That season was frustrating. Our defense was just as bad as it was the previous season. Our offense started off a little sputtery at the beginning too, which didn't help things. That Carolina game we could have easily won. We were on the one yard line going in to score, up 7, and, for whatever reason, we decided to pass. Green throws a pick-6 that was run back about 105 yards. Instead of being up by 14, the game was tied. It went to hell after that.
We followed up that Ravens performance with a bad loss at Jacksonville.
Green threw too many INTs early on. He snapped out of it but it was too little too late. We lost a lot of close games that year.
I remember Tynes missing a couple kicks that actually cost us a game or two.
Opening up in Denver that year on MNF was a bad omen. Eric Hicks biting on that that bootleg and Bartee giving up the sluggo...
That Jacksonville game just kind of...slipped away. It was so imminently winnable...
The Atlanta and Indy game were the highlights. And when we beat the sleeves off Denver @ Arrowhead, but we had already lost 9 games by then...
And I thought that season was just SO horrible. HA!
