I'm scared we might see Martin next week...and that he might make us all eat crow.

not going for it on 4th and 1 was the right move. everyone who disagrees is dumb.

our defense, namely nakamura, blew the game for us.

Not the way we were running the ball. Our short yardage runs were being stuffed all day.



We could spread out 5 wide and toss a flanker screen if its there or run Cam or Stewart, there are things that can be done to clear out the middle of a defense.

Our coaches are just too stupid to realize this.

NE has historically had a field day with short yardage runs going 5 wide.

Bill Belichick and his Superbowl rings say hi.

So does Mike Smith, who continued to own us today and went for it on 4th and 1 last year in an even more dire situation (on their own side of the field IIRC) and still made the playoffs.

Dumb. Real dumb.

And that's why going for it was the right call.

I know my team, and I knew if we punted the ball we would lose. Just like we did at home against the Saints last year.

8 point lead is the same as a 1 point lead.
GTFO of here with that fail, punting would be the correct call if they needed a TD.

Shocking to me that 7/10 believed that Atlanta was going to take the ball from deep in their field(20yd line at worst most likely)and kick a game winner with 44 seconds and no time outs. The odds greatly favor defense in that situation no matter who is playing.

While I agree there is a big difference that wasn't my point. My point is the defense made a stand then after getting gashed most of the day. Why wouldn't Rivera think they could make a stand when they actually had been getting a ton of pressure and frustrating Ryan all day....

Sorry, when we didn't go for it on fourth and one....I knew that collectively are coaching staffs balls shriveled up and we were doomed to lose...this game I am not blaming the team but the coaches...as a side note wtf were we trying to accomplish on the last drive of the first half, no points was the plan...GTFO

We were up by 8 points, so I knew we wouldn't lose it, but the offensive play calling at the end of that game was terrible as well.

Right and that also was a game that saw us converting on fourth and less then one inside the 10, so who's to say the same wouldn't have happened today. I've already said if I was the coach I would have gone for it, but I can also fully understand why they chose to punt. It can definitely be argued punting was the right move, while going for it was the ballsy move. I'm just not going to crucify the coaching staff for making a call that the majority of NFL staffs would have made....
