Seriously? What was that?

It is easy field goal range for our K.

It was clearly not an attempt to achieve a first down

It took virtually no time off bc of change of possession

If Gano wasn't hurt.....I would have to believe this is some crazy Ron logic where he was showing mercy on NY and telling them he wasn't putting points up when he could in a blowout. If that is true.....well....I wouldn't think that was a good mindset....and that is as nice as I can state it

38-0 no point in going for the fg. Every coach with any respect for football does that. I know we are rarely up big, but how do you not know that.

We need all the practice we can get going for 4th downs. 

 

Even if it was just practice for Rivera to actually call it.

That was a completely strange and crazy play unless Gano was hurt. You aren't curious about what the heck that was?

It's called our GM is from NY and so is Blackburn, Hixon etc, there is no point in kicking a FG when you're up 38 with 4 minutes left.

Let's spin this positively: Rivera made a statement to his players that they would go for it more often than not from here on. Since runs were chewing up the field on that drive, they went with a run.

Really, the agressive move was bombing it to Ginn while up as much as we were. After that, this was basically a preseason game.

I assumed it was to run more time off the clock and technically it did.

It is from all the crap Ron heard about not going for it on 4th down.  He said screw it - I am going for this one too.
