Why punting was right call

18 posts in this topic

My Rams faced a very similar situation last week versus Seattle. Fourth and short near midfield, not much time left. They punted, only instead of pinning Seattle down at the one the Seahawks got it at the 20. The net result of that call? 27 yards, I think. But the Rams intercepted Seattle during the drive to secure the victory.

How can one criticize Rivera without also criticizing Fisher?

Were you starting Nakamura and Norman in your secondary?

this doesnt tell us WHY it was the right call, just confirms that most (defensive) coaches want to believe in their defense, especially one that played pretty damn tough the previous 59 minutes.

Rams don't have Cam Newton, Stewart, Tolbert.....and probably weren't averaging 5 yards a carry while putting up 200 yards rushing in that game. Rams also aren't as successful in 1 yard to go scenarios.

Atl passing attack is also light years ahead of Seattle and the Rams D is less inconsistent than Carolina's..

So? I fail to see the similarities n scenarios......

Most times the defense holds when you pin the other team at their one yard line. Rivera's call put his team in position to win and that's all you can ask.

All the criticism is in hindsight. If he'd gone for it and didn't get it you'd see outrage that he went for it. I think it was the right call too.

    • I assure you the high BP is not genetics. I was told the same. That's an excuse for them to sell you meds forever.
    • Senate asked to be briefed on Syria.  They asked to be briefed on NK.  That is what they do when someone is threatening action or acting and they know nothing.  Just because the someone asked for something doesn't mean why Trump is having an unusual briefing doesn't matter and there isn't a why to the timing of it.  Did he hold one like this for Syria after he bombed them and everyone in Congress asked to be briefed about WTF Trump was thinking big picture?
