Final Drive of the game...

I was thinking we just needed to run the ball and eat the clock.  We had been moving the ball and not stopping them and Ito was having a good day so this was a no-brainer.  By the second play, I realized that Dawson was hell-bent on displaying his stupidity yet again.  This guy is a moron! 

We snap the ball on the second play after a nice run play with 27 on the play clock.  WTF is that shit?  The next play we throw the damn ball deep to I-can't catch-siah to stop the clock....we run a few more times and actually eat some clock/play clock. All looks well but Dawson can't help himself being unchecked on O by Hopson and calls another deep pass.  Griggs again throws a home-run ball and Staggers uncharacteristically drops the ball, stopping the clock again.

It worked out in the end and I'll give the D credit for bowing up and not giving up anything easy on the last series.

He's an OC. A lot of them are pretty narcissistic about proving their own intelligence.

Re: Final Drive of the game...

The test for me is whether you can predict Dawson in real time. It's easy to look back on specific situations and question him, but if it's all so unpredictable and illogical that it works out by the end of the drive, then I can't really question it.

I understand the concerns with  the calls . However, both could , and maybe should , have been touchdowns . I thought Dawson , Griggs , and the entire offense played well with the exception of one senior wide receiver that should not be playing . Time to start the younger kid who can catch  the ball more consistently .

Can't argue with that.

To me, the prudent gamble would have been to slow the game down rather than continue with the scorefest.  I would have not thrown the ball until they stopped Ito and they weren't doing that.
