    Silly to not take 3 points so early in the game. Gould would have easily made the FG. Only go for it when your down in the 4th quarter late or if a punt would only gain you negligible field position.

    I wouldnt say "only," we went for it on 4th against GB, and it ended up producing an 8 minute scoring drive for us.

    As a teacher once told me "You always go for the points no matter what early in the game. It may help you later on."

    It depends. The Lions are good run stoppers, so I didn't like that call or the run at the end of the game. 49ers kicked a FG from 1-yd. line in first half today.

    Trestman likes going for it on 4th. How many were screaming at him for going for it on 4-1 on their own 30 last week? sometimes it works, sometimes it wont.

    No problem with going for it on 4th

    The odds are good that you can get a single yard, but the Lions are good against the run.

    Normally I kick the field goal, but had we made it I would be calling Trestman the man of Steel because he has iron balls.

    Exactly. It is one of those moves that either make him a genius or an idiot.

    I also don't have an issue with Trestman's willingness to go for it on 4th.
