The latest strategy review from our friend William Krasker includes a long discussion of Herman Edwards vs. the clock. Did you ask yourself if the Jets should have taken a delay of game instead of calling timeout? Krasker asked the same question and has an answer. Plus, Tampa Bay goes for it on 4th-and-1 and fails instead of kicking a game-tying field goal in the fourth quarter. You know William favors going for it most of the time (and so do we) but is that even true when the field goal would tie the game late?
The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
