    That's what I want to know - forget all this crap about why Carr wasn't passing with a minute to go on our own 6 yard line - why the hell didn't we give it to a RB and see if he can break a long one? That's just nuts.

    How the hell do you give up 39 yards rushing to a QB on 3rd and 14, outside field goal range, in OT? Damn that was painful. :brickwall

    On the Daniels pass, had Carr placed it right, I believe it would have been the game killer right there. I think that call was a good one, but I hated most of the other passing plays that were called when we held the 8-pt lead.

    I don't know if Kubiak wanted to try to win the game with Carr's arm for the sake of Carr's confidence, but I was upset that he abandoned what was a successful ground game.

    If you are happy because we "stayed close" with the Titans you need to reset your expectations. First, we were favored to win this game. Second, we lost to a rookie qb. Third, the offense was putrid. Fourth, I hate VY, but now regret us passing on him. Lastly, the Titans look like a franchise headed in the right direction...we don't.

    I sure would have liked to have seen Taylor get a few carries...I hate to say it, not like we got something to play for this year.

    Houston, again.
    If you watch the replay, Daniels was knocked off his route and slipped a bit and that threw the timing off. In the NFL, the ball is thrown to a spot and if the guy is late, it looks long. I agree though that the game would have taken a positive turn our way if they had hooked up or if AJ held onto the endzone ball.
