Then you are basically giving Nakamura a free pass

Come to think about it... It is Rivera's fault!!!

He's the one that brought Nakamura on the team in the first place

no I'm not. he screwed up because thats what he does. a smart coach would know that he and that defense was performing badly and would have avoided getting in that situation to begin with. if you know your defense isn't holding the other team back then you dont put them in a situation where the game depends on them. its that simple. they had a choice to keep the ball or give it to the other team and let them score.

and he did it again and again and again and it cost us wins.

For putting them in a situation where there is a minute left, the other team has to drive the length of the field to tie the game, and the other team has no timeouts. Most defenses would relish being in that situation in a divisional playoff game.

i don't care what defenses would relish.most offenses would relish getting on the field in any situation against a defense they had been abusing all day, esp. when they knew they would get a chance to throw to a guy getting covered by some midget/poor excuse for a DB like nakamura.

rivera gave them a present and a favor by giving them the ball.

fox has gone on record several times that his philosophy doesn't necessarily revolve around outsmarting or out-scheming the other team but rather beating them up using a combination of physicality and perfect execution.

too bad this is the NFL and most teams are quite evenly matched, particularly when you get to the playoffs.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. If Denver throws and has an incomplete pass, then Baltimore gets the ball back with nearly two minutes, a much easier task than going the full length of the field with a minute fifteen. The odds favor doing what they did. The vast majority of NFL coaches would do exactly what Fox did, and for that matter, exactly what Rivera did, probably even Belichek and Coughlin. But those guys probaly would have made sure their defenders were in the proper position.

I bet is LSU's coach had it to do over again in the Peach Bowl, he would have run the ball instead of giving Clemson a shot by throwing an incomplete pass on third down.

the bar is set awfully low there. 3 winning seasons out of 9. giddyup.

True, does it look like the organisation will change that ?
