Where was our defense that played with a zealous fire only a week ago? Where was our defense that once swarmed to the ball to make a stop on a screen pass?
We did miss several opportunities. Eli's and Brandon's fumbles were boneheaded mistakes, and we suffered because of them. But I can't recall when our defense EVER stopped the Eagles, with the exception of the interception. I mean, the Eagles really stopped themselves: McNabb threw a couple of bad passes to wide open guys on a few third downs, and they weren't completed for first downs, but those weren't really wins by our defense. You say "Well I'll take a stop any way I can get it!" Well good for you - to me the defense outrightly SUCKED and I'd wager that the Valdosta High School Wildcats offense could score against the Giants' defense. I'm offended to even call it a defense at this point.
I surely hope the defense that played the Cowboys shows up again, and really soon. Or else it's back to the drawing board.
