Henry, I'm going to re shift the blame for our sluggish offense to our second favorite whipping boy Bratowski (M. Brown being the first) away from Purify, Coats, and Coles (though clearly these guys have not produced to par).  Our game plan is pretty obvious, once we get a two, maybe three score lead we go all Rush Limbaugh conservative and run the clock to zero.  Thus I think that we are a better offensive team than perhaps we let on.  As for the other games, they were trend changers mostly  because we still needed to score in the second half, something we accomplished numerous times when necessary.

Anyways Bengaldom, do you have any thoughts?  Do you agree and/or disagree that most of our "problems" stem from game planning rather than personell?
