Is it me or has time management from coaches been getting more horrendous as every year goes on? Here are a few simple gripes:
1) Why in the world are you taking a timeout on 3rd and 15 to avoid a delay of game penalty? Chances are that you're not going to get a 1st down, so what are you doing wasting a possibly extremely important timeout? Just take the delay of game. You're going to get booed either way.
2) When a team is down by 2 scores, let's say 10 points, and they have 30 seconds left at the 25 yard line, why are you not kicking a FG? You have to score twice anyway, so what in the world are you doing trying to score a TD, running more time off the clock and you don't even give yourself a chance to do anything IF you even get the onside kick? It's elementary. . . Wade Phillips just did this and it irritates me to no end.
3). Everyone does this more than you think, but why waste 5-10 seconds before calling a timeout after a play is called? Good god.
4). In regards to Marvin Lewis today, as the old saying goes, crap or get off the toilet. What are you doing trying running the ball with 30 seconds in the half left on your own 30? AND THEN setting up a screen pass on the very next play? This is time management issue IMO. Good lord, how dumb do you have to be? Either hurry it up or take a knee.
