I'm not saying it was a bad decision but why not grind out the clock more and still come away with points? I have a lot more trust in our offense when they're in the red zone. Alex is what...now 32 TDs and 1 INT in the redzone for his career? He's thrown 0 red zone INTs since 2005. I just feel like if you're QB is that "money" in the RZ...let him do his thing down there. Now if we are on the 40 or 50 or whatever...fine.
I don't know. There is still no excuse for the secondary biting as much as they did.
You don't start running the clock out with 11 minutes left. Especially if you're running the ball for 2 - 2.5 yards per carry. Little upside, heavy downside.
Point taken. I still trust our team in the red zone. I just think it would have been win-win. You get a little time off the clock PLUS 3 or 7 points. The way Alex was playing yesterday in DAL territory...I'd say go for it.
But I DO agree that I don't think it "cost us" the game. Secondary cost us the game. No excuse for getting beat by reality show stars and QBs with broken ribs, etc.
