Once they got that like you say Montreal backed off but I think by then we're also more interested in prevent rather than playing agressive D. Montreal did to us pretty much what the Lions did. Bring pressure on every down.
The lack of quickhitter game just serviced the Als being able to do that. Why not bring heat everytime when we're not coming up with an answer.
Of course, unlike the J&J rejects, Nichols actually tries to throw the ball to the best offensive player on the team.
