That's just it, Lebeau gambled that they weren't going to go for the endzone on that play. They had worked it down the field and were still 18 yards away with 32 seconds left. I think he figured another underneath throw was coming with that much time and on 1st down. He dropped 7 into zones hopping he could snag a pick or Troy could make a splash play with a sack.

That said, penalties are obviously on the players, but at some point they become a reflection of the coaching staff. The play-calling on both sides was a bit odd, and once again it seems obvious to me that Arians is a good OC, but an awful game manager.

At some point people have to realize that BMac is not the solution. It doesn't matter if he "never lets his guy get behind him" if he's regularly giving up all of the intermediate throws, and I mean every single one of them. Gay has had some problems with his confidence, and he'll never be Revis, but no one else ever will either, so... I think Gay or a future draft pick is going to be the answer.

Was I the only one who noticed just how shocked Ike seemed when he made the INT? I could swear he looked like he was going to cry at one point.

Disagree somewhat here. Don't you remember how terrible Gay was trying to be the #2 corner? He couldn't cover and gave even more room than BMAC underneath. Both give a little too much cushion. The difference is BMAC is a sure tackler. He's there to take the receiver down immediatelty with authority. BMAC is just a more physical corner, Gay is good as a nickel.

Agree. Plus, you just can’t fail to capitalize on turnovers the way we did.

…and our apparent incapacity to field a good secondary as a whole. Especially cornerbacks. When Flacco threw it in the EZ and I saw McFadden being beaten that bad by T.J. Houshmandzadeh, I thought: oh my God, here we go again…
Poor coverage.
