Reaction: Hawks lose to Dolphins 21-19

Hard fought game. The WRs killed us, plain and simple. Has Colbert made a single valuable play since coming over in the trade? Seriously, can someone tell me a single play he has made?

I certainly can tell you his drop on 3rd down led directly to the Dolphins winning TD. Horrible. And Koren dropping that easy TD catch...at least he caught one later. Even Carlsen dropped a number of ball including the final one on 4th down. Fitting way to end.

The defense really stepped it up. Good game for the LBs, and nice pick six for big play babs.

It says a lot about Holmgren that the guys played this hard for him in a lost season.

I'm really proud of the team this week (with the WR drop exceptions). For the first time in recent memory they showed up at 10AM and almost won the game. It made me hopeful about what next year could end up being with everyone healthy.

Is it just me or has Wahle had a season of HUGE penalties that have had an effect on the final score?

And ditto on Colbert (or however you spell his name, I'm not going to bother to learn because he's gone soon--I HOPE!).
