I agree with your statements, but maybe I will say that the merging of the Fox system and the Manning system may have created the issues. We just couldn't finish the "run out the clock" scenarios against the Ravens when it counted. I understand that our injured RB's were a major factor, but we just couldn't push them around in the mile high air when the season was on the line.
To me, that means we either need work on the o-line, or we need to change our offensive theory. Maybe a little of both.
