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

Missing the FG also could have lost the game

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!

And if he misses the fg (a difficult kick at that distance even in good weather) they start with great field position. And if he falls down, or the snap of a wet ball is fumbled, it could be much much worse. In that weather, its the right call.

People take too much football knowledge from fuging Madden....I understand you can make a 60 yarder in pouring rain on the game...that doesn't make it realistic....

Our defense was playing very well. I'll take a 6pt lead, and give them the ball on the 20 with 1:30 left any day.

Especially with a rookie QB....I mean I could understand peoples frustration if they had Tom Brady at QB but it wasn't....

If Munnerlyn had hands, you would have seen right away the brilliance of the punt call.

would have loved to have the three points, but not trying the field goal was the correct call. too much risk, besides, gabbert's a pretty good rookie qb, for his 1st start. no need to give him a short field

maybe you should just have thought it through instead of having knee jerk reaction and running online to tell people that the coach should do the opposite of the right thing?

I def agreed with the 2 pt conv. If something crazy happened (kick return) and they scored two TDs they would have had 24, meaning the 2 pts keeps us within 8

The chances of that happening are way low, and you can't formulate a game plan around the 1% oddball play.

After TD, we're up by 4. At this point, if they score another TD we tie with a FG and need a TD to win.

We have a 95% chance to hit the PAT. If they score at TD, we need a FG to win.

We have a 40%ish chance to get a 2pt conversion. Which only helps us if they score two TDs in the last 4min.

Up by 5 >>>> Up by 4

Up by 6 > Up by 5

The right play is to take the high percentage PAT to go up by 5, which gives us a huge advantage over being up by 4. It was a bad risk to go up by 6, which doesn't give us much of an advantage over being up by 5. High risk for low gain...bad gamble.

I understand what everybody's saying about it being wet, but unless u watched a different game than I did it didn't rain in the second half. Granted the field was very mushy, there wasn't 2 or 3 inches of water standing on the field like some who have posted here have expressed. Plus for kicks you get a new ball, so there went the theory of a water logged ball.

I would have kicked the FG to guarentee the win. If he misses it, trust in your defense. Didn't we do that anyways?

Yep, I thought so.

And I for one had no faith that our secondary wouldn't give up a TD... They did it right b4 half.

Like I said earlier... After the game and in hindsight it's EASY for u all to disagree with me. You take points when u can get them.

Mare has a very strong leg, I have faith that He would have made it.

It doesn't matter though. We won, and I'm happy

I also wouldn't have gone for 2. No point. If you miss it, and then they score, all u can do is tie with a FG as opposed to winning with a FG. No biggie.... This time
