Five losses by three points. A merry-go-round at running back.

A quarterback who couldn't stay upright. A star safety and linebacker who couldn't stay healthy.

He wasn't anywhere near being "right" for the rest of the year after getting fallen on by Hali and Houston.

When Ben went down he was having his best season ever. I expect more of that this year.

Comes down to being able to run the ball when the D knows your gonna run it.
