You don't give the other offense the chance to win the game when you have the ball in your hands. You win or lose with your offense on the field in overtime in that position. I don't care what happens. I would have respected Ron if he had made the call to try to win the game. If not for a miraculous shank we WOULD have lost that game with our defense that gave up 40 points on the field and couldn't stop the Bengals from moving the ball all day long. Cam was in a rhythm and we needed 2 yards at most to continue the drive.
A tie does basically nothing for us. You have the ball in your hands. Your defense has sucked. You can win it with a touchdown. There is NO time left for another drive even if you get a defensive stop. Zero timeouts. The BEST you could hope for if you didn't convert there is a tie. No chance of winning the game. It was a horrible call.
