Film Room: Spot Dropping Presenting Predictable Problems

Know we’re trying to move beyond the AFC Championship game. But because I’m sorta the last one to the party to digest this ugly, ugly loss. There’s been plenty of discussion about the issues in the secondary and there aren’t any terrible suggestions out here. Results speak for themselves. They…
