Bad play call that has been overloooked.

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.

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