not what i'm saying. he said that when we were down 31-7 with less than 5 minutes to go in the 4th wasn't garbage time because we could still have won. it would only have been garbage time if the game was unwinnable. but we didn't win. so that deficit seems pretty unwinnable to me. so i was trying to point out that the condition HE SET was not applicable. garbage time is not about whether or not some miracle can happen and you can win, it's about how the D softens and allows the losing QB to rack up stats much more easily than before the lead got out of hand.
