Rivera made the same mistake against the falcons last year. But then he called a bunch of rival coaches, and they told him he made the right call. He will never learn.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I didn't disagree with that call. Mainly because I didn't trust Shula to make the right call to get the first and second, because there was so much game left, and third, we were somewhere around our own 35 or 40 IIRC. Had it been in the 4th, absolutely.

And as made a abundantly clear in my posts, I hate Rivera, so I'm definitely not defending the idiot.

I don't know that anyone could make the wrong call there. Your QB is 6 foot 5, built like a linebacker, and has incredible drive in piles. put him under center, run him up the gut.

Rivera has proven time and time again that he does not have the stones for the gutsy calls.

Whether it was the right or wrong call, point still remains.

I don't know what you are talking about because our only 4th and inches to my memory was relatively early in the game on our side of the field. There was a ton of 4th and 2s. I did not disagree with a single coaching decision today. The players lost the game.

4th AND inches should be a easy convert with a QB like Cam on this team. We do nothing to take advantage of the one asset NO OTHER TEAM IN THE LEAGUE HAS. The falcons game last year isnt even the main head scratcher, i have been noticing this for the past 2 seasons.

There are a lot of teams that don't belong in the NFL because it happens every week.
