And even with that performance we lost the time of possession for the whole game by 3 minutes.
McGahee going out seemed to stop any consistancy by the O...but even before that , when M was balling ( 7 for 55), the team was not able to keep drives going, because they went to the pass too much.
MY issue was with the type of passes they were. Everything was within a few yards of the line of scrimmage....The strength of SD defense in my opinion. On TV I couldn't see the secondary play, but it looked to me like SD was daring us to take shots.
