    I think blaming the officiating is as lame as blaming playcalling.

    Give the Jags their props. We got our asses kicked by a better football team, who made their own share of mistakes.

    The defense had no answer for Maurice Jones-Drew.

    We'll prop them for scoring drives unaided by BS officiating.

    I mean seriously, Jacksonville is 2 seconds past the playclock and they are not flagged.

    I agree.

    I've been saying it in the other thread.

    We were physically manhandled today.

    Was he the one wearing the black-and-white jersey?

    Honestly, he had a great game but the zebras really impacted the game more than any player could.

    Does Richard Smith know what a screen pass is? I know we can't execute one ourselves but there has to be someway to know how to defend one.

    Call it lame if you want, but games are changed by 2-4 plays. These refs took it out of the players' hands and into their own. W\I would never claim we would have won but for the refs, but we have no idea what this game would have been like without these calls. As Kubiak said--F*&king BS.

    I'm honestly beginning to hate the SOB as much as I hated Fangio.
    And that is quite a feat for the amount of time he has held the job.

    You're making excuses, Cak. C'mon man, you're better than that. The Jags had their own share of things that went wrong with them.

    Ain't no way in hell you're gonna convince me that we would have won if the 'officiating' had been better. Maurice Jones-Drew made the entire Texans defence his *****. They had no answer for him.

    The jags set us up with long drives and ball control and knocked us out in the 4th. They beat the crap out of us and were way better in every phase of the game. Here's hoping we find a way to be competitive next week.

    The refs were all around bad, made calls that went our way and that went their way but we did get the short end of the stick more often, not that it would have mattered.

    Don't tell me I am making excuses or I am better than something. I didn't say we would have won but for the officiating. I said the officiating sucked and it did. The game would have been far different with fair officiating--that is freakin reality. Maybe we still would have lost--we will never know.

    For the Jags, the only bad call I saw was the spot of the Matt Jones catch inside the redzone--should have been a 1st down. That isn't even close to all the bad calls the Texans received.

    Does it even reall ******** matter at this point. The refs sucked, the jags kicked our ass on top of it, and I am so pissed I can't see straight. But what does it really matter.

    They better get their head out of their asses quick and start preparing for Tenn., I didn't shell out $300 bucks to go to next week's game to lose another division game. **&^&(Y(^(Y(&(******&^(&(&(*******&(&(&(*********

    We physically dominated the first few drives.

    Our offense looked awesome, Schaub had a lot of time to throw, etc.

    Our defense was getting really good penetration and forcing turnovers..

    The Davis fumble really hurt us and then JAX held onto the ball for FOREVER...then got their surprise onside kick...

    Our team just didn't come back after halftime and they did dominate us. This game stunk.

    Solid game, Jags. We were simply outplayed and out-schemed today. We HAVE to win next week or we are in a deep hole.

    Yea, without the help of the ref. It was a fair game, unlike today's. You jags fans really are idiots if you think this game wasn't rigged. It was good for the first 12 minutes before the ref got scared of us sticking it to you guys.

    Beat us like a drum today. Used us like a paper towel and threw us away when they were done.

    I did think the refs were a busy bunch today but I thought they were fair for the most part. When they weren't fair the calls were equally bad on both sides.

    I notice that it's hard to find a "What are we going to name our defense?" thread on the front page these days. Wonder why that is?
