    So you wouldn't have gone for it on 4th down in our game? My thought process is as long as the defense holds strong, you'll either end up with a safety or great field position and be close to field goal range to start the drive anyways. Of course, Verner made his one bad play of the season and let Avery burn him for a 40 yard gain.

    But right before the half, with no time left it's a different story. I would've kicked it if I were the Falcons. That's not what I was debating.

    Nope. I especially wouldn't have gone for it in our game.

    It might be a different story if it's 21-0 or something. But it was a 10 point game at that point and the FG would've cut it to a one score game. And it's not even all about the points. If you fail (which we did), then it's a huge emotional letdown for your team and a huge emotional upswing for the opposing team. Even Frank Wycheck, probably the world's biggest Titan apologist, said so.

    Of course, if we had scored then obviously no one would be complaining. It was just too risky at that point in the game IMO. Personally, I think the call REEKED of desperation, rather than confidence.

    No one wants Britt at this point. He's terrible. TST may have been right how he's been the worst player in the entire league this season.

    Truly awful. I was out throwing the football with my friend the other weekend... It was at night, I could barely locate the ball, but I caught it every time. No drops. And I wasn't wearing gloves. How these idiots can drop passes while wearing those gloves which are basically legal stick 'em is beyond me.

    Not trying to say I'm better than Britt because that's dumb, but just putting into perspective how easy it should be for a guy who makes millions (to catch a ball) to catch a ball.

    Also, I'm pretty sure I can throw the ball as far as Fitzpatrick. lol

    I'm too lazy to look, but I'm sure Britt is leading the league in drops by a long shot, and the idiot doesn't even have any plays to make up for it. At least when TO was leading the league in drops he was making big plays too. Britt is GARBAGE.

    calling Britt garbage is insulting to trash everwhere.

    Britt has been targeted 22 times and has managed to catch just 6 of those passes.
