  1. Lions would've called a TO, thus the clock wouldnt have ran out.
  2. I think he knew he messed up right after the game when he came up with the personnel thing. There's no way he's gonna admit anything now.
  3. Why would they? Is this a serious question? Check the NFL. Thats how good clock management works. Every teams do that. You see it almost weekly.
  4. Regardless, clock wouldn't have been milked because the Lions would've called TO.
  5. Lions would've stopped the clock so no need to worry about the time there. It just means Colts would've had 1 more TO left while the Lions would've had 1 less. Its called clock management. Its funny to see the Madden references. It never gets old. Madden or not, you're wrong.
  6. Before posting any further, you should scroll back to page 1. Where did anyone argue for the Colts to not take a TO? You're making stuff up. Colts, if they wanted to take a TO, had to let the playclock run down to 1 second. However, the Lions would've prevented that from happening by calling a TO with 1:10+ left (so over 35 secs on the playclock). Now, please go search the NFL rules and show me where it says that if the opposing team calls TO, that you cant sub. You wont be able to find that because the rules dont say that. You're wro
  7. The fact the Lions scored (or not) has nothing to do with the gaffe by Pagano. Had the Lions not scored (say FG was missed), this doesnt change from the fact Pagano messed up. Its not related unless what you're saying is this: that Pagano's gaffe gave the Lions more time to setup for that FG. Is that what you're trying to say? No matter how you slice it, he messed up. The fact the Lions kicker made or missed the FG doesnt change anything. Its like saying, had the Jets kicker missed that FG vs the Colts in the playoffs 6 years ago or so after Cald
  8. Pagano's reasoning was wrong. The Lions were always gonna call a TO had the Colts tried to milk the clock. All this would've meant is the Colts would've saved their last TO and the Lions would have 2 left. Last I checked the NFL rules, if 1 team calls a TO, both teams are allowed to sub. There's nothing in the rulebook that prevent 1 team from subbing. Why is this even used as an argument?
  9. I never disputed that the Colts might have had personnel issue. I'm not ever sure why you bring this up or why Pagano brought this up last night. It has nothing to do with this gaffe. If he doesnt call a TO as quickly and tries to milk the clock down before calling a TO, the Lions are forced to call a TO. The only logical explanation to your/Pagano's argument for it to make sense is that the Colts wouldn't have been allowed to sub in had the Lions called a TO. The fact is, Colts would've been able to sub all they want. Therefore, this argument ma
  10. I'm not sure what concept of this you do not understand. If Pagano dont call a TO with 1:15 left on the clock, its because his intentions are: -he's hoping to milk the clock before calling that TO -the Lions would've been forced to call a TO to prevent the clock from being milked In both scenarios, the Colts get to change personnel to whatever they want. Why are you even bringing up that as an argument? It doesnt even matter since either team would've still called a TO. Your argument assume that no TO would've been called. You're making up something that would
  11. Your last post was ignorant. Whether the Colts win or lose this game doesnt change the fact Pagano made a blunder. The result of the game is irrelevant. If anything, you're saying Pagano should've tried to kill as much clock as he could (or force the Lions to burn their TO) because Pagano knew his defense is bad. You're actually arguing that he messed up by trying to defend him.
  12. Its funny. You're saying Pagano's gaffe didnt matter because the Colts D is bad. What kind of argument is that? If anything, this means Pagano's gaffe is magnified because then, he REALLY should've done everything he could to milk the clock down. You guys can try to come up with any kind of excuse for Pagano but they dont make any sense. If anything, you're actually arguing that he really messed up ;)
  13. No, he doesnt. You know why? Lions would've called a TO. Thats the whole point.
  14. The Lions would've still called a TO with over 1:10 left. This means the Colts would've still been able to subs. How's personnel related? The fact Pagano said that just shows he missed something. I'm not saying btw that the personnel issue isnt true. I'm just saying it really shows he didnt made that mistake because of time or because he was rushed. It shows he has a weakness in clock management. Its not his first nor his last gaffe in that department. Its a huge weakness for him. He has no ability in that department. Now, if Pagano had not calle
  15. Rewatch the last Lions drive and imagine them only having 2 TOs left instead of 3. Playcall is different, thats for sure. Time wasnt really an issue for them because they still had 3 TOs. You know the playcall is different in that case, right? Thats the whole point.
