    I'm certainly not taking anything away from our great performance today but
    Marvin Harrison Cost The Colts The Game. He ran out of bounds just before reaching the endzone and I was in the North endzone and can tell you he would have easily punched it in with little effort but he decided to avoid contact with LT and stepped out of bounds. This lead to a field goal instead of an easy 6 points!

    THANKS MARVIN!!

    marvin always costs them some yards after catch with his fall to the ground routine he has. he always goes the ground unless no one is within ten yards of him.

    Kevin Dyson said after the game that small receivers don't like getting hit and will often run out of bounds. He complimented the Titans defense on their second half tackling and what a difference it made in the ballgame.

    The pass interference cost the Colts the game. Also, IMO the Colts should have gone for it on 4th down instead of kicking the FG. Hard to fault a guy who had 170+ yards recieving in the game.

    Jerry Rice used to do the same thing. If we could have a player like either one of them, I'd gladly put up with them falling to the ground or running out of bounds.

    You people are nuts. Marvin Harrison is one of the top all time receivers. He is a solid character on and off the field. He plays to win every game. He may pick his battles but he is always fighting. In regards to this game, his route running helped get him behind Pac and his sure hands made the easy AND difficult catches. He was the one who KEPT them in the game.

    Get real.

    I certainly wouldn't put it on him. If the Colts want to make it to the big dance, they should be able to get it in the end zone. The favorites played it safe, and the underdogs took some chances and got them.

    I saw this too. I thought maybe Harrison had pulled a Hammy or something and then ran out of bounds. He could have scored if he had kept running.

    I'm glad someone else saw this. You had to see the play to get what we're saying.
    Marvin had an easy 6!
    There was absolutely no reason for him to step out but yet he did just before he reached the endzone. This cost the colts a DEFINATE touchdown and they had to settle for a field goal. Had Marvin ran it in they would have beat us.

    That move cost them the game.
    I guess it's no big deal to a team with 10 wins. But if someone on our team did that. The call for his head would be deafening!
