    Theres no way it could be a "good call."

    We just wouldn't have been mad if it worked.

    Well other than those who have to stay pissed off about something.

    It's a low % play no doubt to try an onside

    But it should have worked, they were not ready for that

    Or were they.......

    I will have to look for the link again, but an analytical report stated that 60% of surprise onside kicks work. So, 6 out of ten times you look smart and 10 out of 10 times we flub those things up. It also said Tye Smith blew his assignment and caused the flub by leaving his lane.

    As ridiculous as this sounds, well it kind of makes the point....

    When I play Madden, I never punt the ball, I ALWAYS go for it on 4th down. I ALWAYS go for the 2 pt conversion. I NEVER go for an onside kick on the first kick-off of the half.
    My point being, as risky as I play a game, with no money or a career on the line, I would never pull such a thoughtless move.

    Even if it had paid off, it still is more risky than the pay-off. It was a stupid move and doesn't suprise me coming from the worst coach to ever coach in the NFL.

    I mean in that kind of situation why would you put your trust in Tye Smith to do what he's supposed to do in a meaningful game?

    Football coaches are the most conservative coaches you'll meet in any sport
