That triple icing cracked me...well after the fact. Now before you guys trip on running that play...we had to make the kick the last play....with our luck it was in our best interest...lol. Very poor time management though...but alls well that ends well I always say.

We have exercised some demons this year...didn't collapse, winning on the road, winning outside, making the playoffs...now we have to beat the Eagles in a big game, they always seem to beat us.

Even indoors, a 51 yard FG is no chip shot. The first down running play (AP up the gut for a 2 yard loss) and the subsequent clock management was a huge breakdown.......Longwell bailed out TJ and Childress.

With one timeout left, a short, safe pass to the side or middle could have been called. If it wasn't open, throw it away. Two play attempts to shorten the distance.....or at least don't lose yards.

Longwell bailed out Childress' butt big time after the game mismanagement fiasco of the last minute. The game mismanagement at the end of the first half was nearly as bizarre.
