Is anyone else wondering why the heck we called the play that resulted in the pick-six for Chicago?

Chicago had just scored and cut our lead to 19-14. We get the ball back with about 4 minutes to go. We have the chance to kill some clock and possibly make a field goal and make it an 8 point game.

What do we do on the very first play? Chud dails up a very risky pass to Steve Smith. I don't think it's a terrible idea to be aggresive with a pass, but that play call was just too risky. If there is one mistake (an overthrow, corner jumping the route, a slip), it's 6 the other way...and that is exactly what happened.

The ineptitude of this coaching staff is mind boggling.

I asked why before they hiked the ball.

Gotta call a run play and get a few yards. The Chicago defense was getting tired against the run. They may have been energized on that but yea, a comeback is always risky for a pick six.

For years, John Fox would get a lead and go super conservative as far as play calling. And everyone hated on him for it. So at least it's a change from that, fwiw...

I was furious when we lined up in shotgun during that situation.

I have no problem with the play call, Chicago was playing the run and it's generally a "safe" pass.

You knew the game was over as soon as the CB crossed the goal line. Despite the fact we still drove the field, on the road, and got a clutch FG from Medlock late, you still just knew, down deep in places you don't like to talk about at parties, you knew we were still toast.

people will hate anything we do no matter what and think we should do something different. You just can't win over some fans.

Also we weren't doing anything running on that defense. I liked that we were going to stay aggressive and try to go down and score again
