View Full Version : I was kind of wondering about taking an intentional safety

I don't know if this was right, but I figured we would then:

a) Be able to punt from a better place than the back of our end zone.
b) Put the defense on the field (at that time, I was still thinking we had a better chance of winning with the D, rather than the O, on the field).

So I wasn't too pissed off at all when we got that safety called against us.

This make any sense?

Yeah, I think it was worth considering.

I was thinking it might be a possiblility, if we didn't gain any ground. The holding call made it all null and void anyway, but I would have probably done it. I would take my chances with our defense against anyone, still would regardless of how much we got torched this game.

thought the catch was phenomenal by holmes...

plus, their offense was warming up - didn't want to give them the ball.

wouldn't have taken the safety, myself.

Oops, I just posted about this. Tomlin said the intentional safety was happening had they not gained any yards.

Yeah, me neither. I've never thought of taking an intentional safety before (I'm not that football-savvy), but it kind of seemed reasonable to me.

Read that Tomlin was thinking the same thing, so that makes me HC material right?! OK then, I'm putting out an "Applicant Wanted" ad ... for OC!
