Before anyone says “can’t you just enjoy the win?” I did, I loved it!!! but……
I can’t ignore the problems either, everyones been talking about how great our defense has been, and it has been when it’s been good but it’s also been bad when it’s been bad and last night it was bad.
We are lucky we played the Cowboys last night or I think we’d all be feeling a little different today, they were terrible!
48 miissed tackles from us and they never really threw anything at us because everytime they got in the red zone they dropped the pill, in fact their completion rate in the 2nd half was below 50% (38% at one point)
We’re in the top 5 for most missed tackles in a game TWICE!!
At 2nd and 5th position.
We won by 8, take Brooks runaway try away and remember the Cowboys bombed one then consider that most of our tries come from Cowboys errors inside their red zone and let that thought sink in.
I thought our attack was pretty ordinary, our kicking game was ordinary our goal kicking is an issue (despite Masters misleading stats)
48 missed tackles against a side who couldn’t hold the ball at either end of the field and completed less than 50% for 50% of the game is a concern.
I understand that 2 points at this stage is the most important thing but
I’m worried that the fact we won is only papering over the cracks.
