They ran 2? times on that drive how much time could have been saved with incomplete passes?
Looking at the play sequence, probably about 35 seconds.
Hate on the coaching staff all you want. They aren't perfect (no coaching staff is) but I'm more interested in better execution/implementation and elimination of turnovers by the guys on the field. Their gameplan was good enough to win vs. SD and their 2nd half adjustments were good enough to overcome Detroit. This has been beaten to death but by winning the turnover battle these first two weeks we'd be at least 1-1.
The coaching staff is an easy target but for every running play in a failed series that someone beyatches about (hence: terrible play call), I can show you two or three (or more) running plays in a successful drive that are conveniently forgotten because there were points scored at the end of the drive.
