Just listened to Ron's presser, and he was asked what his thinking was during the last couple minutes of the 1st half... he said that his philosophy in running a 2 min drill from your 20 yd line is that you do not call timeouts until you get close to the 50.... said you don't want to leave time on the clock for the opposition....

Yeah, I heard it at the time. What he didn't address is that teams run the hurry up offense until they need to use a timeout. We didn't. We operated with no sense of urgency whatsoever.

I'm sorry Ron. In my book, you wussed out. You were afraid we'd make a mistake, so you didn't go for it. Maybe we get 7 points there and easily win. Maybe we get 3 and squeak out a close one. Maybe we throw a pick 6 and lose the game. So what? We lost anyway.

Yeah, you actually have to try to make it to the 50 for that to mean anything....

Even after you said all of that... There were 11 players on the field (all vets) (2 Team Captains) that failed to call a timeout as well.

Chalk it up to a learning experience that will NEVER be forgotten

In theory, it would have worked. However, no sense of urgency. We wasted 10 seconds between plays at one point. You take one when you have 3. After that, then you wait till you break the 50. Ideally, it takes no more than 2 plays to go from the 20 to the 50. We didn't do that. We have to burn a timeout there. That would have bought us enough time to draw something up and get a big chunk play. What the actual fug were we thinking there?
