Grantland: Punting on 4th-and-1 candidate for worst coaching move of the year

98 posts in this topic

Punting was not a bad call. Everyone knows if we wouldn't have gotten it they would just do screen pass to turner or tell tony to go out there run 5 to 10 yards and cut back lol that's the only plays they run on offense but including they have a beast kicker it was a smart call. everyone is just complaining now because we couldn't stop them at the 1 with no timeouts. Just think if we gave the ball to anyone of our running backs and they didn't get it yall would sit here and be like why didn't we just punt and make them work for the drive instead of a couple screen passes and a field goal.

Fans always go for it.

The punt was a smart play. Nakamura getting beat was not. Cam failing to convert on 3rd was not. There were a variety of bad plays that ended up negating the good plays over the course of the game. So long as adjustments are continually made I'll be patient. I'm going to need to see better clock management, play calling, and not waiting until the end of a game to get aggressive. Start aggressive and crush the other teams hopes and dreams!

Most head coaches would have done the same.

my biggest issue with punting in that situation was that it went against the aggressive style that El Pantera spoke so much about bringing to the team. I'm not saying to go for it on fourth down everytime but if theyre going preach about being aggressive then they need to be aggressive.
