Marrone went for 2 up 31-12 with 25 sec to go vs Jets

Recommended Posts

Still bitter about not getting that Jets job?

 

the chart says go for 2 if there is 4+ min to go, Petty McPettison

But Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said sending a message was the last thing on his mind, since the Jaguars were dealing with some injuries, and he stuck straight to his conversion chart.

“We had a lot of guys banged up for the PAT/field goal [team], and on the chart it just said 19 [points],” Marrone said, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “On the chart it says go for two. I’m one of those guys, I never try to take anything for granted in an NFL game. Try to keep working those mechanics and doing it, so just went for two. . . .

We’re not good enough to send a message right now.

Of course, not everyone in his locker room seemed to get that memo.

Quarterback Blake Bortles joked “I just work here,” and defensive tackle Malik Jackson said it was definitely personal.

“He doesn’t like those guys,” Jackson said. “I don’t know what they did to him, but he doesn’t like them.”

The guys a good coach. His teams never get blown out. Our defenses were better with him and he’s an offensive guy. He probably just didn’t want to be told to play EJ anymore. I don’t know why people are mad at him. Be mad at the idiot that gave him the opt out.

So what. Maybe he wanted to work on the 2pt conversions. Maybe he was running up the score. That's fine. There are tie-breakers based on point difference that can come back to haunt a team. You never know how a season will play out. Take what you can get every week. It's the opponents job to stop you.

If you're worried about tie breakers this early ....  you must know you have weaknesses.

this was against the Jets - nothing to do with EJ or an opt out

While I’m aware of that tiebreaker, I’m curious if it’s ever been used. It’s way down the line. But I doubt that was what he was going for there since the risk is greater to get zero points when going for two.

Hey, at least they had the opportunity to go for a 2pt conversion. 

 

Cool. Ruthless. People care more about one's ability to be liked, rather than coaching a winning team.

 

Marrone and Hackett are doing much better than our staff, even with a QB that most ridicule.

Seems pretty obvious IMO the Jets promised him the job to get him to opt out then got cold feet when we threatened to file tampering charges.

Don’t understand how a losing team gets the right to ask for mercy. I think running up the score is great. This is a mans game and if I can take a chance to send a message (especially coming off a disastrous loss last week) I’m gonna do it. 

I wouldn’t like it if it happened against the bills, but I would blame the bills for being terrible, not the team that isn’t.

 

Also, Manish Meta is a tool.

To paraphrase Woody Hayes, he was probably upset that he couldn't go for three

Big deal...maybe they wanted to work on 2 point plays.


Bellicheat goes for it on 4th down when up by 40 points late in the 4th quarter.

If they don't like it then they should get better players

It's the defense's job to stop them. If they don't like it, then stop them.

Doug Marrone rejects the idea that their 4th quarter 2-point conversion was meant to be a shot at the Jets.

 

ESPN

His own player said otherwise above 😄

 

also Manish Mehta has had a longtime beef with him
