why do a lot of teams aim for the juggernaut on 3rd down

What I fail to understand is why do teams tend to try going deep on 3rd down. I would have thought that the Bill Walsh mantra of marching down the field is even more applicable on 3rd down, where the primary goal ought to be (in most cases) is getting the 1st down.
I'm not just referring to A.Smith's attempt at getting a deep pass completed on a 3rd down at the end of the game, but obviously it applies in that case too.
yea, i see alot of teams do this. Jason Campbell did this earlier today against the saints. I guess it's a surprise thing but everyone does it so it's hardly a surprise.
I think you mean 'jugular.'

But sometimes it might be a case of that's what's open. It's one thing to send 4 receivers deep, but it's another to send one man deep and it turns out he's open.
Coaching or lack of.
