Perhaps more than most flyhalves, Ford needs quick ball to be effective and he's not getting it. England improved against France when Owen Farrell switched from inside center to No. 10 and Ford was taken off in the 60th minute, and Jones may start that way against Ireland.
James Haskell, who as a third-quarter replacement provided the type of power that had been missing, cites a difference in emphasis between club and worldwide rugby as the source of the problem.
"So that's the same thing as us losing a game here or there, a couple of things not going right, but we still believe we're good enough and we would be".
"We understand what the problem is and we understand how to fix it". You've just got to soak it in and prepare as best you can.
"It's a sizeable but fixable problem". He seems like he's in his own world, keeping his head down.
"We're not in any cycle. Any team that is developing, as we are, gets through these tough periods when the game does not love you", England coach Eddie Jones said.
"I hope it is the former and that a few more strong words from Jones and some serious soul-searching will act as a corrective".
"I don't think we'll fall into that trap, definitely not". If I thought I was hard done by [in the past] I would probably be thinking there were no improvements for me to make in my game but everyone has got improvements.
"We're being exposed in certain areas at the moment".
"We're about 2 or 3 per cent from where we needed to be today", he added. "I don't think we should get too carried away or too melodramatic about where we are". We said as a group we want to achieve something. There's no such thing as a cuddle or a bollocking. They're going to have a lot to play for, a lot of pride as well.
It's important to take, as much as possible, an unbiased and autonomous view on how Ireland have performed since they lost to Wales at the Principality Stadium past year to really get an understanding of where this team now stands and where they could potentially end up. "We're all disappointed, we're all gutted".
It earned Ireland a bonus point which means England must beat France, and score a four-try bonus point, in Paris later on Saturday to keep the title race alive.
But Eddie Jones' team didn't play like a side needing to score four tries to force a championship decider in a Twickenham head-to-head next week.
