Damn near killed me. I seriously at that moment in time thought Rivera was actually trying to lose the game, and i have never thought that before about a coach.

There is a time to go for it and a time not to.....if you have any, any football acumen, you dont go for a fake on the punt at this juncture of the game....Just a terrible call of amature proportion... they score at that point the game is over... we got lucky dispite fkin rivera and this ridiculous call...

as much sh*t that is thrown Ron's way around here being asleep at the wheel.

it might not have been great execution but it showed "balls".

Give the man credit when it's deserved.

Most of us think it showed stupidity.

Balls would be not running straight up the middle every play and actually trying to score with 4 minutes left.

Unfortunately it appears he has more balls than brains (which isn't saying much)

I don't know. We only have about $40 million worth of running backs.

At some point, we needed to find out if Nakamura could be another one.

That was by far the worst playcall of the game, I don't know what he was thinking on that one. Then again he looks like he rarely ever thinks about anything.

What's funny is that Nakamoron got an INT and no one cares because Freeman was playing duck hunt out there.

I've been thinking about it for a while, saying how it seems like Rivera has sabotaged this team this year. That fake punt might as well have confirmed it. (Why doesn't JR put this guy out of his misery?)

It made no sense when the defense was playing well.

Thanks for bringing that play up. I had almost forgotten about it. My God what an awful call.

Truthfully, at least he tried it. Terrible execution though. Nobody was expecting it. I guess leaving it in Nakaruma's hand was the mistake
