    INDIANAPOLIS Quarterback Jake Locker’s interception from the Tennessee 1 was the game-changing play against the Colts.

    The Titans felt they shouldn’t have been in that position to begin with.

    A Colts punt went out at the 1, but prior to the snap the Titans believe two Colts linemen moved. Several players on the punt return team pointed to the players in question. Titans special teams coach Alan Lowry was clearly enraged that there was no flag.

    “They moved. They missed it,” coach Mike Munchak said of the officials. “Two guys flinched that moved. The guy standing next to us saw it. They didn’t throw the flag. The (official) said he missed it.

    “Who knows what happens. Does he kick it out again the same way with the five-yard penalty? Probably not, but they didn’t call it. They missed it. … That was frustrating.”

    The only coach that would let a qb like locker throw when he is backed up on his own 2 is Mike Munchak .. a good coach would at least try and run the ball to give his Q.B. some room...Maybe they shouldn't have been backed up on the 2 .. But locker Definitely SHOULD NOT be throwing in that situation.

    The Titans should not be able to point out the obvious because they suck?

    Great logic.

    They also let the Luck pick 6 stand... went both ways this particular Sunday.

    Refs were horrible all around.

    The refs hate us so much that when a loss helps us more, they want us to win.

    Part of their job is to talk about what happened on the field.

    Sure it was a bad call. And sure it's part of their jobs to talk about what happened on the field. But I don't hear them complaining about the (non)pick-6 by Witherspoon. So as long as we're talking what ifs, we might as well bring that one into the discussion, no?

    There were enough bad calls to go around yesterday. The way I see it, we were the team that was gift-wrapped 7 points we shouldn't have had. The refs didn't make Locker throw his awful pick 6. They simply missed a false start. Whoopity doo. We could've easily overcome it without giving up points, but didn't. Because we suck.

    As much as people don't want to admit it, the Colts are just a better team than us right now.

    They are better than us, but so are 28 other teams... Colts still suck. Most overrated team in the league.
