Cover 3 making the rookie throw it into a window, he is not comfortable doing that it seems.

He doesn't seem to be too comfortable doing anything other than tossing it to wide-open backs and receivers on screens. Now that that's been taken away, he's got nothing left.

This post? Yes I agree.


Easy tiger, the quote is from a movie. I wanted to see a FG attempt and a potential 21 pt lead. What's wrong with that?


Being aggressive in that situation is, statistically, the better decision. I liked it as a call even though it didn't work out for us.

In fact I've really liked the Shanahan's tolerance for risk on 4th downs this year. One area where we are on the cutting edge, IMO.

Good hard count by Griffin and hard running by Morris, then Lichtensteiger holds.

+4th down.

I agree and have been happy to see the Skins actually use their brains when it comes to going for it on 4th and not just when conventional "wisdom" tells them they should.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I'm usually a proponent for going for it on 4th and short, but with a chance to create a 21 point lead on a team that hasn't yet scored a TD, you gotta think that a FG (well within Forbath's comfort zone) is the right call. Subsequent events have made this a moot point, thankfully. I was hoping for an edifying response from the first person to respond to my post, I can only presume that it must be hard to post with one's foot in one's mouth.

Crushing them. If the Iggles had decent looking cheerleaders, our guys would take them too. 8)

Mr Paulsen is a nice player, doesn't get enough touches if you ask me. RGIII is smoking them now.
