We almost gave the game away

We are very lucky our D kept it up on the last Carolina drive, because those two false start penalties almost killed us. The game plan at that point was simple, run the ball and make them burn timeouts. Instead we get two false starts. Unacceptable. It is an insult to Gibbs and the defense, because they worked very hard to keep the Panthers in check. If we had lost this game, that would have been one of the points that would have been brought up.


And on a side note, I think this may have only be me, but did we get away with a pass interference? To me when Jake chucked that ball up, Smith cut to the ball in the endzone, and was bumped way off route by Vernon Fox. Did anyone else catch that?

Re: We almost gave the game away

They were nervous at the end, but they pulled it out. Could have been cleaner there to run out the clock, but if that's all we have to bitch about, things are looking up!

I didn't notice a PI--the ball was "up for grabs" at that point, and Smith and Jake were on different pages--Smith was outside, Jake threw a post to Taylor. Would have been a VERY tough call to make at Fed Ex.

Yeah it would have been a tough call, but I have seen tougher calls made, so I was just wondering if anyone else caught the bump by V.Fox.

Unlike most fans here, I don't blindly follow my team. This was a good win because we dominated Carolina, unlike the Dallas. But at the same time, if we wanna finish strong we have to make improvements on silly mistakes.

I am not a tool who is just gonna sit around, I will be critical.

Re: We almost gave the game away

Actually, Gibbs himself pointed out the two false starts in his post game remarks. He was very critical for exactly the same reason as hoos--could have cost us.

But no buzz will be killed! We WON!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

we are really bad, if you think about it we should be 2-9, carolina and dallas were both pretty lucky wins.

Re: We almost gave the game away

We almost beat the the Vikings. We almost beat the Titans. We almost beat the Bucs. We're almost 7-4. "Almost" doesn't get you anything in this league.

We SHOULD have beaten the Vikings We should have beaten the Titans and honestly im furious we arent 7-4 right now becuase those are games we had and gave away like candy at Holloween.

but anyway there was no way steve smith could have gotten there no matter what you wanna say, Sean Taylor was showing some real spead getting to that ball

Call it what you want. However, Springs $#^$'d up on that pass to Smith. I was a CB, SS and utility DB. If the ball is in the air and catchable you are told to do anything necessary to make sure it will not be caught for 6. Call it dirty if you like, nobody ever said football was a fashion show. DB's are supposed to get half the distance to the goal instead of 6, period. Nothing dirty about it, just try not to get caught. PI is better than 6. Lest everybody forget its a bloody and vicious game. That is why you watch and love it. Watch tennis if you want to watch a non-violent sport.
Remember, it's called the Grid Iron

Re: We almost gave the game away

Even the most dominating team has plays they could have done better or would have cost them the game, or could have been called for P I, or should have been called, but were missed. SO WHAT!!!! we WON!!!! I mean c'mon. Just enjoy it. I think some of you would find something to complain about if you won a $100 million lottery jackpot.

Exactly.

We could play the coulda, shoulda, woulda game all day. In the end all that matters is whether you get the W or the L.
