  • Could you clarify for me?

    Does he mean that it was scripted and that it was always going to happen, or does he mean that he called it, but didn't want Robinson to run as long as he did?

    It was a scripted play in the game plan based on what they saw on film. The situation matched so they went with it. Pete didn't think about how it would come across, he was just trying to get the first down. After they ran it he realized how it looked and therefore he's taking the heat for not calling the play off.

    Pretty damned classy of Pete taking the bullit for the team on this instance, that way, the players can feel good about executing the play to perfection.
    Pete knows all about how the fake punts / fieldgoals can work, for or against you.
    Some will probably be pissed because the Bills didn't think of doing it first.
    Screw the laying down on games, it sucks when you don't win, the Seahawks know all too well about letting your opponent back in the game.

  • Yes. Mike Rob also just told Jen Mueller it was planned for and they (the Bills) finally showed the look, so off the Hawks went. He also mentioned he liked that it's out there and now teams have to plan for it.

    This right here. Punt coverage will be much better because the 49ers will be thinking about thast fake punt.

    Plays in the current game effect play in subsequent games. Good call by the punt team.
