My wanker

Coach Sparano is my wanker this week. Although there were many things
that bugged me, my biggest "concern" was at the end of the half.
Miami was down 27-0 and driving. You have a 1st down inside the 20,
and the drive bogs down. It gets to 4th down and you make a decision
to kick a field goal??!!!

I say in this situation you go for broke. Its 7 or its nothing. He
went for the 3 and got it.

I also need to remind everyone that when you're down by 10 and there's
little time left, you *need* to get the TD first, so you set yourself
up for a potential game tying FG....once again Miami didn't do that.

I've heard quite a few commentators who say when down by 10 you get the easy score first (FG if you hit 4th down). Granted, you want the 7 as you have less yards to get the second possession. But if you get a quick FG, you save time.

I disagree on the end of half FG. I think you take the points.
