And he needs to keep looking for an upgrade this coming offseason.
We've been hurt badly at special teams for many years....most of us agree on that.
As for his game and clock management......he could improve on that......hopefully his film breakdown includes a look at coaching decisions.

The time out was the right call for a reason no one has even considered. Our secondary had been playing extremely well all night and nearly had more than one interception. The idea was to lure Flacco into throwing the ball on that 3rd down and having a very good chance of an interception. Either way, we have the most possible time left if not for a stupid penalty. We had a better chance of a turnover or stop on 3rd down that way than letting them run it and possibly getting a 1st down.

Very good chance of an interception?
We have a very good defense, but interceptors they are not.
We are next to last in INT's this year with 5. To think we were luring Flacco into an INT is ludicrous in that situation. The odds are 10-1 or better that a completion for a 1st down was more likely than an INT.
If that was Tomlin's grand plan (which I doubt it was), I'd be worried about our coach.
On 3rd and 7, I'd have loved to have seen them try to run for the 1st when Rice had 40 yards on 20 carries.

If you read the posted article, it even states that the sack Flacco took was likely deliberate for this very reason.
You're not understanding here. With 2:04 we gave them the chance to throw or run on either play instead of knowing what was likely coming. No way Flacco takes a sack like he did if the play started at 2:04. He either takes a shot or throws it away. A sack wouldn't have been in the gameplan.

It is obvious that Tomlin is an incompetent in managing game clocks. It is a simple arithmetic…stupid.
Calling a timeout with 2 minutes and 4 seconds left, is flat out retarded act. If this call was made in the previous play or within the 2 minutes, he could have saved 40 seconds. This guys is paid millions of $$$ and yet proved that he does not even understand simple math like this. he needs to go back to college, I mean grade school
please dont confuse me with this guy

No, I get it, but it doesn't matter anyway. Flacco was going to pass no matter what because it didn't matter. That's why when we ran that 3rd down two different times, on both sides of the 2 minute warning, he went for the pass both times. They had a 3rd and 2 and still went for the pass. It barely mattered at that point.
