Question of the Day
Bang! The lead is gone.
“At halftime, we all talked about it,” Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb said. “We knew what was coming in the second half. You can’t let down in this league, especially against a team like this. It wasn’t a lack of focus, it was a lack of execution.
“This league is all about trying to find a way to win. I give them credit for the great comeback they had. In the second half they brought a little bit more pressure.”
Exactly. The trailing team gets extra aggressive and, too often, the team in front gets a tad comfortable.
Oddly, the level of experience doesn’t seem to matter in this year’s comeback scenarios. None of the club’s that lost, not even the Cardinals, is callow. New England, Minnesota, Philadelphia and Dallas all are filled with veterans, many of them solid players.
Yet they succumbed.
“When you’re playing this game, you have to play loose, no matter what,” Boldin said. “No matter how you look, you still have to play loose. Whenever you are tight, guys just try to make things happen and end up making mistakes, and that’s not how you play football.”
At least not winning football.
