    Fuzzy Math(2 pt conversion)


    Are you kidding me?
    I spent nearly half the game wondering if passing up a chance at 2 pts was going to cost us the win.
    Please...someone explain the math to me because I'm not as smart as Chilly.
    HOW CAN YOU NOT GO FOR TWO?
    Wait...I get it...Chill was counting on another safety out of the defense to give us the 11-10 win.


    Bottom line is the offense is FUGLY.
    Eight/Nine in the box and we can't hit a hot route to give AP a little room out there.
    When anyone can show me the improvement the offense has shown because Gus is in and Action Jackson is out please drop me a note.
    Gus stands in there and gets pounded except for a couple times a game where he throws out of fear and the zebras bail him out with a PI call downfield. I don't want to hear about Berrian's crossing route that turned into a big TD either....my mother could have hit him 5 yds past the line of scrimmage for the same result.
    Anyone else happen to notice how many balls were underthrown/overshot or into the turf today?
    Gus has to go.
    He doesn't have to go far.
    Just over to the bench where he looks best wearing that headset.
    We aren't going to win a playoff game with this band-aid in under center.
    Put T-Jax back in.
    He isn't the Messiah but he gives us something that Gus can't.
    HOPE.
    This team would be 3-3 without the QB change and TJ would have had 4 more games of experience to draw from.
    BC was trigger happy because he was scared of losing his job.
    I've got a news flash for you Vikings fans...Childress is gone if we don't win at least 1 game in the playoffs and that isn't going to happen with run-run-pray Gus can hit a 4 yd slant every 3rd down so why doesn't Chill GROW SOME and ride his horse till the end.
    At least at the end of the day we would know if TJax is for real.
    Please don't post any BS that Gus gives us a better chance to win either because anyone who thinks we are bringing home the Lombardi with that old man under center is kidding themselves.

    Put Jax in.
    Play it out.
    Let it ride.
    If the best we do with Gus is 8-8 at the end of the day, I'd rather give the kid the reigns and see if we can get some first downs.
    Lets face it....this sh*$ we saw today....doesn't inspire people.
    I'm not going to get a hard on watching our kicker get game balls the rest of the year, are you?

    The formula is quite simple;

    Not that bad of a decision.....if we had gone for two and not got it, it would have been 10-8....meaning, if the Lions scored again (+7), it would have been 17-8, a nine-point differential, and thus, a two-possession game. And if that had happened, I think we all know we'd have been killing BC for not going two until he had two (as basic strategy dictates) and putting us in the hole by 9 potentially on a day when our offense, well, sucked.

    Re: Fuzzy Math(2 pt conversion)

    Excellent post and welcome!!

    Im on the whatever bandwagon for QBs I guess

    I like what I saw and I didnt at the same time today

    IDK how Jackson would do but if he happened to come in I wouldn't mind

    And welcome to the boards

    Couldn't watch the game but from what I understand there is no excuse for that kind of stupidity. Leaving your team down by a point, because your coach failed to do the grade school math is what some would call challenged hillbilly loverd.

    LOL.
    Gus throws for 296 and AP runs for 111.
    These guys are doing their damndest despite the madness.
    The three forced fumbles and INT is what mucked up an otherwise okay (not great or stellar or neat) afternoon for the O...except the line which can't fight its way out of a paper bag.
    Gus got tagged repeatedly and Jax would have peed himself and went home by then.

    Let's get back to reality.
    We won 2 in a row.
    We have problems all related back to the same few problems.

    Guess what is usually responsible for terrible execution, penalties and poorly played schemes (which they themselves may be poor)?

    There was plenty of time left in the game IMHO.

    Agreed

    But it just didn't make sense

    If we didn't get it we are still down by 2 and need a FG

    I just don't see why you wouldn't go for the tie regardless of the time on the clock

    Question I am not sure of. Obviously Berrians 80 yard scamper pads that 296 yards passing, but in the case of those two pass interference calls, are those yards part of Gus' 296 passing yards stats?

    If so, it goes to show you how stats don't tell the whole story. Those to passes appeared to me, two passes that wouldn't have been caught.
