    We'll probably be seeing this highlight for years to come. I mean, I understand the CB's are taught to knock the ball down on a hail mary but to "spike" it directly to the other team's WR? Total head palm :kubepalm:

    Honestly, I don't even blame Quin for that play. Like said, they were taught to bat the ball down. He was concentrating on the ball, playing full speed; it's hard to know your surrounding when your whole attention is on the airborne ball. It could of just as well been an INT for us.

    I to my blame to our other defenders who quit on that play, instead of making a wall around where the ball should of been batted down to. Notice on the replay Cushing about two other Texans defender walking around while the ball was in the air, 10 yards out from the EZ. If they were closer to the play, they might of knock the ball out of Thomas hands, or even int that play.

    They were thinking about OT on the last play instead on concentrating on not allowing a freak play like that happening.

    I stopped caring weeks ago......All I do is laugh now. I'm actually hoping this continues, because it's the only way we're ever going to rid ourselves of that Aggie loser on the sidelines.

    I don't understand people who are crying that he batted it straight to another player. Do you want him to take his eyes off the ball and look around before deciding where to bat it? To those wanting him to bat it out of bounds, I figure hitting a ball perpendicular to its motion is MAYBE a bit harder than batting it directly.

    Aren't the coaches supposed to make sure the players know and are
    focused on the situation?

    Everyone knows that DB's are taught to knock the ball down in that situation. If he tries to catch it and bobbles it and the Jags catch it off the deflection all you wanna be coaches would be screaming why didn't he knock it down. When the end result is a loss it doesn't matter how it happened its still a loss.

    Quin is going to be goat for the lazy minded, but really there were four to five mistakes made in the last 30 seconds of play which put the Jax in position to even attempt that throw.

    I'm not blaming Quin. It was a freak occurrence, and it should not have come down to that. I blame the coaches who only played for one half.

    Why it was Glover Quinn's Fault:

    1. He could have easily caught the ball and ended the game.
    2. He could have easily batted the ball with force. Ive seen children's volleyball players spike balls with more auhtority.
    3. he could have easily batted the ball out of bounds, behind him, or to th eside. Why would you hit it directly into a group of jacksonville players? It makes no sense


    Im sorry, ubt its definiately at least partly on him

    None of our corners played well. And I am not going to pin this loss on Glovers game ending spike. I still put this fully on the Texans being down 3-17 in the first half. How many times do we have to fight out of a hole in the 2nd half?

    Dumb move by Quinn...Dumb move by the Texans coaches...

    The receivers on a hail mary are taught to trail the play and look for the ball on the rebound....

    As a DB you SHOULD know that. You should be expecting the receivers to try and catch the ball on the rebound.. Why you bat the ball away in that manner is just perplexing to me. Bat it away from the defenders if you're going to bat it.

    Stupid.

    The entire team is just dumb as far as I'm concerned. Some great talent on both sides of the ball, but the collective stupidity of the coaches and some of the players is just overwhelming.
