Also Carroll is a hypocritical a** -- he's up 3 scores with a minute left and he went for it on 4-1 instead of kicking a field goal and to top it off he called for a shot to the endzone and almost scored. Talk about a "what's your deal!?" moment, but I guess Carroll hasn't crushed an opponent like this since his USC days so he had to do it. I just think it's funny that he did it but he better not throw a fit next time he gets blown out.
Actually kicking the fg is considered running up the score. The right call under proper coaching etiquette is to go for it.
Yea go for it to convert but not a shot to endzone or it's completely pointless if you're actually thinking about how many points your adding to the scoreboard. I think the field goal makes more sense and wouldn't be disrespectful, their d stopped you so show them some respect, kick a field goal and give em the ball with 30 seconds left.
This season is a systemic failure by the Eagles, from top to bottom, this was a complete screw up. I wouldn't have a problem if Reid got a mulligan because they brought in tons of new/high profile talent so not doing so hot right away is forgivable but talking up a superbowl or bust attitude and failing this miserably shows that Reid has lost it and probably should be fired. The Andy Reid era Eagles are the NFL version of the Utah Jazz, always good but never good enough and after so long you have to do something drastic to turn it around. The Jazz's case was Jerry Sloan "resigning" and Reid should pack up his office as well.
Also I just looked up to see Deion talking smack on Desean, anyone who wants Jackson on this team is a complete moron. He was jogging most of his routes and showing almost zero effort for most of the night. He only cares about money and would be completely detrimental to the "blue collar" work ethic JH has given this team.
