    Re: 4th and inches at the goal.....

    I am a wuss and more conservative.

    I would kick the FG.

    With Baltimore's defense, our line, and the stakes ... I would kick it.

    Don't forget ...our defense was stopping them too.... So I would envision that even if we lost the toss, we would get the ball in OT.

    QB sneak...in almost every super-short yardage situation, as long as you don't go backward, the officials will give the offense the spot.

    Altough we have been stopped at the goal line multiple times this year from a yard or less out, (vs Indy, and vs Dallas immediately come to mind) I would go for the TD in that situation. The ball was about 4 inches short of the goal line. Much like Tom Jackson said on ESPN, "if we can't get that much, we don't deserve to win" (the only thing he said I agreed with)

    For the playcall, I go for the win. Part of me says to go for a FB Slam. However, you give up a short distance in the process of the handoff. That being said, I go for the QB sneak. Ben should be able to streatch and reach the ball over the line from that short distance. We only need to break the plane, so this would be a fairly easy call.

    Agreed. All of my friends were yelling GO FOR IT!!! And I was yelliing KICK IT!!!!

    I just think the stakes were too high to go for it in that case. If it were earlier in the game, I would probably go for it. But if we don't make this, it is over.

    Ditto. Guess that makes two wusses. I could easily seeing the Ravens stuffing us for no gain.

    Make it 3.

    And for the record, if Dixon goes in then Ben has to come out.

    Well, the ball did cross the plane so the call was correct. It WAS a TD.

    Now, if the refs let it stand as called on the field, they were going to go for it. Did anyone see that Trai Essex had his helmet on over beside the coach as they were reviewing the play. They were going jumbo with another OT in there. Probably a QB sneak with Ben would have been the best call.
