How typical was it that Special Teams took a nap after Jackson's 53 yard TD run? We had a HUGE momemtum advantage and just like that it was gone. Then we get an Isaac Bruce TD, go into halftime with the lead, and in typical Rams fashion that's all she wrote. Nothing in the second half. Nada. Zilch. Outscored by the Hags a season total of 40-3 in the second half. Hard to win games when you tank like that.
Is it just me and my hatred for the Hags or am I justified in saying that the Replay Booth screwed up royally on that last drive? When Frerotte snuck the first down at the 5 and then the upstairs guys decided to review it, why in the hell didn't they turn around three plays later and review Jackson's run when he stretched the ball out over the goal line? So quick to do a review that could have taken a first down away from us but not one that could have given us a winning TD. Typical.
To quote one of my favorite movie lines of all time, "Game over man, Game over!" Injuries are to blame, sure, but the frickin play calling was atrocious when it needed to be deadly. And it was deadly alright, just against the wrong team. Typical.
Great loss by a great losing team. Our team. My team.
On a side note, Jeff Wilkins PAT in the first Quarter moved him past Mark Moseley for 21st on the all time list.
