It's always easy to rate a decision when you know the result.

Ron gave trust in his offense, this time, it didn't work out.

was this the series where it was 1st and goal and they threw 4 straight passes and failed? not a single run attempt by cam or tolbert.

I liked it at the time and I'm ok with it still. Not a big fan of the play call, though it would have likely been successful had Cam stepped up just a foot.

Personally, I didn't like it.

 

It's much easier to get a TD and try for a FG to tie, vs. Get two TD's or a TD and two FG's to tie.

 

Cam was gimpy, and the middle of that D is very tough to run on.

I was hoping for the FG. However there are too many people that want him to be riverboat Ron until it fails. The guy sitting behind me at the game wanted us to go for every 4th and short including this one. Sure enough after not getting it they drive down and score and he's telling his buddy how important it was that we just kick the FG. You can't have it both ways people

No.

But I think that series was the Olsen failed jump pass, Tolbert run that was destroyed and then the throw out the endzone. FG

The momentum swing went strongly back to the Jets favor after that defensive stop and they drove the ball all the way down the field after that. It could have cost us the game.

 

HOWEVER.... you dance with the philosophy that brought you here. You can't take a 1-3 team that you turned into a 9-4 team and start playing it safe now that you're actually winning games. "Okay, I have done enough to probably save my job now I can start coaching the way I did for my first two seasons again". Nope. Be consistent.

Also, it was no guarantee that we would have gotten a touchdown on that drive anyway.  Who's to say we don't stall out after converting the 4th down?

That play IMO is the real test of Riverboat. If you are going to gamble then you it is a certain fact you will eventually fail......and this was the first example of it legitimately blowing up on him.

The real test will be Riverboat continuing to be Riverboat going forward and not letting that impact him into leaning toward #OldRon the next time
