    Listening to Matt on 610, discussing the last drive. Kubes says we're gonna run it three times, make them burn time outs and kick the field goal ....

    Then he hits us with WE WEREN'T TRYING FOR THE TOUCHDOWN!

    Really? OMG ..... They WANTED to force the Jets to go 80 yards, with no timeouts and make a touchdown ....

    Wow .....

    The level of failure gets worse and worse. All I can do is just maniacally laugh. I don't know what else to do.

    Don't see how we can blame them for that, I would have been irate if we had thrown an in-completion there. Running three times was the right call. Teams are not supposed to be able to march 70 plus yards for a TD in under 50 seconds.

    No, it's self-preservation. It doesn't surprise me either. But, I have to laugh at how the hole keeps gettin' dug deeper.. and deeper..

    It was the percentage play. Even if Kubiak were as pessimistic about his defense as he should be it was the right move. There are PLENTY of things to get upset at Kubiak for, I just don't believe this specific instance is one of them. Just because our defense is one of the worst of all time it doesn't we mean we should onside kick everytime we score does it? (actually that sounds like a decent idea..... GAH)

    It was the right call. Removing time from the clock was more valuable than points. It's just that no one knew our secondary would lose it for us, which is still on Gary.

    Every one knew but Gary Kubiak. What an oracle ol' Kubes is.

    Guys, no reason to get angry over this. It's the same thing every coach in the NFL would do. Except maybe Bellicheck? Obviously they preferred a TD over FG. If not, they would have simply kneeled it three times. What Kubiak was simply saying is don't do anything stupid like get out of bounds, turn it over, or thrown an incomplete pass in an effort to try to get a TD. Killing time and timeouts was more valuable than 4 points. I would have been much more angry if they threw an incompletion.

    I agree with running 3 times, but I still think you try to run fir the TD. You could tell while watching it that the weren't trying for the TD. It actually looked thike they were avoiding the endzone. Sure run and kill the clock, but if you can get in and go up by 8 points, then that's what you do.

    I'd rather be up by 8 with 1:30 to go than to be up by 4 with 49 seconds.

    I agree it was the correct call, but did you notice we were snapping the ball with plenty of time on the play clock? On one down, we snapped around 10 seconds.

    If someone recorded this, could you add up the left over play clock time? I'm thniking if we would have let the clock run to 1 second each down, the Jets wouldn't have had time to make that play.
