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.
