Wouldn't you if you were the opposing coach just to beat the shutout?


No, I'd go for the TD, I don't like that at all.


So you'd go for the TD, with NO time remaining instead of kicking the field goal to at least put points on the board? What sort of logic is that?


I'd rather have a TD on the board than a FG. It's not very good sportsmanship, they were right in the red zone. If this happened to your team, you would not be happy.

But considering the way Gradkowski was playing, I'm pretty sure he didn't trust his QB enough to punch it in the endzone. At least they walked away with some points on the board. I'm sure he would've been happier with a TD but I doubt they'd have gotten it.

If you watched the game, we had our backups in and he marched right down the field. He had 2 throws DROPPED in the end zone. I'm sure he had perfect confidence at that point.
