4th and 1 on Buffalo's 21

How about a really quick lineup and a QB sneak.

Every other team in the league gets a yard easily that way. We have a mammoth QB in Cam Newton and do we try it? Hell no, its not even in the playbook.

When your in a situation where a touchdown beats you even with the field goal you need to go for the win.

Think about it, even if we failed it would have run a few more seconds off the clock that might have ended the game late on in the Bills drive.

I think the 4th and 1 from the ATL game last season really messed this up for him.  He's scared now to even try.  He doesn't have the killer instincts that a coach needs.

It was right call IMO.

 

not really. A field goal would tie you, a TD would beat you. With a depleted secondary, you trust your huge franchise QB to get a yard on a QB sneak to win the game.

 

Its what a coach with guts would have done, and won the game as a result.

I agree with this completely. Even if you miss the first down, you are still up. Have to go for it there.

Especially when you are already up by 3. A touchdown by Buffalo loses the game anyway so you have eliminate their option to win the game. He is gutless and pathetic.

Its actually even worse than OP stated. Not only do we have high percentage short yardage runners. Not only has the offense performed well enough to earn the shot at getting the 1st. Not only was the secondary depleted. 

 

But a field goal was completely USELESS!!

 

Think about it. If we don't get it, they still have to drive the length of the field. A field goal still  wouldn't have beat us, only tied and KICKING THE FIELD GOAL ONLY PUT US UP BY 6!!

 

That was really just a bad, bad call.

    • Just from the movie. I didn't guess that she was bringing all the black dudes in, but I knew right away the family was collecting blacks and the mom was using hypnosis to keep them there. I was like, yep ... evil white people. Neat.
    • Has a visit with Carolina. Ran under a 7 second 3 cone drill. Underrated blocker, go watch him matched up vs Texas A&M. Reminds me of Jordan Reed and is bigger and faster than him when he entered the league     
    • ive dug and dug on Cam Robinson. more and more i think hes had bad coaching at Alabama. most scouts say that he has different footwork from one play to the next. when his footwork is right, hes a badass. he haS bad habits, but is the most talented big man in the draft when it comes to upside. he needs a great OL coach.  worst case he can start at right tackle tomorrow. then we could move daryl to guard if tray and norwell both leave. he gives us a lot of options and can be a dominant left tackle if he can get consistent footwork.  he handled Garrett. he didnt handle carl lawson. lawson is a tactician, thats why he could take advantage of robinsons bad habits.
