all plays are indeed not created equal. a 7 point lead with 40 seconds to go in a playoff game with the right to host the AFCCG the following week..every fan, every coach every player knew with absolute certainty that you cannot allow a ball to get behind you. You prefer to prevent those type of plays at all other times in the game as well but the situation under which Rahim made his blunder makes his mistake much more significant. there's no sugar coating it. Despite all of Champs issues, despite our running defense being sub par, we still had a 7 point lead with 40 seconds to go and 71 yards in between the tying points...and Rahim Moore **** the bed.
