birds_till_death Posted October 26, 2008 Share Posted October 26, 2008 Although it can probably be traced back further, this is in my opinion where the f****ups started happening.1. Finneran drops a TD pass which hits him perfectly in the hands. As a result, we end up burning a time out to make sure we get the playcall we want on 4th down.2. Coach Smith burns our last time out before the two minute warning after 10-15 seconds roll off while he is waiting to see the spot of the ball. hindsight is 20-20, but he should have let the clock run down to the two minute warning, that way we still have one time out going into the two minute offense.3. Jennings, who let almost every single punt fall in front of him all game decides to get that close and then change his mind at the last minute. Although it was a piss-poor call, a different bounce would have easily bounced off jennings. He never should have been that close to it coming to the ground without being able to catch it. A better played punt would have eliminated the possibilty of that call being made.In conclusion, had finneran caught the td pass, even if the same series of events had played out, we would have still had one time out remaining to challenge the play.
