If Rackers nails it, then this thread wouldn't exist.

Who cares.

Kicking the FG was the smart play. It was well within his range and too many things could happen that could give you a chance at nothing. Muffed snap (or one into your backside like the poor Eagles center last night), sack, receiver unable to get out of bounds, or even an interception. Matt doesn't exactly have great arm strength and if they run a play there the D knows it's going to the sideline. This would tell me to jump the route and you could look at a pick 6 going the other way. With no timeouts it was the only smart option.

Now, if it was a 50 yard try or something I'd rather see a pass into the endzone.

You are 100% correct.

You do not run another play there.

Not a bad move, I think if it's Madden or something I would throw one to the endzone just to see if I can score....

But really, Rackers seemed like he rushed his routine by quite a bit and then....yikes, He missed that FG by like 30 feet.

If we have to dig this deep into the game plays to start complaining about a coaching decision, then either you don't like the coach or you just like to complain.

we had no TO's & you gotta know that the defense is guarding the sidelines. If schaub's sacked & or the pass is completed & the WR doesn't get out of bounds, we dont get a shot a points there.

don't really see why this is a bad decision on kube's part there.

THIS was a WTF Kubiak Moment IMO
This is why Madden is killing the common sense of football fans....

In Madden, absolutely go for the points, The AI is spotty, the middle of the field is usually wide open and I can control what the WR does...

in reality, that is a video game , this is real life and the AI on the other team is a hell of allot smarter and reacts better...

take the 3, go into the locker room up on the #6 ranked defense in the NFL and come and make plays in the second half.

I didn't have a problem with that particular play. I was more annoyed with the plays before it when we had 25+ seconds left and we took our final time out.

The Texans chose the field goal at that point for the simple reason that that is how Kubiak coaches. The argument can be made to take a shot at the TD and leave enough time for the kick if it fails. The argument can be made to try to get a little closer and then kick. The argument can also be made that the immediate three point attempt is the right call.

Kubiak has been here for years. He's proven that he will usually take the conservative approach. In hindsight it is easy to second guess; in foresight the Texans will usually go with the safer play.

That's what runs through the heads of coaches that coach timidly.
A guy going for the jugular would not even fathom such a scenario happening. He would have complete faith in his team to perform in a clutch manner.

Wow, Madden football and Arena League are really killing fans' NFL IQ's. I'm no Kubiak defender, but even when he does something right, people are calling him out for it.

The Jags have one of the best defenses in the league and the worst offense. You take the points when they're there. So, I could see why you would go ahead and kick the field goal and not risk anything.

Not saying I would do the same, I'd probably take a shot at the end zone, but it wasn't some unfathomable decision or anything.

or smart coaches....watched belichick do damn near the exact same thing in the pats / steelers game before the half. the only real difference was that he had a TO so he ran the ball on like a 3rd & 35 or something like that then called his final TO..........& the kicker hit the FG.

Rich Gannon did take time away from his love for Jacksonville's defense to mention it was a good decision on Kubiak's part and he gave valid reasons as to why.

Your silly if you actually want to run that. The run would take 3 or 4 seconds max, then the ref has to get the ball and position it, everyone has to scramble to get set then spike it. You're cutting it really close, especially if something happens to the ball carrier where he doesn't get up immediately
