lol OP trusts that awful defense to make a stop more than he trusts the offense to gain 1 yard and seal the win

be sure to send in your resume as soon as we have a coaching vacancy because you're definitely carolina panthers material

That challenge actually hurt us lmao

We pinned them at the 1. No excuse

We didn't challenge it. It was a booth review inside 2 minutes.

You don't sit on a 1-point lead in Atlanta, with our poo defense. The game shouldn't have even been this close anyways.

The staff failed its men, AGAIN.

They go for it, don't get it, 99% of people complaining Rivera should've gone for it say Rivera should've punted...

The same fools that wanted us to go for it would be blasting the coaching staff if we didn't make the yardage needed on fourth down, so take that for what it's worth.

This team isn't bad, just a few players away and a totally different coaching staff from being a contender.

If we go for it, what if they stop us? Or what if there's another fumble? Boom... excellent field position for Atlanta. Meanwhile... if you punt, you give them an incredibly long field to deal with, with no timeouts and not much time left. That's exactly what we did. The fact is, we lost because of a miracle 60-yard pass. If you go back and play that last drive for Atlanta ten times, nine of them will result in the Falcons likely not even getting past midfield. I know the tendency after losses like this is to point fingers and hand out blame, but you've got to realize... this was a freak loss. I fully expect flaming to ensue, but so be it. Call me names and whatever... it won't bother me. You guys can disagree with me all you want. But these are the facts.

I disagree, buddy I had a sick feeling in my stomach as soon as we didn't go for it I knew it was over.

It was 4th down and less than a yard with the game on the line (most likely our postseason hopes as well) and we have a 6'5 250 QB with the will to punch out a yard under Kalil.

It was all on the coaching staff.

1.Not going for it.
2.Nakumura really has no business being on the field Martin makes that pick
3.The defensive call having that many guys in the box... Horrid.

Are you kidding me? Do you think there was zero chance to win by punting?

This is total hindsight bullshit. If you told me we can pin them at the 1 by punting it I do that every damn time.

so would I but the larger percentage says it flies into the endzone and they start at the 20. so you are gambling 20 yards of their offense to 1 yard of ours

hindsight? no? today reality provided us with proof that punting was in fact the wrong choice. so please keep making your points against pure logic and results that are in the past
