This. I understand the rationale behind running on 3rd and 7. I can't for the life of me understand why you kneel on the ball with 32 seconds and 2 timeouts left. How do you know your offense is even going to get another chance? In nearly identical circumstances (31 seconds left, 2 timeouts), Ryan got Atlanta in position for the game-winning field goal. How can you not give Manning a chance in that scenario? I don't even view that as a "conservative" call because you don't even know if your offense will ever get the ball again. That's just stupid, not conservative. Did Fox address this after the game?
