    I think it is a pretty long list.

    There might be more plays that stand out, but I would say those were the five biggest

    I would like an all of the above option, but i'll go w/the Stetlz holding; but it's like a 1aa, 1ab situation.

    Steltz. Game Changer. Momentum destroyer.

    That's my thought also. It's like a guy died of terminal cancer and we're wondering which of his toenails was too long.

    I want to say Steltz, because I want Hester to have as many TD's as possible, but Trestman has had enough time to see that this offensive line does NOT get a push on run plays.

    I voted Forte.

    While he more than made up for it, running like a beast the rest of the game, being down 14-0 before fans had a chance to take their seats put the team in an immediate hole forcing both the offense and defense to be near perfect

    I voted Forte too. While he at least redeemed himself with his performance after that bad play, it was still the most costly of the game.

    Sounds like something Rex Ryan might do...
