This article makes an interesting case....

Quote:
Leading by a point, the MIA defense was on its heals as BUF drove into FG range with less than 3 minutes to play. With all 3 timeouts, MIA must have been feeling pretty good about its chances of getting the ball back with some time to retake the lead.

BUF ran the ball, forcing MIA to use its timeouts. With one timeout remaining and 2:37 to play, BUF faced a 3rd and 4 at the MIA 28. BUF ran the ball for a 10-yard gain, earning a fresh set of downs and forcing MIA to use its last timeout.

At this point, MIA would have preferred to allow BUF to score a TD. The odds favored scoring a TD of their own in response. Accordingly, BUF should have preferred to take a knee rather than score then.


See the link for the chart and the rest but its interesting. I think the Buffalo talk needs to end and we need to focus time and energy on beating New England, but its worth a discussion I think.

I appreciate your enthusiasm and thanks for posting the article.

Do you think that people on a fan board concentrating on the patsies is really going to help the Phins win the next game?

We were at mid field with enough time to run 4 plays, down by 2 with a guy who can boot it 50 yards..

Offense laid an egg
