  • Fox goes "Full Turtle" on 4th and 1

    Man, we needed 7 points to end the half, not 3.

    This is the playoffs, yet Fox is still going full turtle on 4th and 1.

    Thanks for nuttin', Fox!

    Why don't we wait and see if it matters before we start to bitch about it?

      I've been real critical of their lack of aggressiveness in the past, but I don't have a problem with kicking there. Two score game, and ball back at the start of the 2nd half.

        Wrong. The only problem was calling the damn time out. Better up by 2 possessions heading into the 3rd qtr getting the ball.

          I'd take the points... It was the right call, minus calling the timeout- that was dufus

            No way. Kick that. No shame in taking points and going into the half since we get the ball. You don't have to push it every time.

              Fair enough. A win is a win, I don't care about the margin.

              However, I think it's clear that Fox did *not* grow a pair in the offseason. His mega-conservative ways are just too hard to walk away from.

              John Fox is who we thought he is.

                Absolutely the right call to kick the field goal in that situation.

                2 possession lead with the ball to start the 2nd half?

                    Up 10 in a conference championship?

                    I have a feeling if Denver went for it, did not get it you would have complained he went for it.

                      I don't care if he kicks it or goes for it. But the time out? Seriously, if you're not thinking ahead and knowing what you're going to do in that situation it is shame on you.

                        You do you realize the difference between 7 and 10 points is 1 and 2 possessions?

                          A virtual punch, maybe. I'm just a computer generated stream of words, engineered by some software developer to piss you off.

                            Stupid post and idea, would not read again.

                            Seriously, 1 score vs 2 score lead? You have to take the points there. Certainly would rather have seen less time left on the clock, but absolutely the right decision

                              I kind of thought they should go for it, but getting points to finish the half is huge either way. Here's hoping we can get some decent field position in the 2nd half. Having to go 90 yards every time we get the ball has been brutal.
