Why the fug do people keep saying he was playing for a tie? If our defense holds up, we get the ball again and go for the win.
What is sooooo hard to understand about that? It's not rocket science.
Everyone knew that if they got the ball back, regardless of whether or not we made the kick, they were going to march right back down the field like they did all day. Which they did.
Kicking the field goal was the WRONG decision, hands down. They make that field goal 9 times out of 10 and we lose the game 9 times out of 10. It was the wrong football decision for anyone who watched that game.
