Only a few things that bug me about today. - Xanthri - 01-21-2013 01:29 AM
first I am proud of how we did for the season...let me state that first.
There is no excuses here....only a few things that didn't really add up for me.
Anyone of them could change the outcome of the game (the truth is that botched snap is what really cost us the game IMO)
CK roughing the passer - REALLY there was no intent at all there.
a couple of missed PI calls (very short yardage but first down yardage both times)
No roughing the passer on that last tackle of Matt......I would not have had a problem with the tackle itself as I felt like it was a continuation....I have great heartache with the fact the guy wrapped then proceeded to drive through the tackle and drive Matt into the ground....THAT was FULLY an intent to hurt!
not scoring a point in the who second half....was just downright awful.....and we had 3 decent opportunities if not for 2 turnovers...and what i perceived as a couple of missed calls. All in all I felt more like we gave them this game then they took it from us.....Nolan gameplanned Kaep well, but failed miserably on covering the TE all day....it is what it is.....
I am done with football for the season....no plans to watch pro bowl, superbowl anything....until the draft.....i will check back here every once and awhile and i always enjoy chatting with the great fans on this board.....
As proud as i am of what they accomplished, a little bit of me died out on that field today......i know it is only a game....but I truly bleed black and red....i thought this was our season....
there are many questions i have about the team next year....but I will save them for later.....I think I need a break.....

The ref calls we cant control. no point worrying about that. CK roughing the passer although no intent its is a rule.
Now our half time adjustments are something they need to do something about as its been bad lately. Being able to, you know, score points in the second half would be nice addition to this team

like i said not excuses....just things i thought factored in....Turnovers were at worst possible time...both in FG range....2 FGs is the difference.....
I am not sure if it is bad adjustments or if our guys don't have the stamina......sure seems like we lack the steam sometimes......anyway....stay classy peeps....don't play the sad REFS KILLED US card....then we sound like whiners.....we didn't play for 60 minutes....and it showed....amazing how we can be so good for 30 then nonexistent in the second 30.....

Not covering a TE for 2 straight games bugs the shit out of me.
