They were wearing customized HD jerseys, so i just had to ask if they were his parents. They said yes, and I said "congratulations" - probably a weird thing to say. The mom looked like she wanted nothing to do with me at first (I had a Ryan jersey on), but when I offered my opinion that the turning point was the 3rd and 14 Hines catch, she agreed and seemed to warm up. Anyway, they dislike how Turner was tippytoeing, they thought Ryan was focusing too much on Roddy, they thought we should have gone for it on the 4th down, and they also thought, and this may be an extreme case of parental optimism, that had Ryan hit HD on the play Polamalu picked him off, that he would have "walked into the endzone." I believe we were inside our 20 on that play. Anyway, a tough loss, and we missed way too many opportunities, but it was an out of conference, and no team looked THAT great this weekend. A win over the Saints and this is a distant memory.

...and they were correct on all fronts!
