Just watched that series again. What in the actual fug was Shula thinking running THREE straight passing plays after a 2nd and 2??

Hmm Deangleo just gained 8 yards on a rush so there is no way the Jets will expect three passing plays in a row!

Totally agree with all of that. Playcalling on that set of downs was ridiculous. Dwill was beasting, should've trusted him, Tolbert or Cam to get it before it got to 4th down

Didn't have a single problem with the decision.

 

What I did have a problem with was the defense shitting the bed in the Jets drive immediately after.

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

That is also my concern. I have been pondering the same thought. We will see soon enough. I am hoping that coach doesn't go back to playing scared.

Didn't really like the call... you're playing a team starting a rookie qb and an offense that is definitely not much of a threat. If we were playing the Aints, then I would say go for it, not when you're playing a team you know your defense can stop.

If you are going to go for it on 4th then make the play call worthy of the gamble. A pass or run has to happen at that point.
We won despite ourselves on that play.
But odds favor you when you roll the dice on 4th.

yah fine with the decision just didn't like the playcalling.  on third and 2 if you think you're in a situation where you'd consider going for it on fourth, you should run the ball.  pretty much give you two plays to run for 2 yards.  threw three straight passes

You responded to my posts with very short, vague comments that just generally said you disagreed so I was having to try and guess your point of view. We just disagree, no biggie. To me him going for it was consistent with how he's called the games during our winning streak. We've coughed up WAY more games being too conservative in the second half than being aggressive so I was fine with it. I like the mindset. It's just my vote


Yea I get the reasoning, just a bad spot to go for it that time to me.

At least 86% of the huddle agrees with you.

Considering our opponent I would have taken the 3 points.


Same logic that was used during the bills game

Nope, two totally different situations.  We were only up by 3 against the Bills.  Big difference between going up 6 with a field goal and going up 13.  Plus there were less than two minutes to go in the Bills game.

I like the call. Everyone on here is always condemning playing not to lose, and Rivera was making that call to win the game. If that call works there is no way, barring a total defensive collapse, that the Jets come back from a 17-point deficit. It didn't work but it's not a bad call to make when you are up ten over an anemic offense.

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.

 

If 13 points is essentially 14 points we wouldn't have lost to Buffalo.

 

This is the philosophy of our team now. We stick to it. I did not like three pass plays in a row on 2nd and 2, but

RIVERBOAT SPITS ON FIELD GOALS! RIVERBOAT HUNGRY! RIVERBOAT WANT TOUCHDOWN!

I believe he should have went for it earlier when we kicked the 2nd FG.......but I'm still glad he is going for it and hopefully he goes for the kill earlier vs the Saints.

Shula had some wtf play calling throughtout the game. Like calling a run play on 2nd and 30 after the two holding penalties. Like seriously? We are going to try and run on 2nd and 30 and not try to get back half the yards? We might as well have just punted it to them on 2nd down instead.
