    No that's what I mean. Instead of really gameplaning, we revert to some sort of prevent, 3-4 man rush bull****. That isn't making a change, it's being painfully obvious and staying close to a formula that doesn't work.

    Because it didn't look like Chow's game.

    Vince ran. Vince lateraled.

    Sorry that's not what I saw. Pacman was committed at full speed to chasing Mase, Heap saw it happen & took the angle out behind him forcing Hope to commit.

    I'll watch again tomorrow to be sure & get back to you

    True, but at that point there really was no reason to go for it. Certainly not if you're off the belief that a prevent defence can win the game for you.

    @avvie
    You do know Chow has encouraged Young to run more? Yes the lateral was all Vince, but the rest was Chow's playcalling, ie. the good runs by Henry, the long completions to the receivers, etc.

    Yes, i know...which seems to indicate that even he sometimes gets a moment of clarity.

    What has happened to Troupe? He has taken such a huge leap backward it seems.

    You can see the talent he has...but his hands have gone to brick.....really a shame for him and the Titans.

    i dont know if it has anything to do with troupe's ability. it was just a situation when you have two guys doing something they are not used to in game situations. nickey is not used to handing the ball off, and troupe is not used to receiving a hand off.

    The Fake punt was IMHO great timing and it worked, he fumbled the ball, and got it back... This was a game that we needed to keep momentum and continue long drives ending with points, I Loved the call, it reminded me of the old titans when Fish would bring in trick plays when we needed it and had he not fumbled we sustain that drive and keep that momentum.. and in my opinion that was the turning point of the game... The offcials calls were horrible as well, but did you see BB Face when that Ref flagged him... Priceless.... But all in all pretty tough to swallow that loss....
    by the way I HATE RAY LEWIS......

  10. well first of all the fake punt wasnt chow's decision, fisher has stated before that all of the trick plays are called by him, and secondly it was drew bennet that handed it off to troupe
