I'm more worried about him switching offenses in week 12, then a play call that if properly executed by players could have worked. You call that play expecting your guys to execute them. Can't blame the coach for putting trust in the QB in critical times. That's my take.
No No No.
In that game situation, that play should never be called under any circumstance. Its so risky that you're almost better off punting on third down!
Hindsight is 20/20. If that play gains 8 yards it would have been just a footnote post game about how creative the call was. To say that "In that situation that play call should never be made" is not true. There are certainly circumstances were that call might have been appropriate. Just not in that situation and executed that poorly.
Horrible call. There is no justification for that call.
The only response I have to that is the same thing I already wrote lol sooooooo.....
It doesnt make your response any more correct. Every fan, and nfl expert in the world watching that play had a collective cheek pucker at the time of that play. The second the motioned Ginn into the backfeild i knew it was going to be a stupid call. No excuse on that one. Even if it went for a lucky touchdown, i would be saying it was a questionable call, and that we were extremely lucky it worked. That play call, in that situation, is about as bad as they get.
Well ya ofcourse "every fan and NFL expert" watching that game had a "collective cheek pucker". It was a BOTCHED play. What botched play in the history of the NFL didn't get that reaction? By the same token what touchdown play has ever been called into question. "boy that screen bubble pass out to that flat that was intercepted for a pick six sure was the right call in that situation" or "That half-back draw for a 20 yard touchdown was not the correct play call in that situation".
