McD was playing to tie the game

Recommended Posts

Read between the lines and that’s what he said in the press conference.

Why in the fudge are we playing to tie the game!?

There’s only 36 yards to the end zone and you have 30 seconds AND a timeout.

That is on McD.

This is why this organization will be set for failure as long as we have McDermott. Doesn’t matter who the qb is.

Yeah because he knows Allen sucks and they had a zero percent chance to drive down and score a touchdown in that amount of time.

I'll agree here.

I also think they bungled clock management on the final drive as well.

You just figured this out now?? The most conservative coach in the nfl.......staying "humble" mean being nice....does not mean run the board on your opponants if the opportunity ever presented itself.......guy needs more of a lead foot.....his other foot is permanently glued on the brakes!

They definitely had a chance to score there.  I have my issues with Allen, but McDermott turtled up the minute we got to Cleveland's 40.  He did the same thing at the end of the first half.  He has a "play not to lose" mentality, which does not equate to championship football.

Definitely. I have a huge issue with his conservative take his foot off the throttle style of game day coaching. It's not a winning mentality to me.

Mc D is a defensive coach anything outside of playing low scoring games is outside of his comfort zone.

Not sure what about this offense makes you confident that we can cut 36 yards in 30 seconds with just 1 timeout.

But if you cut it to 15, it’s a hell of a lot easier on your kicker.

McDermott, in my mind, is starting to appear to coach more and more like a younger Dick Jauron.

This offense excels when they are up tempo. This last drive they motored down the field and as soon as they pumped the brakes the momentum was lost. 
 

Time to play with pace and not overthink everything.

Possibly.

I'd rather lose on a pick then not tie a game on a 53 yard FG with a kicker who suddenly can't make 50 yard kicks.

The final drive was going well until they reached field goal range (even if it was a 50+ yard kick). They immediately went into conservative, play not to lose mode. That is aaaaaaall on the coach. The whole sequence over the last 2-3 plays was so cringe worthy.

Agree with Vic. Allen got them there. Let him finish the job. Bad strategy there IMO.

Even if he is playing to tie, why stop at a 50 yard FG? Particularly when your kicker has missed 4 in a row from 50+. The conservative play there would actually be to get a hell of a lot closer to kick it.

...And missed one earlier from 34!  This was a moment that could have propelled them to the next level if they march down the field and pull off the win.

I'm paraphrasing, but Hyde basically said on his post game presser, that they all backed the coach and his decision. Then added something like why put your inexperienced QB in that position to make a play if you don't have to?Basically, they didn't trust Allen is what I got from it.
