    1) Obviously the Gates Fumble.

    2) Scifes terrible punt that allowed them a field goal after one first down.

    3) Holding penalty on Newbberry that called back the VJ catch. I believe we could have scored on that drive.:icon_shrug:

    1) Failure to get that muffed punt by Malcolm Floyd in the early third quarter
    2) The fumble by Gates
    3) Cromartie going for an interception on a slant route that was caught for 20 yards by Dwayne Jarret, last drive - could've been an easy block

    Before the game if someone would say: this is why you will lose (bold setences in qoute)...I mean who would take him/her serious. This is true but no more threads about this game, I get extremely pisted when i think about it.:icon_evil:

    I got some news for you guys. The plays that you say cost us the game would have only cost us a few points if we had played the rest of the game as we're capable of doing.

    Gates & Scifres are tops at their positions. They made a mistake. Sure, it hurt our chances, but didn't lose the game for us. Our lack of preparation, intensity, focus, & humility did that.

    as long time supporter of Scifres I apologize for the shank. it happens once in a great while. AS always I blame it on Binn's ex-girlfriend Pamela Anderson. no one looked terribly sharp (except maybe Rivers) that game.

    I will add a poor kick off at the start of the Panters final drive. Starting at the 32 was big IMO... We did not play to our strengths in that we have a VERY good special teams unit and we sent a weak *** kick that gave the Panters rougly 2.5 minutes, one timeout and 68 yards to go....

    There was a play in the second half where the panthers had a third and long.... out of field goal range.... and they picked up ten yards. Although, not enough for a first down, it did put them into field goal position which they converted. Keeping them to a five yard gain or less would have meant they would have punted.
