I agree with your premise that they should have been a little more aggressive there... but I can also see the flip side, which is the QB and the skill players had only one decent drive all day, and after that they were back to stuttering around, making mistakes. They were in FG range, but another "turtle-sack" and they would have been out of range (or in a much more difficult spot, having to kick from farther back, with a lower trajectory, against a decent kick blocking team).

Bottom line, is the coaches had little faith in this high vaunted offense and went with what they felt gave them "the best chance to win"(I can just hear BB using those exact words later today on the radio).


They deserved to lose this game. Winning it would have been nice, but undeserved.
