I think this is what they call a "turn around"...

On a related note, an increase in ice cream consumption has led to an increase in gang-related violence.

As well as the Song "White Christmas" has led to an increase in gang-related violence.

You are what they call a "dumbass".

Correlation does not imply causation.

it does somewhat, because the defense isnt on the field as much thus fresher in the 2nd half. not as many 1st half 3 and outs. come on now hamas

We lost TOP by 7 minutes in the Jets game
It was even in the TB game
We lost it by 10 minutes in the SD game
It was even in the Saints game
We lost it by 10 minutes in the Buffalo game
We won it by 10 minutes yesterday.

The defense was not completely exhausted by the 4th Qtr, which I think can be attributed to the offensive resurgence. The return of Johnson and the unexpected good play of Boiman, Babin and Legget is also helping.

Yeah cuz scoring 13 offensive points is a blitzkrieg. The raiders and in particular Russell handed us this victory like they wanted better draft position. They lost we did not win that game.

Yeah, because having three games where we lose the TOP by a significant margin and don't get gashed isn't enough to disprove this harebrained theory.

Yep. If we don't do better in coverage against the Broncos next week, we're going to give up 40+.

well that sure answered my question. maybe the defense sees a REASON to play harder, you know we have a CHANCE to win some games, incentive

Frankly, the defense, and the offense have both played better lately. IMHO, this is attributed to the fact that they are so young, and the experience is making them better players. It is also helping, that the injury list has shrank.

Well the turnaround may be starting, W's on Road in Dungver , home vs. Chargers, home vs. SandyEggo, @"the Natti" ....

so 2-4 with good showings in all games, I will start to believe.

I think teams see our lack of pass rush just too hard to pass up. Of course our D looks somewhat better, not only have we had some first downs in the first half, we have actually lead a good chunk of the games at half time. Without the turnovers though, we really haven't done a very good job of stopping anyone.
