Like I said, your three best designed run plays first three downs. Play it by ear if you get to fourth down. You don't call timeout there. If they back us up, fine....more space gives you a better route design so you have more options as a play-caller. But you put the onus on the official to throw the flag, which I don't know if they do because CK snapped it right at zero. But shotgun passes, inside the 10 yard line, three straight plays is unforgivable. Especially after seeing such a well-designed TD run by Gore fooled them so easily just minutes earlier from about the same distance.
And CK should have went to VD on 4th down. Lobbed it up right in the middle of the endzone and let VD out-jump the LB. He made his mind up he was going to Crabs and you can't do that, not in that situation. I know Ellerbe was right on him but a little pump fake could have froze him and got him enough time for a quick flick of the wrist. Young QB mistake...it is what it is,
