    Trestman again... BAd to go for it on 4th down again and he had at least some input into hiring Mel Tucker.

    How would that 3 points have changed the game?

    Its not that it could have changed the game, it just shows poor judgement and a lack of understanding of when to go for it on 4th down. Poor decisions are happening too often lately.

    Six point swing and an utter loss of any momentum...

    The defense and it's leader, Tucker. This was a top 5 defense when he took over, now it's a bottom 5 defense. Injuries or not, this is piss poor effort.

    We knew that was coming when we got Trestman. He is a gambler who reads the game and goes for it often. I have no issue with the call to go for it. When you are that close, I would have no issue with ever going for it. Worst case scenario happened. You miss, the other team has to drive the entire field. Sadly they did.

    If the Bears scored the TD, you would be calling him a genius

    I am ok with the play calling. I think the defensive line did the majority of the damage. These run plays should not be getting to the secondary.

    The entire D. &

    Other, but Craig Steltz gets an over inflated ball shoved up his ass for that hold on the Hetser TD

    The Rams defense is not much better than ours, so our offense shouldn't be too proud of their play this week either.

    If going for it on 4th down makes you a gambler then we don't need someone who gambles this often. There are times to go for it and times to either take the the FG or call some crazy trick play. Too often he makes poor judgement calls. I'm hoping that in time he will learn that there is a time to gamble and a time to take the FG. Going for it shows a lack of faith in your defense and your special teams.

    Agree to disagree. I wanted him to go for it. Besides, he has very good reason to not trust the defense. What have they done this game, or all year for that matter to make you trust them at all?

    Play calling wasn't the issue this week, it was execution or lack of execution in our case.

    Now when you put it that way, I could understand going for it as often as he does.

    People bitching about trestman going for it on 4th down instead of taking a whopping 3 points...discount double check.

    An 80 yard drive out of the half to get them within a score after being down 21-7 instead goes for naught and is met with a FG on the other end. I'd say that is the exact definition of shift in momentum.
