I honestly don't know why you are so thick headed here. You realize you're the only one that agrees with the run on that 3rd down call on this website? I've yet to see one post that is like "yeah, you run there."
MAYBE if Denver's defense wasn't playing like shit and MAYBE if Joe Flacco hadn't already scored one TD against that very same prevent defense at the end of the first half and MAYBE if you don't have Peyton Manning.
that's a lot of maybes
And maybe if Manning didn't have a history of melting down at crucial points in postseason games, he'd be trusted more. But...
But in that situation, you have to take the most time off the clock as possible.
But hey, according to you, 1:15 is the same as 1:50 so I don't think clock management is your strong suite.
Once again, you can't say somebody is a choker and then insist that they should have the ball in their hands in crucial late game situations. That's a contradiction.
