Our offense didn't move the ball out of their own 15 during the last half. Unless you expect our punter to boot one 80 yards, there wasn't much we could do from keeping the Bear's out of scoring position. Obviously, our special teams unit sucked, that was plain to see. But our lack of offensive production in the 3rd and 4th quarters didn't help either.
The post by n4ry4 in the Time for Stan Kwan to go thread had some interesting stats showing our return game was solid, but stopping the other teams return game was really poor. This makes sense since it mirrors the Lion's own offensive and defensive production. We can move the ball nicely on offense, but on defense can't stop anything. Since the same players are out there on the return team as on offense, we should move the ball on a kick or punt. And since our defensive guys go out there on a punt or kick, it makes sense we can't stop anyone.
So I can't blame special teams for the entire loss. I think it shows that our team lacks talent in some major areas and until this gets corrected, we'll continue to see games like this one.
