Norv Turner = Horrible Game Manager
4th down, with the ball, 3 second to go, up by a touchdown. You can run any number of plays here...
Shotgun snap, let rivers run backwards for a couple seconds and fall down
Shotgun snap, have rivers just throw a ball deep out of bounds
Run a sweep or something, just make sure the back runs around for 3 secs
What does he do??? probably the riskiest thing he could possibly do, punt the ball. This opens the door for a blocked punt or a PR TD, both things that can plausibly happen. Theres almost nothing that can go wrong outside of a bad snap if they go with one of the other options.
OK, the Raiders didnt block the punt, the Chargers got the W, but its just the typical horrible game management and unfathomable decisions that Norv continues to make and it has cost them games in the past and its gonna keep hapenning. Im a raider fan and really just couldnt believe that Norv would be stupid enough to give us a chance.
