We shot ourselves in the foot TWICE when we had a chance in this game. Its not "garbage time," its not "stat padded" time, and at no point did NE really back off from what they are doing.
3) NE was running on us ALL ****ING GAME. Also, their 4th and 5 call where Woodyard got a sack. Yeah, real "garbage time" call.
I'll never agree with you because i dont think you're even close to right.
let me ask you this... if we were down 45-0 in the 3rd quarter, would that be garbage time?
what if we scored 3 quick TDs by the end of the 3rd quarter and only trailed 45-21? that's still garbage time, right?
that's the same deficit as trailing 31-7 with 4:42 to go in the 3rd quarter today. why is the hypothetical different than what happened today?
