Thread: What was Tomlin thinking?!?!

    Just as a point of reference, for the year 2012, NFL kickers overall are 67 of 72 for kicks from 30-39 yards. That is a rate of 93%. The field was not sloppy. It was raining but the footing was pretty firm. The probability was extremely high that Suisham would make that kick. The outrage over not kicking on 3rd down is misplaced.

    No it's not because you didn't take into consideration a possible mis-snap because of the wet weather or the holder dropping the ball and/or bobbling the ball.

    Add in the fact that he took a chance on a stupid run play that accomplished nothing then it's even more idiotic.

    I took it into consideration. It didn't happen, so the consideration that Tomlin gave it was correct since the kick went through.

    Just like most plays in the NFL:

    When it works and you win, you're right...

    When it fails and you lose, you're an idiot...

    This is what it boils down to for some fans.

    See the Bills / Cardinals game?

    See the kick on 2nd down? Hmmmm..... I wonder why they did that?

    Oh yeah... because it's a smart backup plan to kick 1 down early.... Tomlin is still trying to figure some of these things out.
