20/20 Hindsight

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Falcons coach Mike Smith justifies decision to go for it and not kick a field goal at the end of the second quarter, but after the 30-28 loss Monday night he concedes he probably should have taken the three points, D. Orlando Ledbetter reports.

Isn't it amazing how when you look back on an event and decide what you "SHOULD" have done you are right 100% of the time. In Smith's case, I think he would figure out how to screw hindsight up as well.

Re: 20/20 Hindsight

When you're 1 for 30 on 4th and goal, and its a close game, take the frikken points! I still can't believe he made that call. How many games has Mike Smith lost a game going for it on 4th and 1? I told my wife when he didn't take the field goal, its gonna come back and bite him in the azz! And it did.

Although I despise the Falcons and wanted them to lose, I was talking to the television and telling the wife "He better not go for it. He knows they are horrible on 4th down conversions. Take the points" Like always....NOT!!!

What sort of liability do we have for accidentally moving a thread into the wrong area?

What you mean like liability insurance or something?
If something is moved to the wrong place, move it again where it belongs.
Unless it's riddled with porn or something from the previous move....

(Whispers) "I don't have privileges to move from Smacktalk to the NFL area."
I sent a memo.


My question was more of an informational comment meaning.... if we have to move it, it could end up anywhere.
