Historically bad call from Vrabel

It’s a massive deal... I really don’t know what to tell ya if you think it’s a no biggie to take that risk for what is both a 3 possession game

The chances of getting 1 yard with Henry if they call the right play are probably about the same as making the field goal. That's what I'm saying

It was an unnecessary risk.

Are you even reading what I'm saying? It might not be a bigger risk to go for it than kick the field goal! Vrabel isn't an idiot, I'm sure he's done his research on these things

This is just stubborn coaching. The thing that got Mularkey fired. Vrabel said he would be going on 4th downs when he got hired. Being aggressive is game dependent. Was a stupid call once again, and could have been costly. We didn't put up a single point in the second half. Puzzling calls that are becoming more frequent than not..

Going for it on 4th down is a MUCH bigger risk than kicking a chip shot FG to go up 3 scores. At that point in the game going up 3 scores is basically icing the game. Not to mention getting a TD has the same effect as a FG.

On 3rd/4th and short Derrick Henry is 22 of 32 which is 68%.... Santos is 93% from the range that he would have kicked it

 

 

Tell me again how you want to just nonsensically throw some numbers around? (Pretty much we have 1.5x more likely chance of scoring if we go for the field goal than we do just going for that 1 measily yard for minimal outcome to the gameflow)

 

 

I am critical of the playcall. But I don't think it's this "historically bad" call. 70% chance to completely ice the game might be worth the risk. Vrabel obviously thought so. To be fair, I don't disagree with going for 1 in nearly any situation past the 50 yard line

I don’t think it’s remotely close to a historically bad call but it’s not remotely close to a good call... it’s a completely unjustifiable risk

What a dumb ass.  Serious its ok to say I made a mistake and move on.  There was zero to gain from being up 21 vs 17.  Going up 3 scores you make the other team score 2 touchdowns and 1 field goal instead he allowed the Falcons to being able to tie the game with 2 scores.  Terrible.

I don't understand why teams are not happy with 3 points earned and move on.  Vrabel looked like a loser Madden player who you like to play against
