The Dumbest Defensive Play Call Ever




Third and 4 at the 20, less than a minute to play, and we dial up an all out blitz?  Are you kidding me?  What do we expect to accomplish?  A sack pushes them back to what, the 25, 27, at best the 30?  The best we can possibly accomplish is leaving them in fairly comfortable field goal range, especially at Mile High -- in other words, not much better for us than just stopping them in a conventional defense.  So we dial up a high risk, low reward defense, and what happens? The worst cast scenario --  Tebow gets past the edge, nobody is at the second level to contain, TD Broncos.  If we just play straight up defense, is Tebow gonna use his arm to score?  Maybe they get a first down on the ground, but with the clock running, Denver with only one Timeout, and Tebow incapable of making a big time throw in tight redzone quarters, all we have to do is contain.  Stop the running game from gaining 20 yards in less than a minute, don't let Tebow beat you on a pass, they tie the game, we go to overtime.  That's where this was headed.  We had contained them all freakin' night, had only to stop them from running 20 yards in under a minute, and we dial up the one defense which risks a TD?  Rex called Sanchez' Timeout call last week the Dumbest Play Ever.   Well, this one's on Rex and Pettine.  That's one dumbass defensive play call -- little to gain, lots to lose --  The Dumbest Defensive Play Call Ever.
