    I've never seen a team give a game away with so little time left. How do you give up a 17 point lead. All you have to do is run the ball and kill the clock. WTF Coaches, players i mean come on now. Most dissappointing game ever

    2005 Rams vs Texans. We were up 24-3 at the half. With just over 2 minutes to go, we were up by 10. We lost in overtime. I was standing in the Bullpen next to a rams fan. This was also our 2-14 season with Carr at the helm.

    Even so, today's game was worse......

    i've seen the texans do some crazy things and give up some games like 2 years ago when they gave the game to the bills but this one was a major WTF . . . I'm still shocked. I should have left 5 min's before the end of the game to beat traffic and not seen that last couple min's.

    This is not the teams loss - it is all on Sage.

    so does that mean the texans are 1 and 3 ,and sage is 0 - 1?


    whether or not it can be put on his shoulders or not it is a team loss and goes towards the record

    They didn't have to keep calling pass plays. Two setes of runs for three and outs with punts would have been sufficient to burn the clock, I think.
