Over half of Edmonds’ yardage came on three plays. The defense did a decent job most of Day containing him.
He had over 400 all purpose yards himself. Can you describe how many yards Edmonds would have had if we didn’t do a decent job containing him? 500, 700, 1000?
The defense was totally incapable of tackling him in space.
There are some positive signs like Mayes who looks like he can stretch the field. However, the defense and turnover margin are killing this team. The offense doesn’t value the ball enough and the defense just doesn’t ball hawk enough to cause TOs.
Edmonds was contained MOST of the day. The three explosive runs were the killers. Had the D not lapsed on those three plays and the offense not turned it over so much, we win.
