    Now, I know there was a lot of game left after this happened, but what really hurt today was Wali Lundy's dropped pass on the screen play on the opening drive. He catches that and he runs for 15yds at least, maybe even a TD. Next play, missed FG. Can't make mistakes like that on the road against a good team and expect to win.

    The missed field goal for one the 2 35 yard punts did not help and the fumble at the end that sealed it. But I was proud how they came out and played today and did not give up and how about that attuide on D wow that was nice.

    That drop by wali was huge, it was an easy first down like you said.

    also was mario's bogus personal foul. he barely pushed eli while still 5ft inbounds.

    also was the almost block FG. that would have been awesome. the "incomplete pass" was close. I think in the end the refs made the right call but should not have blown the whistle. something that close you have to keep playing and let NY challenge.

    great game though, fun to watch because we were oh so close.

    Not many expected us to compete with these guys. I thought we had a win in us today. It was close. I'm not going to pick the 'what-ifs' apart.

    This was a win in one aspect...we perfomed as a team, for the entire game.

    Here's to the rest of the season, and a successfull second half of the year.:cool:

    That drop by Wali was huge, we were moving and Carr hit him in stride!

    Of course Cooks fumble costs us and we still have problems shutting down the run.

    Brown missed another easy field goal for the second week in a row. Stanley is punting like a girl. Yep, I would say we need better production there. What we really need is to start forcing more turnovers. Stupid penalities and turnovers seem to be the great equalizer in whether you win or lose a game. I will say that Mario got robbed on that call when he barely tapped Eli when he was falling down and still inside the playing field.
