Five possessions in the second half, five trips to the Charlotte end, zero points. all I need to know.
Can’t flunk them. Giving up the 16-play, 80-yard go-ahead TD drive was tough to watch, and the unit gave up 263 1st-half yards, yes, but it also had a few three-and-outs. Ultimately offense and special teams lost it.
SPECIAL TEAMS: F
Hyleck Foster had a 52-yard kickoff return, Keion Davis nearly fumbled a kick into the end zone from the 10 and Amareto Curraj missed a game-tying attempt. The placekicker position needs to be reexamined.
Can’t flunk Chase Litton, either. You can do worse than 32 of 46 for 262 yards, and he was victimized by 2 big-time drops.
Watching the defense botch the Jason Smith “Is he in or is he out?” substitution was enough for me. And what was up with Raylen Elzey in the game on a critical down?
Charlotte is better than it was a year ago, but you have to beat those guys. And the Herd went from being in the thick of the division race to facing a bowl-less season.
