The No FG Attempt at End of Half

39 posts in this topic

the chance of making that hail mary is pretty close to 0%

try the field goal, you miss it, so what. give yourself a chance at points

This should make you feel better:

No coach since 2002 has thrown a Hail Mary instead of attempting a 51 yard FG. That's not bombastic statement. It's fact. 16/16. 12 made FG

Wind or no wind,the field goal is a higher percentage play than a hail mary thrown out the back of the end zone!

He got a 45 yarder in off a lucky bounce. I seriously doubt he would've been able to make the FG at the end of the half

Your probably right that he misses the kick. However the chance he makes the field goal is greater than the chances of scoring a TD in that situation. That's why any other coaching staff in the NFL would have kicked the field goal.

What an idiot.

He really, really, really is the dumbest coach ever.

@Joe Person

Ron Rivera said they didn't try 50-yard field goal at the end of the first half because he was concerned about the Cross wind. It's last play of half, take a chance

coaches this year have tried both a 64 and 66 yarder at the end of the half

worried about cross winds? lmao

hail mary almost never works, even a tough FG gives you much better odds to come away with points

its too windy to kick a fg... throw a 50 yard bomb into the endzone Cam! wind only affects the kicking game!

what goes on in Ron's head just baffles me

Medlock made a 45 yarder that looked like it had plenty of distance.

I'd say you have at least a 20-30% chance to hit that 51 yarder, if not more. The hail mary is basically 0%.

It's just scared football. Rivera not giving his guys a chance to make a play.

This is why I question his intelligence outside of just football.

You guys do understand that a short field goal is returable?

Plus the a blocked kick, which is more likely on a long one with lower angle.

And to chase down the return you have like 2 fast guys and the rest big/slower once.

So it is to a no risk option like most of you seems to think.

That being said, I still kick it.

Medlock is known for having a big leg on FGs. Being short wasn't a problem.
