Default 3rd and 2...

OK I know we sucked that entire game but come on. 3rd and 2, your personnel is Moore in the backfield. So you call a 2 yard deep pitch to your slowest of your 3 running back. Who called that crap? Why would you call a pitch making your 2 yards become 4 yards? Also why would you call that play with that personnel? Genius!!!!

I know it sounds like 20-20 hindsight, but I would have rather seen two runs between the tackles. If you don't make it on 3rd down, try it again on 4th down.

I didn't like that call, and I still don't. If you're going to run a toss sweep, at least let a faster back (Mendenhall) run it. You don't run it with Moore. Just a bad, bad decision.

when it started out i thought it was gonna be a HB pass, but i agree bad call, but i think everyone would be saying it was a great play if he got the first down. I also think the call would have been different if ben was in.

It's not the playcall, it's the player as many on here will say. Arians has done an okay job in the PC'ing. Now he has a brainfart.

It doesn't matter though. We lost. Again.

Just a terrible play call. That play put us out of FG range. We were productive up the middle all game...still can't believe it!

I agree that it was a terrible call, but lets be honest, the biggest difference between a bad call and a great one is if it works. But for me I'm with most of you that you run that play with Mendenhall not Moore.

I really think they should've ran it up the middle to try to get Reed in better FG postion. JMO, though.
