    I wonder if the fact that the Rams are the worst team in the NFL on 3rd and 1 had anything to do with that call? Hopefully THAT gets fixed so we don't have to make desperate stabs in the red zone.

    Oh I'm sure it did. I actually didn't mind the call, but the execution was awful.

    I would have loved the call on 2nd and 1, but 3rd and 1 in the red zone, not so much.

    That's fair.

    You also have to consider the Rams tried to run it on second down the play earlier, and only gained a yard. Had they just tried to run it again as Varg suggested, and held true to their awful 3rd & Short conversion percentage, we'd all be complaining about how unimaginative the call was.

    The fact that the play could have worked with better execution tells me the call itself wasn't awful. Quick had one on one coverage with room down the sideline and a safety that should have been out of the play, were it not for bad placement on the throw and Quick failing to really compete for it.

    Likewise, fair enough.
