Luck is an extremely critical aspect in the game of football and nobody likes to think about it because you just can't strategize for the bounce of the ball.
Case in point: DeAngelo's fumble came about because he spun around just in time for Chancellor to have a good angle at hitting ball out. If he had simply fell to the ground rather than turning back towards the field he'd be down, we'd keep the ball and likely score.
Against Buffalo, Luke reaches out and taps Stevie Johnson as he runs by, likely on reflex alone. The ref calls an incorrect pass interference call instead of defensive holding and it negates the game-clinching interception.
Football is probably one of the most luck-influenced sports in the entire world. And it sucks that our luck has been pure shite.
Damn right. I'm not one to believe in "bad luck" or "curses" but I do know we lost, what like 16 straight coin tosses?
Unreal. Maybe we do have black cat syndrome.
