I was at the game on Monday night, and I came away convinced that our defense can compete against the best the NFL has to offer. However, we can't have them out there constantly - the offense has to be able to sustain drives so the D can rest. Obviously Orton has a huge share of the blame (those picks killed us), but there were a lot of small execution problems that led to far too many second-and-longs.
