    We got lucky for no late hit call on the tackle after that step

    I don't think they blew the whistle and he was standing like he was "in play". Point is it would have been a weak call and really hard to call when the ref didn't blow it dead.

    I don't agree. I think your point is fair but with that much time, you still have a slight chance with a punt. Also, do you really think our offense was going to score twice anyway.

    Most teams that have a better defense than offense make the same decision in that scenario. We are all used to an offense first strategy and a coach that did take offensive risk. That isn't likely to be the norm anymore.

    Also, I'm fine with the let the time run out at half. If they had been on their 30 instead of 50, then you make them punt. Around midfield, you are very unlikely to get good field position and might mess around and give them a cheap touchdown or FG with very little upside.

    If our play calling boils depends on the difference between the likelihood of fumbling on a TB draw and the likelihood of fumbling on a QB drop back, fire everyone now.

    Using that logic, you'd be firing some guy named Belichick too because they have done the same thing many times. And their line is INFINITELY better than ours. And some have even called their QB the greatest of all time.

    Perhaps you should email him that he's doing it wrong.

    Why are so many so ticked off about this. Surrender punt? This is the Surrender Season. It doesn't even count.
