No, those weren't his fault, but the fact is that he always completely panicked come playoff time and did stupid, unnecessary shit like challenging an obvious fumble, running onto the field to throw a tantrum because he thought the Jets should have been called for roughing the punter, and randomly playing Grbac over Gannon when the Chiefs had been winning with Gannon. Those are on him. He also ALWAYS became overconservative in the playoffs and loved to settle for the most maddening field goal tries ever (e.g. making Kaeding kick a 47-yarder on 4th-and-11 in the first quarter against the Pats).

In fact, his on-field tantrum in '04 was possibly the worst coaching decision I've ever seen in a playoff game. The Chargers could have won that game simply if Marty kept his mouth shut instead of drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that set up a Jets touchdown. Hell, that was a win even WITH Marty's tantrum if he had nutted up down the stretch instead of running LT over and over again for no gain and leaving the game in the hands of a rookie kicker.

I think it's abundantly clear that if you want to win playoff games, Marty is not the coach for you.
