Stafford has all day when they don't call his line for holding.

Matt Jones???

I see a swiss cheese defense allowing a TD in under a minute.

MATT JONES COST US THIS GAME. He fumbled at the two yard line. THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE.

Also, isn't throwing the ball out of the field using it as a prop? Shouldn't that have been a penalty?

The defense held them to 20 points. The offense cost us this game with the turnovers.

How hard is this to understand? We were ahead by 4 with 1:05 left and the defense could not hold them. The DEFENSE lost the game?

You're the dim bulb here, pal. The offense squandered the game with turnovers. It never should have come down to the game winning drive for Stafford. Get off it.

They also scored enough to have the lead at the end of the game... when it counts. All that sh*tty defense had to do was hold them for 1 minute... they failed.

Poor defense play calling, they should have stayed in man coverage and they went into zone and let them march right down the field. The only time they went into man coverage is when they sacked Stafford for that big loss and wen tright back to zone to give them the TD. 2 more plays in man coverage and we would hav ewon, inspite of Gruden letting Jones stay in the game and continue to fumble. Poor coaching lost that game.
