    Glover Ball --

    Rosencopter was bad, yes, but we were not in the playoff hunt and getting help as we had been this year

    Rosencopter- he knew better and he tried to do too much

    Glover- was just doing what he was taught to do

    Rosencopter because that was an entire meltdown not just one heroically awful play.

    I voted Rosencopter as some other choice moments were not on the list but obvioucly this one is up there...

    The half back pass by C. Brown last year and a bunch of others I can't think of right now.

    Rosencopter was the signature play of a single player meltdown. Glover Quin's play was not one player losing a ballgame for his team; it was just one fluke play that defined the game. Rosencopter was a 3 turnover meltdown by one player in the closing moments of a game that they had in hand.

    Rosencopter. That was the day I stopped believing in the Kubiak Texans.

    "Gloverball" resulted in a touchdown, media calling a Texan loss a "great come from behind, last second Jag win" and just plain humiliation. "Rosencopter" was just a loss.

    It was a tough call but I picked "Rosencopter."

    Before Rosencopter, there was hope. I felt like - hey, maybe we actually are going to get over the hump. And look at this! We're actually going to finally beat the Mannings! Oh, wait..... nevermind.

    Rosencopter really made me wince. Rosencopter hurt because there was still hope for the future under Kubiak.

    Glover ball sucked. But it didn't really hurt because I wasn't expecting anything less than failure (sad to say).

    Glover Ball was, in the words of Texans Chick, vomity. It was like some kind of cosmic karma descended upon the football field to exact it's mystical power on our franchise. However, there was no hope dashed away in a mere instant, simply because hope had left town a long time ago. It was more of a resignation, a little whimper inside, a placid acceptance of the way things are and the way things are supposed to be. Wake up, put your pants on, go to work the next day.

    Rosencopter was epic FAIL. It symbolized so much about this franchise, the backup QB who would've/could've/should've, the little engine that could but didn't, the epitome of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the grandest fashion possible. I say it's worse because I was there, cheering my guts out to beat the arch-nemesis, believing that we were witnessing something great, something bigger than ourselves, something that would unify the city in joyous celebration. Obviously, we were witnessing something great...great for Colts fans, of course.
