Play calling- not to lose

  • Every time we play not to lose, instead of playing to win...we lose.

    It was apparent the first half (keeping with the run run, pass crap). Not kicking a 50 yard FG...Not going for it on 4th and half a yard...

    Then we got behind, and actually started to open it up again..

    Most importantly- 34 yard line...1st and 10...3 HORRIFIC, HORRIFIC, HORRIFIC play calls. Run a read option- play action like the one we hit Baldwin on earlier...Run a Role out safe play where we get 2-6 yards...FML

  • Completely agree. Way too conservative against a team we are better than. There is ZERO urgency. It's as if PC wants to get to the final drive at 0-0 and then start trying to win it.

  • Why a coach would ever pull his foot off the gas is simply beyond me. You get sixty minutes a week to play the game, so why would you, during any of those minutes, ease up?

    This is why I love watching the Patriots. They go out there and get to work regardless of who or where they're playing. Carroll and Co need to forget about the situation and play their game every minute, every week.

  • I think three straight runs to Lynch get us 6 yards and a legit FG try, I don't know what those plays were at the end but I hated them.

    I also didn't like not going for the FG or the 4th and 1 you have to show some faith in your offense too, the coaches taxed the defense so much that at the end they were ripe for the picking.

  • We need to start coaching like the Patriots and just go for the kill until the clock hits 0. Might send a message to the team, too.

    yea play calling was horrid at best, all game I thought

    when you're in FG range under 2 minutes you NEVER send in a play that can take you OUT of field goal range, high school football 101

    every play should have had the option to dump the ball off, clock or no clock, least that way they have to score 6 to beat you

    something doesn't add up, Hawks struggle early on due to a limited offensive scheme, they finally open it up and improve significantly only to return to the same old song and dance?

    really like to know what the objective was in NOT throwing some deep balls when the run was STUFFED?

    this loss definitely puts the Hawks in a precarious position, only upside is the Vikes lose as well..

    Been saying that for awhile now. The Pats never take their foot off the gas because anything can happen. Why we purposly choose to just tread along makes NO sense to me. We accept not scoring points for field position all the time as well as burn clock rather than marching down to score. The coaching decisions on this team are very suspect.
