On top of that, we pinned them on their 1 yard line. Our defense lost us that game, no question. There's no reason the Falcons should've gone 60+ yards in less than a minute with 1 timeout. No reason.

If you're up by a touchdown sure go ahead and punt. But to give the ball back to Ryan with a minute left when you're only up 2 points isn't what I would've done. As soon as the decision was made to punt I knew we were going to lose the game. Our secondary is just too weak.

Cam was upset and fired up over the fumble. If I'm the coach I look him in the eyes and say "Go out there and get us a 1st down!"

Of course there's a reason I'm not an NFL coach.
