Default Someone tell me WHY!

down by 2 tds.

you punt on 4th and inches in the fourth quarter.

then punt again.



Please, someone, anyone give me a GOOD answer!

How many coaches in the NFL or High school even would have punt right there? What are you playing the game for if not to win.

I know there are some people that know football out there..........
Am I wrong?

virtually all of them?

I'm no fan of the coaching but weren't we fairly deep in our own end? Punting seemed like a no-brainer IMHO. There was too much time left to get desperate.

We had a better chance scoring with our defense than with our offense today.

ok, lets put it like this... chances you can make the first down = 25%

chances you can punt and win the game with an exahausted defense, down by 15 points, and 5 minutes left in the game = 0%

get it now?

5 minutes left down by 15 we should have went although I think our chances of making it were closer to 2.5% than 25% LOL.

Default Most embarassing play of the day

Post it here:

I vote for the play when Carr hit Gaffney in the right elbow. I think Gaffney was just assuming Carr would be sacked and didn't bother even checking the play.

There were so many embarassing plays, but I would have to agree. This game put the franchise back five years (and we are only 4 years old!!!)

He certainly didn't look like he was expecting the ball, but then again he hasn't been available that much for the preseason practices. We keep Hollings instead of another WR. None of our receivers really know how to get open.......................... May be we need to hire Rice to instruct our WR's. Might be a great move. OOPS we might have to get rid of a coach. On second thought, I guess we couldn't do that because it would upset the apple cart.....................

We were on our own 33. I don't blame them for punting. We still had a shot at the win if we hold them and score and get the onside. If we don't convert, the game is over right there. They are already in field position.
