Though he did pick a hell of a time for his worst punt of the season



it looked like he shanked the kickoff prior to the punt also. wonder if something was wrong with him. maybe not, probably was just pressing bc he wanted to get off another 65-70 yarder. 50 yards is all he needed there

Heck even just 5-10 more yards on that kick and it's harder for the Bengals to get into FG position with enough time left. Bad time to choke.

He should have never been put in that position to begin with. I'm not going to blame one single entity on this loss, but that PI call on Calvin Johnson was a freakin' joke. It cancelled out our getting a first down there, and our chance for a FG or to take the game into overtime. The officiating crew missed so many calls against the Bengals it was ridiculous. The officiating crew also decided to be VERY generous when, after the blocked FG they lateraled the ball forward TWICE, and it was never called. Schwartz wanted to challenge, but the referee told him he wasn't a challengable play.

Also, Stafford was personally responsible for leaving about 14 points on the field. He missed at least two TD passes, and got SAVED by Calvin on that one he simply threw up for grabs. Stafford may have posted some decent numbers, but anyone who says he played a good game just doesn't know a damn thing about playing QB. His throwing was as inconsistent as I've seen him this year, and he's been pretty inconsistent in most of the games. All three TD passes he threw were great catches, not great throws. In his defense, he was under pressure almost the entire game. The offensive line played a poor, poor game. And since when did Reggie Bush think that dancing at the LOS was acceptable in the NFL? Juke people AFTER you get through the line, not before.

Just not a real good showing all around. Chris Houston played his worst game of the year, by far. AJ Green made him look like garbage most of the time.

To sum it up.....YECH!
