Not going for it was the wrong call and the 3rd down, designed run, was a bad call too. I would have much rather seen JJ look for a WR and if nothing is open run it.

Heck, since I think going for it on 4th down would have been the right call I would have been just fine with trying let Cadillac run it in on 3rd if not both 3rd and 4th.

I agree it was 50/50.  I think in a lot of cases Raheem would go for it.  He's shown he's not risk averse in previous games, but we've failed on 4th and shorts all season.

Yeah. You can't say it was an awful call I don't think. The problem I had was not being more aggressive prior to that and then when the Bucs did get the ball back they were completely unprepared...coaches, QB, offensive unit. That was attrocious.

It wasn't a real aggressive play but that wasn't an awful call. You kick the FG, make a stop of a bad offense and get the ball back only needing an FG. To me that's not an awful call, it is a 50-50 call.
Completely agree.

I was fine with the FG. But it could go either way.

It was a series of blunders by "THE DREAM".  I don't understand why he refuses to use Cadillac.  Caddy is our BEST PLAYER ON EITHER SIDE OF THE BALL and he elects to put the 4th string fumbling kick returner in the game when it counts.  It must have worked in madden i guess...what a joke!

Yep. I was NOT fine with that play call. Awful. If you're going to run, give it to Caddy. Or take the TO and make sure you have the right play called.

Same here.  50/50.   If they win the game it doesn't matter and people aren't complaining about it.   To put the ball in Peanut's hands however I will say that was a bad move.   Made no sense.   Everyone knows he's not sure handed.   

What's with JoeBucFan talking in the third person?   BuccinTex thinks that's pompous and annoying.

I was watching a college game yesterday and they had 8 trys to punch it in from the one.  Couldn't do it......hilarious.

Heck the redskins were going for it on fourth down in the first quarter and we don't have the balls to do it at the end of the game with the the outcome of the game on the line.

I don't understand how there was even a hesitation to go for it.  We couldn't move the ball, we couldn't make field goals, and we were inconsistent on defense.

We win by either...

- getting 4 yards on a single play

or

- kicking a field goal; recording a quick defensive stop; driving 70+ yards in a minute with few timeouts; kicking another field goal; recording a stop and/or driving the length of the field to a third successful field goal

... and judging by the description of the team I posted above, how is this even a decision?  It was an easy way out for Raheem; it made someone else the scapegoat of the game.

It was a call a coach with no balls would make.   If they take a pass on the field goal and don't make the 4th down, they are still within a TD.   If they make the 4th down, they win the game.   What a loser of a head coach.   This loss was all on him.

Raheem is a terrible coach.
