A good coach thinks about those things.
We needed a TD to take the lead. If you get the right match up, of course you take your shot. A good coach puts his team in a position to win the game, which means, having more points than the other team. No way can you pass up on a chance to score a TD, just because it leaves more time on the clock than you want.. not in that situation. By that logic,, even if the CB had slipped and O was running completely unguarded into the endzone, you would have not thrown it to him?? Don't be silly.
