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 more upset with the draw play on 2nd and 30.

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.

 

 

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.

I like that he went for it.

 

I actually remember the previous 2 years.

 

Riverboat Ron >>>>>> Ron Rivera

Considering our opponent I would have taken the 3 points.
