Said this in another thread...

 

Liked Rivera's call, hated Shula's play.

 

Ron goes with his gut now, and since we drove the length of the field prior to that play, he liked his chances.

 

But for some damn reason, Shula elects to throw in a play that required sufficient pocket time for Cam (which rarely happens). We needed a high percentage play to get us only two yards...and yet, the receivers were going 5-10 yards deep. C'mon now...

 

And I thought Shula was doing a decent job yesterday...but that playcall was Chud-esqe.

We were having trouble getting any push on the line with short yardage plays all day long so it made us have to pass. I would have just taken the points and put the pressure on the Jets offense to make a play

You can't look at it after the fact and criticize, you have to look it as Rivera did which was in context.  We had been successful on 10 out of 12 plays to that point and could salt the game away.  It wasn't like they had stopped us that much all day. Sure conventional wisdom is take the points but we have been aggressive all year and it has paid off for us.  Sure after the fact I would say take the points.  Otherwise I would have said go for it, so I have no problems which what he did.

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

Right on point. You have to take the good with the bad when you play/coach aggressively. Personally I will take the aggressive mentality win or lose hands down over  the conservative approach we were losing with before. We're not going to make every 4th down we go for. Ron was trying to step on their neck and was betting that if we didn't get it the Jets still would not be able to score enough to beat us. He was right. Our coach has stopped playing like he's scared, our fans need to stop too

I had no problem with the call not much difference between 10 pt lead and 13 pt lead...  

 

Playcall was not very good... would've preferred to see a run outside...

when you've got Cam and Tolbert and D-Will has looked good on the ground I don't get that kind of pass play.. I understand trying to go with a rollout or something where maybe Cam can make i happen with his legs if nobody is open but ugh.

Good decision, taking FGs screwed us vs the Saints, and while the Jets obviously aren't quite the offense NO is, you have to practice getting TDs, not FGs, if we want to win this week.

I didn't like the call in this particular situation, game, etc.  If we were playing the Saints I would feel differently.  I would have taken the three points there.

Eh, I'd argue you make the best decision to win the game, not practice for the Saints game.
