Yes, Brien deserved some blame as he did miss the kick. But the vitriol directed at him and the excuse making for Herm after that game was nauseating. And the knee jerk reaction of trading away a #1 for Doug Freakin JOlley (and potentially missing out on drafting Aaron Rodgers) and taking a f-ing PK in rd 2???? SOJ.
Oh man .. now I'm sorry I even went there!

So many wounds that have never truly healed..
