That's only 3 drives in the entire game over 25 yards.
Man, they really sucked it big time! Of course, our D had a wee little bit to do with that also. Tough to say which was the biggest contributor, them not showing up, or us performing above expectations.

It was all the wind. The wind, I say....
"A compass, I learnt when I was surveying, it'll... it'll point you True North from where you're standing, but it's got no advice about the swamps and deserts and chasms that you'll encounter along the way. If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead, heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp... What's the use of knowing True North?"

Without a doubt, the wind was favorable for GT. I was really happy when I turned the TV on and saw those flags ripping. I knew that passing was their bread and butter and running their change of pace. The opposite is true for us. We have shown time and time again that we can win games with no passing at all. So I don't want to pretend that it made no difference. Having said that, I still feel like we outplayed them and the result would have been a win for GT on a calm day as well.
