Schiano's Timeout Hurt

<< < (4/4)

JavaRay:
I liked Gerald McCoy's reaction to the timeout.   He threw a tantrum.   He was like "you moron! don't call a timeout here!".     And Schiano said "huh?  what's wrong with a timeout here?".   And McCoy said "if you don't know, I feel sorry for you."

McCoy ended up being right.

I think he said "Gerald, I need more time to find a secondary"...

Got it, horrible decision to ensure our players were prepared. Yet, it seems there are numerous examples across the league where coaches call timeout.  Didn't the Panthers call timeout against us for the two point conversion?  I think if you go back across the league it is common practice to call a timeout in similiar situations.  You see formations, you surely get more time to think, but I don't see the argument unless the clock is ticking then obviously it's a bonehead decision.

And didn't the Panthers lose that game? So, that timeout did not help them correct?

Boid Fink:
Yup.

S's in game scheming has been questioned before.

Sounds like S is a moron.

Every coach has strong and weak points.

Schiano's weak spot is his on-field calls. Everything else seems a-ok IMO.

So if the other team out executes you or you have a player bite on play-action the timeout didn't work?

Rewatch the game, we were scrambling around lost and had somebody un-covered at the top.

As Schiano said on his show, you don't always call the timeout but sometimes you do.  I think in this case, it was the right call.

Buc on the Move:
Maybe the NFL should do away with TOs since they never work.

BucBalla85:
Yea I wouldnt have called it personally but if they stop the TD from happening they win the game. Were probably saying, nice call Schiano with the time out.
