Harbaugh did the right thing going for the first down. Our defense just played lights out the whole game, they deserved to not have to go back out on the field with 4 minutes left.
Lol are you serious? so cause you think if we went for the FG something would have happened to our defense? Wow...
Now dont get me wrong, I love Jim's smash them to the ground attitude but being up 41-3 with 3-4 mins left, play it safe and save it for Detroit.
Yes that is exactly what he is saying. If you kick a field goal and make it then you have to kickoff again, which could result in an njury. Then your Defense would be on the field again for another 4 minutes with Tampa trying to score. Do you think Tampa would just run the clock out or take a knee? It is much easier to control the tempo of the game while you are on O. Getting the first down and then running the clock was the right call. Unfortunately Morgan got hurt. It was a fluke. Also there are only so many players on the team so you can't sub out everyone of them. Its football it happens.
Not sure what you are lol'ing and wow'ing about here?? Seems like we should be asking you the same question. Are you serious?
