I would be a little embarrassed if my coach decided to go for it on 4th and 1 so deep in my own team's territory.
Tomlin did the right thing to try and win the game. But it seems to me like one of those win the battle, lose the war type of deals. That seems like the type of move that could suck the confidence out of a unit rather than empower them.
Most accomplishments start with a belief. And Mike Tomlin showed 0 faith. Will that have long term ramifications?
Or on the flip side will guys be motivated by anger? or fear? or something else?
Just curious on your read. I think it will mess with the psyche of a lot of players.
