I wouldn't get too wound up about the defense. They performed remarkably well against teams such as USC and Stanford (not that Stanford's O is impressive, but they're not awful, and Taylor is incredible). Yeah, games like this are hard to swallow on all sides, but I think the D is genuinely better this year, and has shown it several times. It's the offense that truly looks humiliating, and a lot of that falls on a decimated OL and Keith Price.
What's sad is that I can at least believe that the OL injuries are a huge part of their problem.
No such excuse exists for Price. In fact, he was supposed to be healthy for the first time this year. And most of Price's struggles in the last few games have been about terrible composure and decision-making, as opposed to being under actual pressure.
Reminds me of David Carr.
