Default calling

I believe the best example of Palmer's questionable play calling occurred in
the Patriots game in '03. With the score tied and time running out in regulation, the Pats punted and we got possession at the Pats 35yd line-
a 53yd field goal attempt right then if we do nothing. On 1st down, the
Texans run a pitchout sweep to Mack, our slowest back, and we get an
8yd loss--out of field goal range, now. Our final play on this drive is a hail
mary throw...all the Texans had to do was stay put or just 'inch' forward
to try and win with a field goal---incredible!!!
