    makes about as much since as kicking a FG down by 20 to NE. Luckily Seattle gave us a gift after the punt.. we still couldnt close the deal though but it made it interesting

    It was a ridiculous decision.

    You punt the ball because you don't give up easy points and never know what will happen. The odds were against the team at that point no matter what decision was made.

    More people don't care to comment because some understand. It's ridiculous to question ever decision.

    The decision that was made to punt worked out for the team. The defense was unable to make a play to give the team a chance at the end.

    The punt didn't bother me. 3 timeouts, and they were not close to scoring position. it was also 4th and 10. low odds of success and if it fails the hawks would ice the game. I was more upset at the failure to keep the drive going.

    9 out of 10 NFL coaches punt in that situation. Only the true NFL geniuses on this reactionary Steelers board know how to really make the hindsight calls.

    Didn’t we have 3 time outs?

    Wasn’t it 4th and 10?

    Exactly - We ultimately were in position to win that game and couldn't stop them from converting ... the Punt decision turned out to be a good choice.
