Manning's bad playcalling

Postby mtryanks12 » Sun Jan 16, 2005 6:34 pm

With 2 seconds left and 3 yards to go, Manning should have just passed it off for a TD instead of settling for a FG by Vanderjerk. Any comments??

In a 6-0 game on the road? That was the smart play.

Yeah, you can't get on Manning for his playcalling. His play? Yeah, he's sucked.

Huh?

I was answering the question. 2 seconds left in the half in a snowy 6-0 road game. Again I say it was a smart play.

I agree with you. That was the right call.

I was also commenting on the thread title--taking Manning to task for his playcalling (although it's not just him). My argument was that the playcalling has been fine, but the execution has sucked.

you think kicking the FG was dumb?? :-°

I dont think Manning sucked, 26-40 for 220 something is ok, that last INT was obviously a desperation thorw. he obviously wasnt on the money, but there were ALOT of dropped balls by his receivers.

I agreed with the call. The risk of ending up with nothing was too high, considering the way the Pats-D was playing.

Only a complete football nub would think Manning should've gone for it in that situation. I agree 100% with the call. 0% with you. ;-D
