    Two tries? Jon you make it seem like he missed a fg. Forbath is good everytime! Didn’t you see the sign some fans were holding up saying “got forbath?”

    I thought Chuck Bullough deserved tons of credit for that adjustments the D made in the 2nd half. That was great to see. It really give me confidence in the future of the team!
    Great finish to a rebuilding season.
    There are going to be some ups and downs again next season…I am preparing myself now!

    He’s referencing the fact that Al Golden tried to “ice” Kai Forbath, so he ultimately kicked that field goal twice before the close of the half.

    Also, you’re a dick. But you probably already knew that, too…

    Yeah, the way I read that about Kai was that he missed the first and made the second. Had I not seen the game, i would have thought that he didn’t nail both of them with perfect spin through the uprights.

    Yeah, anon is a dick.

    don’t forget props to Terrence Austin, and adjusting to the cold weather

    Jon,really like your report cards. Am not a big Kevin Prince fan but he was at least a B. Rust understandable in first half. Had strong second half and nice end of first half short drive to regain some Mo.

    prince gets a D+ – he still misses the easy ones…

    the wide rec get a D+ – I agree they should have taken advantage of their size & didn’t…

    coach Bullough gets a F+ – I’m so damn tired of us getting run over in the first half only for him to make an adjustment at half time.. why not adjust in the first quarter? or come up with a better game plan…

    Price & Ayers – A- Good thing they came along for the ride…

    Kai is a stud…
