We played one of the best teams in the NFL without our best linemen and held Peyton without a touchdown, what part of that is so hard to be happy about? When Staley went down, I wasn't expecting his replacement to play as well as he did, what we do know is OL is a glaring need on this team, especially the right side. A win would have been nice, but we have many more games that are very winnable down the stretch. I think the team played hard and fought the whole game, much better than anything we ever saw under Nolan. You guys just need to quit taking it so hard, we did better than I expected today for sure, I thought for sure our defense would give up at least 2-3 touchdowns, we only gave up one on a trick play.
Exactly I don't know why people are mad? We were not expected to win this game. We played great!
The reason I'm upset is because we've had quite a few seasons of these "feel good" losses. This game was winnable today and should've been won but offensive playcalling lost it - well, mostly at least.
There is no point in playing as hard and as tough as they did only to fail. I'm sick of watching this team (this is the third time now) come within a RCH of beating good teams and falling short. If you aren't annoyed by that then I wish I had the patience you do.
Oh I'm annoyed....just not jumping full force onto the blame-game banwagon like so many zoners do.
There are some things the coaching staff needs to learn from this game. I have to say that they prepared well for the most part to face the best team in the league imo.
Let's move onto the Titans and their garbage pass defense. I'm ready.
The game is won and lost by the team but I just don't get the offensive play calling at times. They seem to shy away from what is successful - why...a rhetorical question of course.
I just want to see this team win games like this. They player hard and the defense did an awesome job containing the Colts offense only to fall four points short.
Oh well...bring on the Titans!
