    I know it's outside the scope of the thread, but Tx is absolutely correct.

    Yes, great point by Tex. Our run defense was horrible that day.

    Nothing new and surprising here tx. It was basically that way all season. The defense just didn't get the big turnovers in this game. They held the points down very close to their average. Points given up is the bootom line for the defense. Can't wash everything away with the defense, at least not that defense. It was a feast or famine defense with the turnover. It was the offense that failed to score touchdowns in the redzone that hurt the most. Failure to come away with at least six when you are in the redzone is what killed this game.

    Fifty yards in the air and it's close enough for Holt to get a hand on it and bring it in. Sounds like it was a fairly accurate pass to me over that distance. If the ball was underthrown, I don't think it would have been caught because we're talking about Holt slowing down and turning for the catch, giving the DB time to close in and make a play on the ball. Instead, the ball was delivered in front of Holt to ensure that he would be the only one around it since he had the DB beat. It wasn't right over his shoulder, but it was pretty darn close.

    I'm fairly certain if you ask your QB to throw ten passes fifty yards deep, that throw by Bulger is probably one of the better passes you're going to get. Holt's supposedly one of the NFL's elite receivers. Great receivers make those kind of grabs.

    When he dropped it, I died! Now, I am alive again and he'll get the next big one! It's pure logic! But, how could they leave Steve Smith?
