You failed to mention that belichick was more successful at converting those 4th downs than not.. so yeah.

 

So you have an actual stat to back that up, right?  You're not just pulling it out of your ass?

 

Anybody will tell you that the vast majority of NFL coaches make that same call on fourth down unless they're in dire danger of losing.  The Panthers were winning at the time and the defense was playing well.

 

But heck, let's just go for it on fourth down every time.  After all, IT'S FOOTBALL! :rolleyes:

I was watching that and thinking we never have a coach with balls enough to win the game. Imagine the Panthers with Harbaugh as coach

Harbaugh who??? Says Jerry.

4th and 2....up and home against an opponent that wasnt doing much?

That doesn't seem smart....not with how our D was playing. Keep playing field position. Can't set them up

Guess we disagree. Bottom line is we lost with the way we did it. So it didn't work. We will never know what would have happened had we gone for it there :- We needed momentum on offense and failed to get any in the second half. That could have been the spark. Like I said. We will never know. Tired of losing seasons. I hope we win next week.

We got the ball back...

Offense was marching down field....all the way to the Seattle 10. We had momentum. Then we fumbled.

I know very few coaches go for it on fourth except in desperate situations, and anyone with an even halfway decent knowledge of the NFL can tell you that.

 

I also know from reading your posts that you don't know much about situational football.

Going for it on fourth and inches in your own territory when you have only a slim lead and your defense has been playing well, isn't a presence of balls, its a lack of brains.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
