Updated with a shiny new poll!

 

 

What are your thoughts on this move? 

 

I didn't like the decision at the time, and I definintely didn't like it after Cam took the sack.  The defense had been playing well.  Take the 3 points to go up by two touchdowns essentially. 

 

Bad Riverboat, bad.

I was cool with it because it would still be a 2 possession game regardless and Rivera wanted to end the game then and there. Actually I believe that kind of move is the reason why he is Riverboat Ron.

Yeah,  13 point lead is not much different than a 10 point lead. 

 

I liked the decision, just not the play call.

That's the general argument....but I would counter that the Jets are much less likely to score two touchdowns, or a TD and two FGs.

 

The risk was not greater than the reward IMO.  The move could have really cost the Panthers but luckily we pulled out the W with a blocked punt and the INT score.

100% agree with Coach. 10-13 isn't a big difference. Two touchdowns and we would have lost the lead no matter what. Ron trusted our defense. We have up a long scoring drive to the Jets but, in the end our defense stuck it out and got us a W.

 

Correct move IMO.

If you embrace the whole "Riverboat Ron" thing......then you have to accept it simply will have to utterly fail on occassion

TD there was stepping on there neck and ending it.  FG doesn't do that much and doesn't change it from being a 2 possession game.

 

also, Riverboat doesn't call the play only the decision to go for it.  I think Shula has been "off" in recent weeks in the redzone.
