Default Onside Kick... Makes sense?

Ok, think about it.

2 minutes left. With the way the offense and defense have been playing today.

Do you want the Defense to be on the field trying not to lose the game (Which they have repeatedly failed at)

Or the Offense on the field trying to win it... ?


Onside kick makes a little more sense when you are thinking of time.

No. Retarded call.

Simply amazing.

Not really. Not with the way our secondary has played today (and most of the season).

But they ended up on the field anyways, with a short field, and gave up the TD.

Yes, and then gave our Offense the chance to win it.

I was willing to take that chance. . . I think that was a very smart call.


And lo and behold...IT WAS

Our defense sucks and would've probably given up the winning points to GB with about 5 seconds on the clock ala the Raiders game. Right call under the circumstances.

That call may have saved our ass. Pretty much every loss this year was due to the defense allowing opposing teams to methodically move down the field & score with no time for our offense. At least this way, it gave our offense a chance.

I totally agreed with the call when it was attempted and I still agree with it wholeheartedly. Our secondary smells like rotten eggs and Tomlin took a risk. Besides - some of you have been B & M all season about Tomlin not taking risks so I don't want to hear your boo-hooing.
