I'm not going to question the call, i actually kinda respect it. Franklin was just trying to make the play. But the fumble was the deciding play... who's the real contender out of those two teams? I can't really tell

I totally disagree. The defining play was Ross who should have been instructed, never in your lifetime run the ball out the end zone. With your speed you can't make it to the 10 yard line and with your hands you drop 50% of the punts.

I'm shocked Mac keeps using this guy. As I told wifey, its the old adage of stupidity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result each time.

Ross could not make the 53 on any team except the packers.

Our nemesis has a guy called Sherrels whose only job is to field kick offs. He is fast, sure handed and knows when to run and not to run.

No when you think about it we lost the game right then and there with his stupid play. Take those seven easy points away and do the math, who really won that game.
Ya gotta blame Ross. No reason for that kind of play. None at all.

...'we lost the game right then and there.' I know, right? I was hoping the Packers would forfeit when leading by 16 late in the game.

Good thing he's not on the 53.

I don't have a problem with the 4th&1 call. I criticized the choice to go up the middle, but no play is guaranteed. So many things went wrong after that big lead that it's really hard to believe. Injuries, poor play execution and of course, more injuries.

Don't forget "injuries", too.
