The run, run, Ben rollout, punt series at the end was NOT playing to win. That was Martyball at it's finest especially with the way Ben, Miller, and Ward were dominating in the 2nd half.

Watch the Patriots this weekend....they play to win. There will be no run, run, run, punt if they're only up 1 at the end.
I completely agree with everything you just posted

A "famous" coach once said that almost every play could turn into a touchdown with the proper execution against an accomodating team! Armchair quarterbacking is what it's all about when you're a fan.

My problem with Tomlin is not going for the extra point, but instead running the ball when he should have stuck with the short passes which were working...............

I hear people say this but I don't get it. I do not coach football and never have coached it, yet if I got to coach a game I would not opt to play turtle like that at the end.
I would go down with my guns firing.

So, how do you establish strategies I guess is what I'm trying to say. Shouldn't it be in your nature to go for the kill?

Note: I'm not saying go for the home run ball...I'm saying go with your best weapons (Ben, Miller, Ward at that point in the game) to try and get a couple of first downs to end the game. I'd rather lose by firing all my bullets.

I have to agree with you.....He got too conservative...lost his nerve and thus lost the game.
I don't see any passion in him either. I don't see satisfaction on a good play....I don't see rejoice when we get a touchdown....and I don't see him pissed when it gets f'd up. I don't see anything from him at all!

our best weapons (ben,heath,ward) to become very dangerous and end the game quickly needs a better offensive line so tomlin must draft a good o-tackle.

It has to be Tomlin's fault. Willie was injured. Of course, I guess that still makes it Willie's fault. ROFL

Did you all see what happened on the last play of the game? Ben got sacked and fumbled the ball. THAT is exactly what they were afraid was going to happen on that third and six. That is why they got conservative. I hate the fact they didn't try to pass but Ben has gotten sacked so many times on third down this year it was ridiculous. I just don't understand why they don't roll him out on third down to get away from that pressure a little bit. Oh well, I am not a coach. What the heck do I know?

When you call a planned run on a third and long with a slow quarterback, you're going to take some heat. Especially if you just happen to have the best third down receiver in the business and one of the better young tight ends in football on your roster.

It was a dumb call and Tomlin needs to say so.
