It seemed like they were completely lost and out of tune with each other...

Billy Joel agrees.

WTF, guys.  It's a 60 minute game.  Sense of urgency and cohesiveness ebbed and flowed throughout the playoffs tho.  2nd half of the divisionals...first half of Conference Championship...first quarter and a half/end of Super Bowl.

MFing infuriating.

They were able to overcome it in those games because the turnover margin wasn't so great.  Can't be (-3) there and expect to win.  Fact that they had a shot to take the lead with a couple mins left says a lot.

It was like watching Tiger on Sunday, where he's seemingly been scrambling since Thursday, but only needs a birdie or two to win the tournament.

Tossing my blog into the mix.  Basically, it agrees with LC's assessment.


Just read that Preach.  Spot on with what I saw. Just no Ron Artest to hit that three at the end.

At least Ben didn't puke in the huddle.

I think they should have been running no huddle a lot more, not necessarily because of the time constraints, but to get the offense in a groove and that's when Ben is at his best.  I can't believe they waited until the last drive to go no huddle.  And when they did run it, everyone was on a different page.  Would have been nice to work the kinks out earlier in the game.

OK Chris. Now that we have practiced kissing and cuddling, we'll practice eating out...at a fancy restaurant.

No offense to Boot, but it is ridiculous how often the same complaint is repeated on this board, year after year.  And the common denominator to those complaints?

Do I even need to post it?
