Bill Barnwell: Worst Coaching decision of the year goes to.....

78 posts in this topic

Surprise, Surprise another Grantland article bashing the Panthers. The worst coaching decision this year was John Fox deciding to stay conservative (in a playoff game) and run the ball on 3rd and 7 to ice the game against the Ravens. You've got Peyton Manning as your QB and you run the ball to ice the game?!?!? Everyone knew it was coming, it's John fugn Fox.

Bill Barnwell is a fat looking assclown why anyone posts his poo is beyond me.

Good point...

That's a good description sir.. Now I know what he looks like

Pretty sure Chud called the play... Although Rivera should've stepped up and said "Chud you're going full retard" I still blame Ol' Chud

chud made the decision to punt?

shouldn't have been his call.

it's basically the same thing.

conservative call at the worst possible time. you give the other team an opportunity to win/tie rather than you finding a way to keep the ball and the win.

it's making the mistake of trusting your defense to protect the lead in an era that heavily favors the deep pass. it's dumb.

if this was the only time that rivera made calls like this last year, i'd consider it an abberation, but it wasn't.

You know your owner sucks when the coach pulls that poo and still kept his job.

It was a textbook situation that failed because of a safety that forgot all the fundamentals on how to play the position. The actual punt was executed to perfection and with the lackadaisical issues we were having with the OL, there were no guarantees that we would get that 1st down unlike last year which would have been an automatic "duh"...especially with the opposition knowing what we would do. Just because we have a 100+ million dollar backfield doesn't mean jack when we have an OL performing like ass.

The issue is that our defense wasn't firing on all cylinders early in the season. Even though we dropped them near their goal line, I had a sneaking suspicion that they were going to roar right back. If I was coach, I probably would have gone for it because the offense had more going for them than the defense at that point of the season...which shows how much of a crappy team we were early on.

IMO, Rivera has done worse than the Naka-fail. The pillowy soft coverage against the Bears in the final minutes annoyed me more. I probably would have lost my mind if I watched the last Tampa Bay game. The game against the Chiefs was inexcusable. And so on...

I swear this is getting pathetic.

The Huddle has turned into nothing more than a bitch and whine circle jerk with most if you.

No legit discussion.....just one thread after another bitching and moaning.

The Saints game at home too.

When i watched the Falcons game I was elated when we pinned them inside the one yard line. I don't fault him for not going for it honestly. There is a time and place for conservatism.
