Re: Week 10 Game Thread and Discussion
Unless you've got Calvin Johnson, I think fade passes on 3rd and Goal (or 4th and Goal if you have to go for it) are incredibly stupid. Even with a 6'5" freak athlete like Calvin Johnson, that's a play that has about a 20% chance of working. With a regular redzone receiving target (and I know Julio Jones is good) it's even less than 20%.
Yes, I'm totally making up numbers, but the endzone fade is so hit-or-miss it just doesn't make to run it on your last goal to go down.
