If you’re wondering why Stephen Davis managed only 4 carries in Carolina’s 13-3 loss to Chicago yesterday — the Panthers first loss in nearly 2 months and the Bears’ biggest win in, I don’t know, a short lifetime? — losing coach John Fox has an explanation that should put your mind at ease.
Most of that was decided before we went into the game as far as packages and groups that we were going to use. That’s just the way it fell yesterday, just like there have been packages where we highlighted Stephen more in games prior to this. Some of it is based on personnel groups.
Does anyone have nearly as creative an excuse for how Washington — in a game they simply had to win yesterday — couldn’t fashion one TD against the porous Oakland defense?
