You are aware that up 8, the other team can also score a TD and a FG right? If we stop the two point conversion, then they could still win on a FG like we just saw.

Rather than give the chiefs two separate paths to extend/win the game, I'd prefer to give them just one.


I don't know. It also changes ho you end up calling offense. Maybe you are aggressive if the game gets tied. Either is possibly defensible. The punt...that wasn't defensible.


a decision to go for 2 would have been less defensible than that punt, and the punt was terrible

but hey it seems like you think we would have been in better shape tied than up by no less than 1 if KC scored a TD

I think we can safely that there's not a single coach in the NFL, probably never was one, that would go for two, up 8 points, 3 minutes and change remaining.


Pete Carroll went for two against NE while up 7.

NFL coaches are very dumb.

I'll admit I was screaming for the 2pt er but in my defense I was preoccupied in my abode and forgot it was 18-10 and not 18-13 after the AB TD and subsequent xtra pt. So my apologies. I fkd up, the single pt was the correct move to make it an 8 pt score.

Thanks for making our point

9 points is better than 8 points (hence why you forfeit the opportunity for a nearly assured 8 for a 50/50 chance at 9)

A 50-50 shot at being up nine is not better than being up 8.

I did see for myself.

This team was one errant pass from losing.

I'd walk away too if I argued that going for two up seven is a sound strategy.

This may be the dumbest thread in history. Dumebr than Tomlin considering whether to make throw a red flag and challenge a decision on the field. Any time you can make it a two score game you do. Period. Zero discussion needed.

I’m with the OP and others that agree the xtra point was the right call at that point in the game. It meant KC would be forced to put two scoring drives together rather than just one.

I’ve been real hard on Tomlin of late but can’t see any reason to fault this call. Made sense to me at the time and still does.

Now the punt,, that was a gutless cowardly call that did nothing but save 16 yards.
