Topic: I still can't understand it. On the 1-yardline, 3 downs left, 1 timeout left. Pass the ball?

I wouldn't agree with it but I could kind of understand a pass to the far corner of the endzone where a DB couldn't have a chance of intercepting it. But a slant pass into heavy traffic? And the pass was zipped in there where it could have been tipped and intercepted.

How the fuck did the Seattle coaches think that was a good idea? How do you not use your bruising running back who was breaking tackles all game?

I didn't watch the game but even with my limited football knowledge it doesn't make sense. Maybe if it was the 3rd down and your running plays weren't working.

It was an offensive coach trying to be too cute, going against the conventional wisdom of ramming it down the middle and splitting them in half like they did all game ,he would have been a hero if it succeeded. He was in line for a head coaching job, now he couldn't get the Jackonville Jaguars to return his call.

not only that, but wilson's prior 4 or 5 throws were ALL into traffic and begging to be intercepted, even the one that Kearse made the big catch on.

so you have wilson throwing like shit, which any pop warner coach would have noticed.

not only that, but you have lynch cruising over them at will.

so you have lynch running like a beast, which any pop warner coach would have noticed.

then you have pete carroll, who at one point too-clevered himself out of an NCAA title against Texas, fucking it up again in the moment of truth

GO PETE CARROLL!  THE FUN TIMES COACH!  YIPPEEEEEE!

Clickbait stretching one tweet into an "article".

Here is the tweet:

An incomplete pass stops the game clock. An unsuccessful run does not. A timeout also stops the clock, and Seattle only had one timeout left. So if the Seahawks had run on second down and failed to get a touchdown, they would have had to call timeout.


Now, it's third down, and they have no timeouts left. So if they run on third and fail, the game is over. But if they pass on third and fail, the clock will stop, and they can run another play. So they basically have to pass on third, and the New England defense knows they have to pass.

By contrast, if you throw on second down and fail, the clock stops. Now it's third down, and you still have your time out. That means you could run on third, fail, and use the timeout to stop the clock and run another play on fourth down. That means New England has to defend against both the pass and the run, which puts Seattle in a more advantageous strategic position than they would be had they run and failed.
