Have you ever seen a team with 10 or 11 losses in the month of December playing not to LOSE? lol For example I am watching the Titans/Giants game and the Titans decided to punt the ball on 3rd and short. Now wouldn't this be the time for this team to let it all hang out and just play to win the game? So why not go for it on 4th down and see if they can keep the drive alive and maybe get a touchdown? And if they didn;t get the 1st down would it be that big of a deal since the team already has 10 losses? Now I,m not saying go for it on 4th down every possession but if you are a team like the Jags, titans, or raiders don;t you have to go for it atleast once or twice during the game?

Settling for FG's and punting on 3rd and short is something is what teams in the playoff hunt should be doing not a team with a 3-10 record. Agree or Disagree?

I'm thinking depending on team make up, young players, why not go for it, everything is a learning curve for rookies. Of course, the Packers are a different animal but players have lobbied McCarthy before, let us go for it and they get it.

Actually when it comes to a winning team, i don't see a issue with going for it on 4th down on the 1st drive of the game. I mean you are in the redzone and if you don't get it the other team still has to drive 80 yds the other way. Is it weird i rather have no pts and bad field position for the other team lol

Going up 3-0 does nothing for me at all
