It was a gutsy call, i'll give him that.

yeah, it was definitely gutsy. I'd have to say I disagree with it. But I think it speaks a lot about Tomlin's confidence in his team. I do respect that he went for it, but I would like to have seen a better attempt.

It was dumb, but we overcame it and still won. Which is even more impressive. I know this, I feel like we can run on anyone now...

I agree Tomlin got some big marbles. Bigger marbles than sense sometimes.

Gutsy call, yes, because it was moronic. Even if it worked it was moronic. That's how you go for a loss. At least we now have 2 coordinators capable of overcoming Tomlin's idiocy.

can you imagine the reaction to that play had we lost by a FG!? Ugh. This week would have been unbearable.

Thank goodness!

I have less of an issue with the decision than the execution of that play! If you are going to fake it to the right, shouldn't you block heavy on the right? It was either poorly designed or poorly executed ... and maybe even both.

Hey stop the Tomlin bashing.

I'm sure he has taken full responsibility!! It was on him.

We can sleep soundly knowing that.

I just don't understand why he would feel the need to trick an opponent they have been dominating in the trenches. hand that shit off to redman, they never could stop him when it counted most, and weren't about to anytime soon.
