The two delay of game penalties were absolutely brutal. That should NOT happen. Maybe it was rust, communication, i dunno but that's on him. Also, the ball looked force on the interception.
I agree with the game management, but also blame the coaches. They were the ones sending in the plays and burning time as well. I am not sure why on one of those a coach didn't call a timeout.
Of course, someone on here would have found fault with that as well.
IMO, I saw a spark that hasn't been there all season in the 2nd half. Not sure if this was because Smith brought new formations that Houston wasn't ready for, or if
having Smith in there allowed the Coaches to open things up because he can throw the ball farther than 15 yards or not.
I guess we'll see. However, you can't put yourself in a hold like the 49ers did and expect to come back.
Screw people blaming Battle. Rossum muffed a few too. Crap, maybe we ought to put Crabtree back there right? That way he could be a one game wonder when he get's carted off the field.
