Yikes... they had five DBs and they still couldn't stop those short out patterns from Minnesota? At this point, they might as well send the house to pressure the QB and let Vontae Davis cover any/all of the receivers.

It didn't seem like Benn had his head in the game this week. Too many mistakes at critical moments. And it's still frustrating to watch Juice pass up open runs for passes. What made them so good last year (and Texas in 2005) was the unpredictability of a mobile QB. Now, it seems like Juice tries to pass 99% of the time. In the process, he's getting sacked or losing the ball altogether. We have Donovan McNabb to thank for that, I guess.
