    I'm not blaming Hass... I'm just saying that ONE DRIVE would have been a bit better with Locker's wheels.

    I think Hass has been doing great in Locker's absence... but, which QB would you rather see once they run out of the pocket? Hass or Locker?

    I think that would have helped on the last drive, at least.

    One drive shouldn't have decided the game anyway. The Colts have a rookie QB and are, officially, rebuliding. The Titans should have owned them other than the fact that, save for special teams, the staff blows. As long as Texas Bud owns the Titans, and keeps hiring idiots from Texas, they won't be winning much of anything.

    I can think of, potentially, 5 game-changing events in this game.

    The First was Britt's HUGE catch... but was flagged for OPI, which was the right call.

    The second was Britt's next HUGE TD catch... but was flagged for OPI, which was a bad call.

    The third was the FG block that was run back. There was a fairly obvious Horse Collar tackle on the end of the run back that would have given Bironas a chance to kick another FG before the half. It wasn't called.

    The fourth was McCarthy dropping an easy INT, which he would have been able to return for many yards. I won't say a TD... but very close. Just a bad, unlucky play by him.

    The fifth was that obvious fumble. They called forward progress, which is why it was reviewed. The problem is that the whistle didn't blow the play dead until AFTER the fumble had occurred. Bad, bad non-call by the Refs.

    Those plays - I can't think of any that stick out in my head - were the potential game-changers.

    3 of 5 of them were on the officiating. Just frustrating. Especially frustrating with it being in our own house against the Colts.

    Everyone is quick to point the finger at Gray again, and he did do another bad job, but this game goes on our offense. Chris Johnson is running the ball well again, Wright is a playmaker, Britt healthier by the week, Cook a freak athlete, and Nate being clutch and consistent and yet we could only score 13 points. The refs did a horrible job and we gave up points late in the game but if you only score 13 points, you're going to lose most of the games you play in.

    Palmer has been winning me over these past few games. I've been seeing glimpses of good plays from him, with an uneasy mixture of head-scratching plays tossed in. He's getting better. His blocking schemes have improved... we are a passing team and we manage to get guys open.

    My only complaint with him is his inability to utilize what is potentially our biggest weapon with our passing... Cook. We don't utilize him effectively AT ALL. He's a mis-match waiting to happen on passing plays... and yet, we don't use him, it seems.

    Grey sucks. He's actually managing to make me hate him with each game. Fire him or force Munch out to take Grey out. If we had the '85 Bears defense... we'd still suck.

    As long as Grey is our Defensive Coordinator... our D will suck and we won't win when our D must step up.

    Is Munch any good..? Hard to say... he's overshadowed by his coordinators in my eyes.

    The D did decent... until the second half.

    When Grey is having a good game... it's almost as if he forgets there is an entire second half of football to play. We either don't adjust in the second half or we adjust poorly in the second half.

    It's bad... real bad in the second half.

    Did this loss make anyone else cry or is it just me? My p***y hurts really bad right now.

    Okay yeah I get that but we still held them to 13 points in regulation. I know the defense didn't play as well as what the scoreboard says but still just 13 points. The offense lost the game by putting up 3 points in the 2nd half.

    I just hope Griffin continues this type of play from here on out... this is how he is SUPPOSED to play after getting that contract. He better not think he's "good" after this.

    I'm still not big on him... but if he can keep this up for the remainder of the season and the future... great!

    Ever notice Hass dont always have an open receiver until he has thrown it away?
    He played fine today. Twas the refs that killed the beast.
