You would rather they just lay down and quit?
I doubt that you would ever want the 49ers to do that. You don't know what is going to happen when you call a play. Its easy to judge after the fact.
the game was out of reach already. if it were a 2 score game with a few minutes left, ya... of course you keep fighting..... but 4? c'mon man.
it's a violent sport and you should know what CAN happen. keeping the intensity up is good and all..... but as the team's leader, carroll should weigh risk vs reward in these kid of situations and make the right choice especially considering the hawks are already hurting at WR. 40-14 or 40-21... you still got your a*s kicked, your players still feel like sh*t. you don't need a morale victory at that point, you need a reset. at least let the backups have a chance to play.
