    We needed the field goal anyway, sure you could go for it but you would still need to get into the end zone and we had no timeouts, kicking there was the right play.

    I get it, your deep in your own territory, but the only chance you have is to go for it and get 6 fricking yards.
    He played in his fears! You have to go for it there.
    And when we didn't make it, what would you be saying about the HC?

    Instead of thinking of a play fir the now 4th and 1
    Did you happen to think maybe Tomlin was working the refs in order to give Canada more time to consider a 4th down play? Nah, that would be giving the HC too much credit.

    Imagine if Tomlin called a fake punt deep in his own half of the field?! We have the element of surprise and the Browns would not be ready for it! Make it a jump ball pass to Pickens! That is if the Browns covering him and aren't caught off guard. Reach down and show the world you have a pair! And throw it to the right person. It would be a bigger shock than Watson...well almost!

    But with 4:26 and the position of the field I'd call a punt and tell Turbisky to throw it deep if we hold them and get the ball back. If he turtles it, that's it. Bench him.

    The offense needs a RB capable of hitting big plays in the rushing and passing department, and two new starting OL. The run D needs at DT/NT and new ILB to stop the run. Better play calling / coaching is badly needed. Time to put them all on the shopping list for the next draft / offseason because they are not changing this year. That much I'm fairly confident of.

    I disagreed with another punt from the Browns 41 on 4th and 1, but not this one, not after the way the Browns collapsed down the stretch of their first two games.

    you’re likely going to have try a 4th down conversion in the possible Comeback attempt.

    you’re not getting an easier 4th down/distance then that

    That doesn't matter, the point is to keep the game alive. You still need the points, you could convert that first down and still have to settle for 3 and then you would be in the same spot with less time. If the ball was on the goal line I agree with going for the TD but not not potentially ending the game for a first down with points you need anyway staring you in the face.
