    O lineman miss assignments all the time. Listen to what you are saying.

    When a QB drops the ball after being tackled, it's on him. It's like he was holding the ball with two fingers. If Brown's guy had hit the ball or drilled Fitz hard, you would have a point.

    Yeah the life of an NFL superstar who just signed a huge deal must be horrible.

    It's the onside kick that I can't get out of my mind. How does that happen?

    I wonder if Arian and JJ go to dinner during the week and talk about how they have to carry the other 10 dudes on their side of the ball.

    absolutely...it's a bad team.

    that doesn't absolve the QB, who is bad as well.

    I swear Swearinger wiffed only like 10 tackles. Joseph was horrendous as well.

    He didn't "miss an assignment" though, he just stopped blocking in the middle of the play and his guy got a free hit on the QB which caused a fumble. It's completely inexcusable. I know people want to blame Fitz, but it wasn't on him. He actually played pretty well tonight, his passer rating was over 100

    Agreee- for as well as he played early, Andre lost this game with the "fumble" (which btw wasn't actually a fumble) on the drive earlier. He pouted all offseason about wanting to be on a winning team and being unhappy with rebuilding, and in the most important home game of the season he screws the pooch. Future hall of famer, but he blew it tonight.

    Yes it's not ALL Fitz

    Andre fumbled which is rare
    DeAndre BALL WATCHING and not recovering

    but it's not like Fitz has been great, he sucks, and he always sucked. It's time to switch it up we got a long week till the MNF game

    Yep, but just stating that it was more of a poor team effort than to blame AJ or Fitz alone for killing potential game-winning drives.

    Watt practically killed himself for that victory, guy was dead tired but he never stopped... Just incredible. Gotta feel sorry for him.

    This.

    I would even argue that AJ deserves even more blame, as it would've been 3rd and short in Colts territory if he just hung onto the ball. Fitz actually played pretty well minus that last play (first quarter was more on the o-line than Fitz). He's not the answer long term, but who else do we have. As much as I want to see what we have in Mallet, his immobility would be a disaster with our crappy o-line.
