    Fire him, fire all of his coaches, then burn the desk he sat at. That's what I would do.

    I agree it was a terrible call. But after watching the replay; it was nearly successful.

    After Cedrick Wilson came back around the left side, punter Hunter Niswander whiffed a on a block on the Washington defender that tackled him. I know he's just a punter, but at 6'3, 240 pounds he could have at least made an effort to get in the way. If he had, Wilson not only would have gotten the first down; it's possible he might have scored.

    But getting back to the OP; it was an absolutely horrible call given the score and the field position.

    Yes they were bad calls. I’ve said that like 4 times already. But they had no chance in winning this game after losing their LT and RT in the 1st quarter. Coaches new it and their only chance was Hail Mary type plays.

    I actually didn't hate the call. It was poorly executed and the Redskins were obviously coached up on it. I give the Redskins props. There was a WR wide open for a 1st down but would have been a difficult throw. All decisions made by a coach are piss poor if it doesn't work. If it worked we would be talking about how that was an amazing play call because nobody was expecting it.

    And I am not a McDouble fan. I did not want him. Was it a questionable call? Sure. But it takes balls to try to win with a piss poor team.

    That's what I was thinking. If I was playing Madden and had nothing to lose if I lose the video game, I still don't go for it in that circumstance. But let's say I did go for it, like I hit my head and became mentally impaired, and went for it at my own 20 or 30. then I am not calling a long developing, reverse play to my 5th receiver. That's a play that is slightly better than just taking a knee or spiking it. Just horrible and embarrassing.

    The players had just about kept the patched up team in the game despite the coaching and play calling until that point. Then BOOM. Game over in the blink of an eye.

    i don’t agree man. Even with that missed block Wilson needed like 10 more yards and there was cowboy traffic and 3 other Washington players. Horrible decision there. Atleast throw it on a fake.

    I think people have this reversed. It’s not that Fassel made the call and McCarthy signed off. It doesn’t work like regular offensive play calls work. Mike decided to go for the fake punt (terrible), Fassel picked this one (worse) then Mike signed off (mind blowing).

    I really want to believe the conspiracy theory in the other thread, that he made the call purposefully to blow the game. Because for an NFL coach to make that decision is so beyond bad that it warrants immediate firing, and I don’t say that lightly.

    Of course, this is the Jerry Jones who kept Garrett for nearly a decade so that’s not going to happen.

    This is now this franchise’s version of the infamous thanksgiving butt fumble. This is now our butt fumble, the single worse call in franchise history and meat head McCarthy doubled down on it by saying it was a “ good call”. What a complete idiot.

    This is what's referred as disassociation syndrome. It's kind of like drinking Ur troubles away to full the pain, but without the alcohol and exterior outrage. They have broken Ur spirit!!! :)

    WRONG. The percentages say you punt and play D down by 4 with that much time. That’s some bull you pull with 2 mins left.

    At this point, I'm just upset that McCarthy, Fassel and Zeke are wasting my oxygen by still breathing.

    You just don’t have the ability to see the entirety of what’s going on with the team.
