    Martz Made The Right Call...

    in going for the FG with 13 seconds left instead of running one more play. I wanted to shoot the commentators when they were saying that Martz should run one more play and go for the endzone. With no timeouts left all it takes is a bad snap/exchange, a sack, a receiver falling down, etc and we are toast.

    It's good to see Martz have the balls to make the right decision in kicking the field goal after he got roasted for kicking the field goal in a different situation last year against the panthers.

    what do you guys think?

    I agree 100% with you, tanus. Right call completely.

    I agree. But only because we didn't have any timeouts in case of a sack or a completion in-bounds.

    Without a doubt, Martz made the right decision. Anything else would have been foolish. While the announce team was talking about taking another shot, I was thinking about last year's whiner game.

    Martz made the right call.

    I could not believe the Fox commentators. They were so biased in their commentary. I argued with them most the game and had to mute them out again. hehehe... I have the power of the remote.

    True, the win makes the decision right, but I also agree that this was the right call. I was down on Martz in the playoffs last year when he let time run down and kicked the field goal for the tie, but this time it seemed like the right thing to do.

    It's not the power of the remote that would concern me, it's talking to your TV set ...

    As to the call, timing is everything and he didn't have the time or TO to go for the endzone here. And speaking of calls, I'm surprised he didn't try an onside kick after the Curtis TD ... not what I expected. Which leads me to say that Seattle has to take the bone-headed play of the week award ... by opting not to run the clock down with 3 straight runs and rather passing on 1st down with the Rams out of TOs.

    well, they also could have kicked the FG then Seattle run it back on the kickoff. But, it's better to be safe than sorry. It was by far the right decision and a right call.

    Re: Martz Made The Right Call...

    It was absolutely the right call. The only way you run a play there is if you throw it into the endzone. But any mistake - a sack, a muffed snap, a catch on the one yard line - and the game's over.


    Clearly, a FG was the right call.

    Yeah, I had to roll my eyes when they said that. :redface:

    Well I can't resist arguing with these guys and I always win. :redface:

    Don't worry adarian, there are many things that I do that would "concern" you and perhaps I should be concerned, but since it entertains me, I will continue to talk to or yell at the tv. yes sir...it's fun.
