4th quarter.


AZ has all their timeouts. Panthers have 1 timeout left.

We are up 27-24. 2:36 left on the clock. We run into a 4th and 2 situation on their 38.


Does Rivera go for the first down, attempt a long field goal or punt?


What do you want him to do in this situation?



*** To give you an idea of the game flow.

Lets say we have 6 sacks.

Palmer is 28-44 for 316  yards and  passing 2 TD's and 1 INT.

Their other TD was set up by a long punt return that allowed Mendenhall a 3 yard TD run.


* As for us we are 10-16 on converting 3rd downs but 4-4 on 3rd and 3 or less and Gano has already connected on a 49 yard FG with ease..

Man, I hope RR has really turned the corner cos he said they went into the Giants game knowing they had to score TD (duh!). Cam once said that the way to win is to dominate, ie, keep going at the opponents throat until the game is over. The last thing this team needs is another TD under two minutes to lose the game!

They only put up 13 against a putrid Buc's team.

If Palmer is sacked 6 times he will be dead. That's my prediction.

Go for it. Our track record says that if we punt we lose.

24 points seems like alot from them, that being said it depends on the flow of the game honestly, that's more of a spur of the moment thing not pre-determined

It really just depends on how well we were doing on offense. Considering the hypothetical score of 27-24 and our 3rd down efficiency, it would probably mean we were moving the ball rather well (Arizona, too)....which means I would take my chances and go for it.


But I'll go a step further....If points were hard to come by and both scores were in the teens (still up by 3), I would probably test that leg of Gano's.


And then there's that gritty 3rd situation that we all love....where both teams are kinda moving the ball and then kinda not. The scores are still pretty low for both teams and overall, it's been a really sloppy game. However, the team with the ball last (almost always not us) takes it down the field in one full swoop and goes up by 4 points. Yeah....if it's a situation like that, I would probably go for it. Seen it go the other way so many times.

Well the Cards are sporting the 3rd ranked rush D in the league, we aren't that great converting 3rd and shorts over 1 yard it seems(didn't look it up). If we are that deep in their territory I attempt the coffin corner punt. If as you say the D is playing well, let them build some confidence and go out there and get the win. It would be a huge boost for them going forward.

I'd want to go for it. Don't have much of a reason for my opinion other than I hate conservative "play not to lose" tactics at the end of games, even if they work.
