    I wouldn’t say anything, we probably would of lost 30-14 instead, much better chances to get 6 yards in do or die time there. Just my opinion

    also my opinion to maybe kick a fg on the plus side of the two minute warning to preserve clock and still have a fighters chance, I understand nobody does that, I get it, that’s why I’m a school teacher and a high school coach, not in the nfl

    and if he misses the field goal, does that extending the game ?

    there are plenty of fans/coaches/analysts that don’t agree with that theory.

    former nfl executive mike Lombardi being one of them

    You still are missing the point, you are trading points you need for a first down.

    Do we punt if Big Ben was QB? What does that say to MT about what confidence his coach has in him. We are putting our legs up in the air and saying we give up.
    We gave up and didn't want to get beat by 2 touchdowns.
    Maybe Coach Tomlin had the under.

    I get the point.

    my point is youre likely as close to the endzone as you’re going to get.
    gain the damn half a yard and go for the td.

    the FG is the easy part of the equation. You can be 40 yards away and have a hood percentage to make it.

    the chiefs needed 13 seconds without a TO to move 50 or so yards vs. Buffalo last year

    besides that. The pressure the other team now feels because you only need a fg
    they just came off a game they blew 3 days earlier
