    4th & 10 at the end



    Since we already know the actual result. In hindsight would it have been better to give Tucker the opportunity to hit a 68 yard game winner than trying the pass play that was broken up.

    He's not hitting a 68 yarder. In those situations the coaches always ask the kicker where he needs to be for an attempt. I'm sure Tucker gave them a number and it wasn't 68

    they didn't even run the ball to get closer they could have used a run play in there somewhere and they didn't even try 4 straight passes..smfh..stupid dumb ass coaches.

    In hindsight there are about a dozen things that could have changed the result of yesterdays game.
    Bottom line Tucker should have had his opportunity Moore Dropped the ball.

    This. Did anyone expect them to convert that after seeing the last 3?

    And also Flacco short armed a pass to Pitta as well.

    The odds were better for trying to get the 1st than letting Tucker try a 68-pointer.

    That's almost a no-win situation.

    That was a terrible pass by Joe on 3rd down.

    I can't blame him for being gun-shy, but any time Joe is fading away and comes up short he's really rattled from the constant pressure.

    As noted on the CBS post game show as well, Steve Smith was 1-1 on the outside on 4th down and Joe didn't see it. Give Joe an average pocket and he will make it rain.

    Trestman has to adjust his game plan a little better to the realities of the play out there and he needs to understand how to keep his QB in rhythm.

    Definitely not a good throw. I dont know what's up with him. He's been doing that lately. Nerves and the crap with the OL is my guess.

    Then, on 4th and 10, he absolutely NAILS Aiken in the chest between 2 defenders. That's an elite throw, but it was a low probability throw. Aiken wasn't going to hang onto that while getting nailed in the chest.

    Re: 4th & 10 at the end

    I watched Tucker in the warm ups and he hit a couple from 65 but they were barely there. Given that the longest kick in NFL history was 64 yards in Denver, there was a much higher probability of them converting the 4th and 10 vs. hitting a 68 yard FG.

    More interesting question to me is what they would have done if Moore had caught that pass or the one made it to Pitta and they had the choice between going for a 4th and 2-3 or attempting a 60-62 yard FG, because that is difficult but makeable range for Tucker.
