Honestly, I expected you to go for it. Not necessarily because it was an obvious call (you had all 3 timeouts, so some people might trust their defense to come up with a stop)...but considering the amount of offense in the game, I figured you might go for it.
Really, it probably would have worked out for you had I not converted that one 3rd down throw to Jared Cook on the curl route where he jumped up and caught the ball before instantly getting tackled. I think that was like a 3rd and 7, and that conversion allowed me to drain the rest of the clock. Otherwise, I would have had to punt it back to you with like a minute left on the clock.
It also helps if people remember things correctly when pleading their case to the league. Painting an inaccurate picture of what happened doesn't help anybody.
I misspoke of course. I just didnt want to piss anyone off. It had been an offensive struggle and I did have a few gems on defense so I thought with 3 mins I'm ok...3 timeouts plus if I don't get the first you are already at most just yards away from field goal range. In retrospect I should have gone for it to try and get it but again just wanted to clarify.
Thanks for your side of it and the way you saw it.
