I know Gruden didn't just go for it up by three with 7 minutes left in the 4th qtr?!

you either kick the field goal or punt; you don't go for it with Garcia.

And people are actually calling me a whacko for calling for the man to be fired!!!!!!!!???????????

It serves him right for the Raiders to score the TD. 

Of course we will NOT see the hurry up offense, and probably will see more scrambles and sacks by Garcia to end the game and any chance at the playoffs.

But I thought Grudens biggest problem was he plays it too safe.

I wouldn't have put Bryant out there the way his long range kicking has been. As **CENSORED**ty as Bidwell has been today it woulda been a wasted punt, and you have to remember Higgans has been a beast returning this year, chances are that was the safest call.

It was the right call. The FG was out of range. The punt would have probably brought them out to the 33 anyways, or close to it. You take that chance, I disagree with you.

ABSOLUTELY!!!  If your kicker can't make it, you punt the ball, especially with the playoffs on the line.

Of course in week 2 against the Lions, he would have punted the ball.

BRILLIANT!!

Normally I'd love Gruden to make that call more often: Take a chance, be aggressive, and trust the defense.  It's just that today isn't the day to be trusting the defense.

What a collapse. Game ain't over yet, but we shouldn't even be in this position right now. 9-3 then possibly winless in December. Gruden should be done. Monte has forever tarnished his legacy. The O has actually put up enough points to win 3 of the 4, and if Garcia plays in Atlanta, probably 4 of the 4. Not only has the defense not looked like itself, it looks like one of the worst I have ever seen. Thanks Monte....

If we had a defense this wouldn't be an issue.
