Yeah it's starting to look bad, they're throwing short passes all over our D now. It was a terrible call too, he barely did anything to the guy he supposedly held. Not to mention Vick's hand was going forward on that one play in the first half that they reviewed. It's like someone doesn't want us to win.

Wow, Hartwell made a tackle! We need to strip Westbrook one of these plays.

Beyond that the ultra conservative play calling by Mora & Crew could come back to bite us in the ass.

Yeah the bad thing about that kind of playcalling is when it's time to make a play they can just open the flood gates....i.e. 3rd and long, bring Dawkins & everyone else.

That McClure holding was a questionable call. Whomever he was supposedly holding had no chance of making the play anyway. As for Vick's tuck/fumble, the refs made the right call.

No they really didn't. You could see from the rear view the ball got swatted after his hand started to come forward as plain as day. Just because the ball goes backwards doesn't mean his hand wasn't going forward with the ball.
