So, who the F punts on the opponent's 40 with 12 seconds left on 4th down?
I still cannot get over this. I can't think of a single time in modern football I've ever seen any team curl up into a ball and announce to the world what a bunch of gutless p*ssies they are...

Did even Herm ever pull this?

I could understand MAYBE on your own 40. But on their 40?

we do obviously

Almost forgot that nugget of fail. :facepalm:

and Crennel's explanation:

"There's a chance for something to go wrong on every play"

Maybe we should just punt on first down then and not take chances.

I was at a high school football game earlier this year when the local team (Shawnee Mission West) did the same damn thing. They were actually at about their own 30 with 5 seconds left in the first half, and the score was tied.

When they sent the punt team out, I thought "WTF, a punt can be returned for a touchdown! What a stupid call!".

The punt was returned for a touchdown. That was the stupidest call in a football game I've ever seen.

Until today.

I thought the same thing when we ran the ball three times in Saints territory at the end of the regulation to play for the tie. Who doesn't play for the win there? The Chiefs don't.

Romeo Crennel.

Who calls a timeout when the opponent has a first down with 2:43 left on the clock?

That call blew my mind.

We had two timeouts left. That means you wait until they run a play before calling your first timeout so that after the 3rd down play, you still have the 2 minute warning to stop the clock.

Calling a timeout before the first down play means that the 3rd down play will likely come after the 2 minute warning.

Why do so many coaches fail at clock management?

Kickers are tender and emotional. Good coaching protects them.

So have your quarterback go down to one knee. I was actually hoping the Ravens would run it back for a touchdown because I was so pissed.

I just shook my head! When they let Cassel throw it was nothing but fail

WilliamTheIrish 10-07-2012 03:45 PM

Hermi-O said it was "too risky".

Too risky to take a chance on a 60 yard FG in perfect weather? Worried that Ed Reed was going to return it for a TD? Why? Hermi-O wasn't trying to win anyway.

a coach who is excited about losing...
