That's not what we threw, but it's what I expected us to run coming up to the line given our dismal short yardage running game performance in the two prior goal line situations earlier in the game. (Where we had to resort to the naked boot and the naked boot-TE toss in order to 'punch' it in---both great play calls in that situation, by the way).
It doesn't matter what our average is as long as it's over 1 yard per carry.
We needed one yard with 3 attempts, it's not something that needs to be overanalyzed. If you think they played it well, that's fine. I disagree.[/quote]
And if Garrett had ran it 4 times in a row and got stonewalled 4 times in a row, I am sure you would have disagreed with that as well. It seems that the result is what everyone disagrees with, I don't like the results either but to sit there and say it was a horrible call is just not correct. Given the situation, given the Defense, it was not a bad call. It didn't result in what he, you or I wanted but that doesn't make it a bad call.
