Measuring Andy Reid's balls against Matt LaFluers would be unfair.
It's amazing that coaches still wimp out.
- Analytics isn't an excuse because it's lineball, slightly in favour of going for it
- You have one of the best QBs ever who's still probably a top 2 QB right now and likely MVP
- Your defense isn't terrible but it's not great
- Even if you get the ball back at/around your own 20 is your offensive line going to hold up for an 80 yard drive where the defense knows you're going to be throwing it?
- Finally, if you go for it and don't get it and are scared about the analysis of it, are you really going to get crucified for going for it there? Who is going to stand up and say "actually, with Rodgers at QB and an iffy defense facing Brady and a ton of offensive talent we think FG was the right call"?

He can coach as many 13-3 seasons as he likes, there's no chance of winning a SB if he can't make the right decision there. And even if he (and others like him) have short memories, they only need to go back one week to see what a good coach does with a game on the line even with a backup QB.

These guys are paid millions of dollars to dish up sh*t like this. I have a bet on Tampa to win the SB and I'm still furious with it.

I'll be half-watching the next game while trying to get some work done, so if anyone can post a link or upload LeFleur and Rodgers post-game interviews that would be much appreciated. Should be decent viewing......

It's not so much that it wasn't a penalty its the fact that the same thing happened when Green Bay had possession and they didn't call it. Either call neither or call both. It's not rocket science

A lot easier to see the one of the left as a back judge

I'm laughing at the intelligence of the posters saying 'the flag was there', no sh*t the flag was there, that's not the point. You officiate a game one way for 99% of the game, then suddenly change your track and call it when the games on the line. It's ******* shithouse.

In saying that LaFleur had a bad day calling plays and some of the decisions. Great season that could've been greater.
