I'd like him to not run the ball with time left on the clock and a timeout. Even if we gain 5 yards on a running play instead of losing 2, it's still a 54 yard FG, thats better but still no chip shot by any means.

Yeah, I don't think they'd have gone for a hail mary as an alternative to giving the FG a shot, I'd have expected a running plan to just wind down the clock. I don't think we missed out on anything.
I completely disagree with the OP however. The way Pete handled this drive was absolutely terrible. Just awful. I don't mind the run call. But there wasn't much hurry up at the beginning of the drive. They should have emphasized the essence of time. Pete was being conservative though. Regardless, that drive was detrimental. Pete should have been taking the blame during the post-game conference. Failed to do so
