What about it???
Did Riverboat Ron Rivera make the right call this afternoon?
Should the Carolina Panthers have gone for Two, or should the Panthers have kicked the Extra Point and looked toward OT?
What about the coach’s call? The Carolina Panthers go for two and skip the Extra Point kick attempt that would have tied the game and pretty guaranteed the football game vs. the Detroit Lions, at Detroit, would have gone into Overtime…
Did Ron Rivera make the right call going for two?? Cam Newton had a receiver wide open and he missed the receiver by a mile and a-half, and if you stop and think about it for a second, Newton was standing back there with all day long to throw that pass and with all of that time for Newton standing back there in the pocket, why didn’t Cam Newton take off and run the ball??? He probably could have dove into the end zone for the Two-Point conversion….
But, when you really look this last Panthers’ chance over, this is one of those times when Riverboat Ron, should have held his hand, and had Graham Gano attempt/kick the Extra Point….
Easier said and done in hindsight, and we are not doing our “Sunday Night Quarterback Thing”, but as soon as this play came up and there was a question about what the Panthers should do, my first inclination was, Kick the Extra Point and try and send the football game into OT…With the time remaining on the clock, after the Panthers failed on the Two-Point attempt, the game was over…
If the Panthers kicked the Extra Point, and they made it, the game goes into the extra frame….
Final answer/Final conclusion/Final Thought on this Sunday Night Opinion Poll:
KICK THE EXTRA POINT and go for Overtime……..
