To make it even more baffling, when we got the ball, they called a quick out to the sideline for 5 yards. So explain to me the purpose for that play. If RR had no intention of going for the field goal, why throw the out? To get additional yards for a hail mary pass that sailed clear through the end zone? No part of that sequence makes sense.
He should have just taken the knee. Frankly, it would have made more sense than what we actually did.
It truly is baffling. And what I don't get is even most casual fans know what the situations dictate in regards to what call to make. The stuff he's deciding to do is like going for it on 4th and 15 from your own 5. There is a long history of coaching and statistics to back up what decision to make in any given situation and he almost always chooses the one that is most detrimental. I just don't understand it.
