Is that (the Baxter) the only bad play you saw called? If so I think one play, out of however many we ran, is not indicative of "bad play calling". If you think we lost the game because Carr checked off to Baxter on that play, then I will have to disagree. If you come up with some other plays that were "conservative" or "bad", I might agree with your take. One play in the entire game isn't sufficient evidence to back it up IMO.
AJ, you did a much better job of summing up what I was trying to say.
