    Normally, you put the points on the board early in the game. But not always. Which team was winning the "war in the trenches" in this game? Lions. That's why I didn't like either of those calls.

    Okay. What were you thinking BEFORE the 4-1 on the Bears own 30 winning by less than a TD with a few minutes left?

    I think you need to be able to get 2 yards, they know the risks. Sucks when it leaves you hanging. But other eggheads (ie. New England) do it all the time. Can change your game day attitude, in this case... Well you better work on how to get 2 yards.

    You only do that if you have no confidence in your team's defense to get a stop with the game on the line.

    I agreed with Trestman. You get stopped 3rd and close, you try it again.

    So..... you liked it, you didn't like it? Don't hide behind the "no confidence" line.

    It is a simple question.

    One thing to remember..... Mannelly was NOT playing. That likely played into the decision to go for it on 4th down

    Kick the ball. You look at NFL coach decisions over the last 10 years, and 90% don't go for it on 4th-and-1 in that situation. Very late in the game with no confidence in your defense is a different case.

    So, the Bears picked up the first. Went on to win the game because of that gutsy 4th down call.

    Still hated it?

    I have no problem with them going for it there being early in the game to get the mo on your side. Don't forget Detroit tried to go for it on 4th down on the very next possession so it ended up being a wash.
