I agree. If it were not for this stupid selfish act we might win this game. In the immediate future does it matter? No, we are still 2-7. But these are the mistakes that cost games and we didn't commit one mistake, we committed several and that is inexcusable. In order to be a winner you have to act like a winner and we act like losers. If this was a Belichick team would this happen? No, and if it did they would be stapled to the bench that's what. On this team it's accepted and there are no consequences. That's why we are losers.
