    Yes, I actually do when it comes to playoff games. When you get into the playoffs you are playing teams that are in most cases as good, or even better than you are.

    Making the right decisions in the game is critical to whether you are going to advance to the next round. Blow a decision in a regular season game, you still have other games in which you can win to help make the playoffs. Blow a decision in the playoffs and your season is over.

    Yeah, it does come down to players making those plays, but when the coach says "4th down and 11, lets go for it" then that decision is clearly the coaches and NOT the players. There was no reason to not go for the points on the board at that point. It was a bad decision, and it is the kind of decision that Marty has been known to make in the playoffs. That is something he lives with.

    Now, having said that, I would still take Marty as a head coach over Edwards if there was no one else to get to do the job, I am just not convinced of his playoff decision making.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    I guess I just have a hard time buying that a playoff loss is the coachs fault when most of the time the "tough coaching decisions" are presented due to a players lack of execution. Was there not a flat out dropped ball that ended that playoff game last year?? No one says that, they blame it on the coach?? Fair or not, it is usually the coach that gets blamed first. I would happily take Marty because even with first round playoff losses, there were some wins to enjoy. This year...a few records and a couple of good times (first half of the season) but Herm dropped the ball a few times this year. (Oakland game, Colts game)
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    I almost hate to agree with you and Marty, but how in the hell did DJ drop that interception that would have won us the game against the Jets?

    I hope he grows into the force everyone has been talking about, but all I see from him now is speed.

    That is not an all around good line backer.
