Worst HC Play call in a BIG GAME you ever saw-Football only

Big Blue '56 : 7/1/2019 10:01 am
Try to limit it to the one, if possible. The absolute worst, iyo.

Please EXCLUDE anything to do with officials’ calls or non-calls. This is only about coaching calls..

For me, not running Marshawn Lynch from the 1 in the SB. We all know what happened.

And go.

P.S. I re-posted this as Greg in LI asked if it was football only. It is.

Btw? I had to wait 6 minutes or more to re-post this due to some stupid time constraint.

I've thought about the Seahawks play a lot

To be honest, calling a pass play was not the worst idea in that situation. I think their plan was to pass on 2nd down, if it didn't work, then run on 3rd and 4th down (using their lone timeout remaining after 3rd down). The problem is they should not have called that particular pass play. Should have been Play-Action, roll Wilson to the right, of there's a guy wide open he throws it to him, if not then just throw the ball away and run the ball with Lynch. The problem is they called a pass play that allowed Wilson no time to make a judgement call. Butler made the right read and broke on the ball, but you shouldn't even allow the Pats to have any type of chance to do that in that situation. Call a pass play that gives your QB a chance to throw the ball away if need be.
Not sure if it's been mentioned...

But '02 playoff game vs. 49ers when Fassel decided not going for it on 4th & 1 with us up 38 33 with 3 or 4 minutes & change left. I remember screaming at the TV for us to go for it. But instead we went for a FG & we all know what happened...
That pats defense was beyond gassed

and everyone knew it. They weren't stopping Lynch had he got the call.

When your opponent is gassed, hit him in the mouth.

Playing for OT against the cowboys in 1993 Indefensible.

For picking Jeff Hostetler over Phil Simms in 1991...then hiring Rod Rust as DC in 1992

Worst call ever HAS to be Super Bowl folks...

If they run Lynch and he's actually stopped there, you'd have criticism that the play was too obvious to succeed... I think it was a terrible play call, but not worse than the sins committed by Atlanta.
Its not always about outsmarting your opponent

Seahawks had a clear physical advantage in tjat situation, you take it.
You guys ever think in the '90 MNF battle

between NYG and SF, that Parcells should have kicked a FG at the end making it 7-6 Niners, instead of going for it on fourth where Lott and Simms butted heads?

I was concerned with points at such a premium that it was possible for one more drive and another FG to win it. That's exactly how the rematch was won in January.

But you have a TO and 2 more plays. And while you have to pass on 3rd most likely for clock, you can go either way on 4th again

But if you F up on 2nd, calling among the riskiest bang-bang plays - not a fade, but as close to the OL as you can get on 'hot read' type throw? On the last play of the biggest game? We saw, you lose right there. And there was no need to be THAT aggressive, even if it worked. That's ignoring ML was probably your best bet to get 1-2 yds in the first place, not just this game but likely his entire Seahawk career
Not really a big game but a game that I think put the final nail

in jim Fassels coffin. In 2003 against the Cowboys the Giants left 14 seconds on the clock or something like that instead of running down the clock and kicking the FG. The following kickoff went out of bounds and the Cowboys wound up winning the game. Fassel said he didnt run down the clock because there could be a botched snap and he wanted time on the clock just in case. All pointing to the SF loss in the playoffs. I think that was the true end of Fassel, coaching scared and second guessing himself. He just couldnt let that play go.
