Did Tomlin Fire LeBeau by going for it on that 4th down on our own 20 at the end of ?
... at the end of the game? Not literally of course, but effectively?
I was thinking during the time out, that if he went for it he would be declaring - "I have LESS THAN ZERO confidence in your defense, so I will do my best to not let them on the field, even if it means giving the other team the ball within field goal range in a tie game with almost no time left on the clock".
That is pretty much giving him LeBeau his family jewels back in a brown paper bag, IMO.
