Really? People are being this hard on Reed? He has won many games for this team. He missed two so far this season. Is this really necessary?

Ben was brilliant by taking the spike.

The catch was questionable, if they take a TO, the jumbotron shows the play againa nd again until Titans challenge it. Maybe we lose those last 5 yards and miss the FG.

We missed it anyway, but absolutley the smartest play Ben could have done. Did you see Tomlin fist-bump Ben on the sidelines after that call?

i guess thats too hard for some people to understand though....

Our D needs to start sacking Collins

They have me worried with letting Crumpler run around out there

Tomlin again needs to chew some ass off

I only counted one drive inside FG range and one inside the 10 yd line that we didn't get any points out of, not too bad to only be down three I guess

No challenges in the last 2 minutes of the half - it would have to be a booth review.

As for Reed...the guy has been solid throughout his career, so I'll give him a pass on the miss. Most of the "faithful" won't, though.

I am not down on any player, for one i see the effort, second these are pros playing pros, there are going to be plays made in the course of the game by both teams. We hold in there and try to make a play or wait for a mistake like the two fumbles we have had.

The second was a great heads up play by Ben if it was to prevent the review. I didn't think he had control.

Nope, if we don't turn in 10 plays, 80 yards and a TD every single drive, we suck! If the D gives up a first down or God forbid, a TD once in a while, they suck!
