a bigger chance to kick a gimme FG on 1st or second down rather than
on 4th down after 2 fumble-enticing running plays on a cold day? I
have to disagree.
However, if you ARE going to run - run up the middle with Ronnie, not
wide with Ricky. And tell them to get 2 hands on it. Scoring a TD
should not be a priority. Scoring should be a priority and given the
conditions - I would have gladly taken the 3. Or a couple trap plays
and then a 6 or a 3.
