One thing to consider this week, and this is NOT a bust on Iowa, but, Shonn Greene cannot even compare to Eugene Jarvis. I'm not defending our defense because we all knew with the losses along our DL that this could happen - it is....our DL is giving up way too many running lanes and good running teams will exploit that.
But, Eugene Jarvis is an NFL caliber RB he's already on the watch list for next years draft. He's the highest returning rusher in the nation (had almost 1700 yds last year) and with that type of quantity your gonna give up yards against a quality back.
The thing that jumped out at me was the third down conversions and some that were long 15-19 yards. Your defense needs to be able to stop those.....
I know everyone will be looking at giving up 139 yards to Jarvis is too much, but, this was a veteran line with a stud rb, give our D a chance. Hopefully, we've been vanilla on defense holding something back for our super bowl!!!!:biggrin:
