I couldn't believe they went for it either. It was the first quarter. The score was 7-0.

I will never understand that mentality in pro football. You take the points when you can get them, especially against a defense like the Ravens.

You really think that Kubiak makes decisions based on how much the fans peepee hurtz? If so, he's a bigger numbnutz than I thought.

Logic fail.

The point is its the first quarter and its early in the season. There's no reason to go for it. Zero indication that we wouldn't be able to stay in that game with a field goal.

It also doesn't matter if we forced a fumble there. That has no bearing on Kubiak's decision making prior to their fumble. On top of that, hell we could have kicked the FG then forced the fumble.

3 + 7 = 10.

10>7.

you are the one who brought up Kubiak not kicking the FG because of the fans being upset. Now I remember why I didn't engage with you previously. You are kinda incoherent. I'll leave you be.

You wanna know what the turning point to yesterday was? Going for it on 4th down instead of kicking the field goal. That 3 points would have changed the mentality of the game from top to bottom.

Who doesn't take points when you are on the road? Especially against the Ravens.
Good post. I think it was a dumb decision too. Although I hesitate to call it the turning point. We still went into halftime only down 3 points. We scored 7 points in the 2nd half while giving up 16. What happened during halftime, I dont know. But the team that came out of the tunnel either didnt think they would win, or even that they could win.

1) "year" instead of the more standard "day"

2) probably type on a smartphone or tablet

I think that was the right call. I didn't care for that play, didn't care for the execution. But I liked the call.

You want Gary Kubiak to not be conservative? To take a risk? To tell his players, I believe in you? To give them an opportunity to earn your love..... that was it. That was our opportunity to pop them in the mouth.

Didn't happen.

But Wade's team came & answered the bell. Tim Jamison..... yup, Tim Jamison stepped up. Not those overpaid yahoos on offense, Tim Jamison manned up & got the ball back, all by himself. Stripped the ball, recovered the ball, gift wrapped a freak'n touchdown

& Even Steven's team almost gave that away.

why? Have you ever noticed that nearly every single coach you have ever watched has kicked a FG in this situation?

I agree with Vinny. You just dont see coaches passing up a 30 yard field goal in the first half when you are only down 7 with 7 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. Us getting the ball right back only proves that further. So instead of being up 10-7 we are tied 7-7.

And on top of that its not like we are that great in the red zone. Had we converted the 4th and 1 we still had 20 yards to go to cash in on the gamble. Had we been inside the 1 yard line that is a different story. In that situation you can take that risk because the payoff is 6 points. Not a first down with 20 yards to go for 6 points.

It was dumb to go for it and even more dumb to run the ball straight in to the strength of the Ravens defense on a short yardage play with our zone blocking offensive line. How many times had we converted on 3rd downs throwing the ball up untill that point?

I want Kubiak to be successful as much as anyone but dude does'nt seem to be improving as a head coach. Instead of doing the smart thing he just ran some play and "really wished with all his might" that somehow a first down would fall from the sky.

Oh and the only post that's "idiotic" here is your's. It's completely idiotic to sit here and make excuse after excuse after excuse for why a man can't even look around a corner, much less get this team to turn one.


What y'all call "impatience", us "sane" people call insanity. You "sunshiners" are the biggest joke on this board. You attack fellow fans and hurl insult after insult at them for just pointing out the obvious. You tell them they're being "impatient" or you even tell them that "they don't deserve a team" (which is BY FAR the DUMBEST thing ever written on this board.). Well us "sane" people just look at y'all like your a bunch of loons...you're wanting to do the same thing year in and year out, but you expect different results...now what does that make you again?

Oh P.S.

Don't tell me to go follow another team.. Who are you to judge a person's fandom? You aren't special and you aren't a bigger fan than anyone else who posts on this board so get off your high horse.

That's why i already know, it's not gonna matter whether we finally get to the playoffs this year or not, once we get there & if we lost, the same people will be coming out of the woodworks with the same crap.
