Second, those backup linemen were good enough to provide Delhomme with sufficient protection to allow him to go 5 of 6 on that drive and get the TD. They were doing their job on the scoring drive. What would make anyone think they wouldn't get the job done on the two pt. conversion?

So how would you have felt, as a 2nd or 3rd team player, having done the work to get the ball back, march down the field and score, only to have the coach yank you for the freakin' extra point? That's why Kubiak and Phillips have this locker room, they show that they believe in the "next man up" to get the job done.

Speaking of "feelings", I'll bet Dreessen feels pretty bad about that illegal motion thing on the conversion attempt. The way he jumped off the line, on that first attempt, I'm thinking he was the primary target. Even though we were in two-back, run formation, he sure didn't look like he was getting into a blocking stance. He looked to be headed to the end zone. And I bet it would have worked.
Oh Obsi, puh-leeze!

Some dude named Austin is at center and he's going to get his feeweens hurt if he gets yanked in favor of the starter, Chris Myers??? This is going to "lose the locker room" for Kubiak? Pretty poor talking point to choose, Obsi. If he doesn't understand the move, then he's dense. He should be thankful he has a chance at a Super Bowl ring. Where would a guy like Austin get the idea that he got robbed in that situation? LOL. A win is a win, deal with it Mr. Austin.

Instead, the situation looked like the last preseason game where Kubiak is evaluating players for who will make the roster and who won't. That was my beef with it: This is a regular season, divisional game with momentum to gain by closing out with a win. Instead, we whimpered out like we did when Schaub floated an easy interception into the end zone at the Raiders game this year.

Dreeseen, man I felt super bad for him. I guess the snap count was understood by everyone but him, or he thought he heard the final snap call get yelled out by Delhomme...regardless, "Yeah, it sucked that it happened to him when he's been pretty clutch for us these past few years. That's not in his DNA, and I felt bad for him."

Look, this is all getting tired and old. It's been beaten like a dead horse for two days now. A last little "dig" at the Titans and their owner would have been nice, IMO, but it is what it is and now we're looking at Saturday's game. Go Texans.

LOL. I know, right?

The Jags, Titans, and Colts fans on their message boards are talking about what off-season moves will happen with their respective teams. We know what THAT feels like, huh?

But not this year. This year, WE got another game! Woo-hoo!!!!!

Not going to dig through this whole thread so I may be echoing what someone else has said.....but there is no way in hell I would want to play the Titans in the 1st round.

They are a divisional opponent so they already know us too well to play 3 times. Also, can you imagine losing to the fuqng Titans in the playoffs?!?!?!?!?!

No effing thank you........I don't feel like having to throw myself off a bridge.

IMO it was asinine for Kubes to take an obvious "just another game" approach to yesterday. That is the same shit they pulled when playing the Cowfuqs.

I would rather play the Bengals or ANYONE else in the playoffs for our 1st time ever in the tournament with so many injuries and such a high chance of losing. Lose to the Tits in the playoffs....again....no thanks.

Going for the 2 after that penalty IMO showed that Kubes just wanted the game over.

I have a lot of thoughts on the game but don't have time to post them right now. I will say though that I am off the ledge as we are not going to play the Titans in the playoffs.

I might have to check out the other teams message boards and see if their fans are angry about sitting players. This year and previous years

I guess I am in the minority.. Screw the titans. They aren't that good and feel the texans would kick their ass if they played them

I am much more nervous about aj green,dalton and benson coming into town

Titans really don't have crap except Johnson

I don't know what is wrong with some of you.

As a fan base, we piss and moan for ten mostly miserable years, then when we are actually going to the playoffs, and have the luxury to make sure our starters that are banged up get some rest, yet people still find a reason to complain.

To GP (in re: putting the starters in for the 2pt conversion), yes, it's one play, just like the one play in TB were Schaub broke his foot. This is pro football where it takes one play to be out for the season.

I understand having a culture of winning, which is important, but this is just common sense. I'd rather have the starters as close to 100% when they have to play their next game against a hungry Bengals team than boost our win total and have those guys still banged up.
