sometimes you take the risk. Maybe it goes for a TD. I was whining today about the trick play in the first have when Antonio was going to throw and they lost 6 or 7 yards. They were moving the ball at will and it ruined momentum IMO. On the flip side it easily could have been a success and broke the game open. You have to think outside the box in the NFL, 2 of Bens TD passes were for a yard, you would have thought they could have pounded it in but both TE and FB were wide open. I have tried to be less critical because maybe a play sets another one up later in game.
