If Price had still been in the game, I would agree 100%. But here's why I disagree:
- we had the ball easily within Krautman's range, who had hit 16 in a row and was kicking in the friendly confines of the dome.
- Wake would have had 2:00 to work with, no TOs left, in front of a hostile road crowd, with a back-up QB who had been completely unable to move the ball.
If I'm Marrone, I like those odds, and in hind sight, if the kick wasn't blocked, we win the game in regulation.
On the other hand, if Nassib gets picked or sacked, or we get a holding penalty called on a pass play, we surrender the chance to win.
My only gripe with the playcalling in that situation is if you make the decision to play for the FG, why not have Nassib take the 3rd down snap and take a knee right between the hash marks?
Edit: Toga, just saw your previous post, which said essentially what I did.
