You completely missed my point. My sole point being that his defenses have HISTORICALLY given up 4TH QUARTER LEADS. I am not talking about the full games.

This was the first big one that caught some attention and then some people started to realize a pattern.

So what? That doesn't change the fact the Cardinals scored 14 of those points in the 4TH QUARTER.

No, it wasn't the only problem. However, the inability of the defense to make any type of stop on the Bengals last drive in the 4TH QUARTER, allowing them to kick a field goal, is a problem.

The Chiefs going into that game had the worst offensive output since 1929. That's a hell of a long time ago. Again, when the game was on the line the Chiefs and Dan Marino drove right down in the 4TH QUARTER and tied the game to send it into overtime. Never should have gotten to that point. A great defense doesn't allow the worst offense in over 80 years to drive the field to tie.

No, I was referring to the 10 points the Titans scored in last 5 minutes of the 4TH QUARTER.

Every team deals with injury problems, don't make excuses. The Cowboys tied the game in the 4TH QUARTER, however, there was still 6 minutes left in the game, so it was unLebeau like to have the other team score with that much time left on the clock.

You can bang your head all you want but you completely missed my point.
