why call a TO after the sack

But we called the TO and we didn't have time to score. So, this so-called blueprint football didn't work. This is the argument. Do you play textbook football or football in real time aka what's really going on?

this is my last time mentioning this because you guys seem to have trouble understanding time as it relates to a football game.

we got the ball back with 50 seconds and no TOs after stopping the clock...if we don't stop the clock, we get the ball back with around 15 seconds and a TO. which scenario gives you a better chance of scoring?

I'm really amazed at the first page in this thread. I only read that far. 9 out of 10 NFL coaches play the game that way. The other guy is looking for a job. You try to deny your opponent the chance to score on both sides of half time. You leave yourself enough time to score.

You all know that is the right play. The "I don't trust our offense" sentiment is fine for fans. I'm glad our coach isn't thinking that way. Last year all of you would have loved that play because you didn't trust the defense to stop them after half time. The right call is the right call, and Quinn made the right call. There are SO many calls to pick on...this isn't one of them. We are seeing ghosts at this point.

Neither, because apparently your scenario yielded zero points as well. I don't see this ever being agreed upon, so I'll leave it alone. Happy New Year to you and yours. Go Falcons!

In that particular situation, if anyone calls a TO, it's gonna be Carolina because they were the ones with the burden to score, not us. But giving up a 3rd and 21 is indefensible, too. So, the botched time management is par for the course.

  I Think DQ was thinking we hold them to a field goal and save a minute for us to try and drive down and score.  It was like 3rd and 23 so there were pretty good odds for that happening. If you guys recall we just barely missed a chance at a field goal right before the half. I am pretty sure that 3rd and 23 is usually never converted even when playing the Falcons. So not only was it the right call it also showed he had confidence in his team. Both sides.
