    Was there a delay in him calling for the FG? That's really the only thing he could directly control.

    Look I get it. But I have seen teams lose games like this, where the field goal wins it, because of interceptions and fumbles. It hurts even more than that missed field goal did. If we get the snap off in time it was a win right there.

    Still have no idea how the players couldn't get into position faster though. The decision to kick came right away so the players should have hustled out there and got in position to snap it in time.

    Why was it spite of him? Like someone said above, he had one or 2 stupid play calls, but why is this win not because of him?

    This is a ton of supposition. Under no circumstances does kicking a 41 yarder make sense on second down.

    41 yard FGs are made 85% of the time so a 15% fail rate. Just 4 yards cuts that fail rate in half. 8 yards quarters it.

    Also, if the intent was to reposition the ball, you don't run towards an uncovered defender on the prior play. You stack in that direction and minimize the risk.

    Nothing you are stating here makes any sense statistically or within the flow of the game.

    And if my aunt had a package, she'd be my uncle.

    Halftime is NOT the game, and the Hags lost. That's literally ALL that matters.

    You haven't seen it 15 times out of 100 times.

    If the intent was to kick the FG regardless of down, he would have done it 5 yards closer on 1st down.

    It wasn't. He panicked.

    It's one thing to say that it is in spite of some bad or iffy decisions, but he also had a lot to do with this win as well.

    Kliff still has a ton of room for growth
    Hopefully fifteen years from now we will look back on these days and laugh

    So when we missed the FG on second down, is that a sign that it was a poor decision because it didn't work?


    You seem to be conflating end results with everything in between. The saying of a broken clock being right twice a day absolutely applies here.

    You should send him, Keim and Bidwill sternly worded Tweets.

    I am messing with you Chris. But overlooking the good to focus and obsess on the bad .... I personally would rather not.

    Yes, the team and the coaches made mistakes. So did Seattle. Their fans are really pissed if you go to their boards. I am enjoying being in our position thoroughly. I really did not care about anything that went wrong when the last kick slithered through.
