What I'm saying today: I didn't get to watch the game live, but DVR'd it. The game was dull and I fell asleep by the end of the first half. (Hey, waking up at 6 a.m. does that to you.) From what I did see, a lot of the first half problems again stem from the fact that Braylon Edwards isn't catching the ball. He dropped three catchable passes that would have continued drives. If he can't get things together, and quick, the offense will continue to sputter.
On the plus side, Shaun Rogers and Brodney Pool played pretty well. They may have stunk it up in the second half, though. I don't know. Luke may or may not have more thoughts on the game at some point.
