Only reason I can think of is the mushy field. But yea I think he should have tried it. That was a Fox move.

Up by 6 is was the right move on that field. It wasn't a Fox move, it was the right move. If it was a 2 or 3 point game, then it is a different decision I think.

The punt was the correct move. Get over it.

You guys are all ridiculous!

IF* Gabbart leads them down and they win... Then what?

It's only a good move cause it worked out.

I completely disagree with the call. Take those 3 points and put the game out of reach!

Yeah, wet and heavy ball, sloshy field that could have the kicker slipping - plus, if you screw it up the Jags are in good field position. I say it was the right call too. Make them march it downfield...Which they did, thanks to a couple of passes and a bad pass interference call. We squeaked it out, but an ugly W is a W.

and when we miss a very long fg in bad kicking conditions with the ground being soft and mushy, and they get the ball 20 yards ahead of where they were and score to win, what would you have said?

50 yd fg in 2 inches of water is not the right call

It was the correct call. I thought he should have kicked the FG earlier however... Rivera doesn't seem to have complete confidence in Mare yet or he plays a little more field position ball than we thought he would.

I'm not arguing with you guys. When I posted this, the game was still on and ^He was running clock deciding. It's easy for anybody to now after the fact to criticize. Nobody here is man enough to admit that this call could have costed us the game... I'm Super glad it didn't, but I didn't like the call.

We just picked up our 3rd win in 2 yrs...

I am Not mad

I love how fans are entirely ignorant of how weather conditions impact situational football calls. Under normal circumstances, you probably trot your kicker out there for the try. MAYBE you do it. With the wet conditions... NO NFL COACH IN THE LEAGUE would have tried that. When you have to plant the ball in pure MUD in 3 inches of water, the trajectory is impacted. Mare was stoked when he put that 35 yard kick through and it was as flat as a pancake.

You punt the ball there 10/10 times. The only reason we went for 2 there is because the extra point was no gimmie in this weather.

Rivera made the right call.....you don't attempt that fg when you the option is to make a rookie in his first start drive the field with no timeouts in poor weather
