I'm talking about what is more likely to happen on the field when those two plays are called. Are you more shocked by a 3rd and 7 not being converted or more shocked when a 70 yard hail mary (when that's all the defense should be focused on) IS converted?
I'd rather put my money on one of if not the greatest QBs passing for 7 yards to end the game rather than relying on a DB who has shown he isn't that good.
So different argument maybe. Depends on who called the run play with our 3-4 string RB to "play not to lose".
