That said, it was
still a head-scratcher.
They had a time out. So they try to run the ball one yard. If they dont make it they consider passing on the next play. I dont see how a pass gets justified given the situation, it might have worked, but it was a dumb call.
And what does this say to Lynch? "we love you and want to pay you big money to stay but we dont trust you to get one yard at crunch time"?
Carroll is a two time loser in the NFL, and he cost them a ring. I would consider firing him. It is not clear to me that going forwards he has the authority and trust of the fans and players to run this team on the field.
