What Would Buddy Do?
Peter King, we’ve got Igglesblog on line 1

From MMQB:

c. Marty Mornhinweg … Marty, Marty, Marty. You’ve had a good play-calling December, and now, in the playoffs, and you’re my Coach of the Week this week, but … Third-and-one, 80 seconds left in the first half, you’re moving the ball on the Vikes, Minnesota has just scored to move within 16-14, and you throw deep downfield instead of just getting the first down and a David Akers field goal or maybe even a touchdown right before the half. Just get the first down and a fresh set of downs.

So Peter, you’re sure that Marty Morhinweg decided to go deep on that play?  You’re totally sure it wasn’t the quarterback calling his own plays and having delusions of grandeur?  And even if a deep route was called, are we sure that Mornhinweg wouldn’t have preferred if the ball went somewhere else?

An alternate theory from Igglesblog.

(I really really really need to stop with the Peter King stuff.)

Peter King is an idiot and why do you even read his columns?
I used to read him too because I liked his writing style and name dropping. For the longest time he was writing about his daughters and their exploits in softball which I kinda found interesting even though it was rather excessive and really got old after a while. Then one day it hit me like a bag of rocks– why am I reading this idiot? I suggest you quit this turkey cold turkey, you will be a better man for it.

Oh one more point, 95% of sports writers are idiots and have no clue what they are talking about.

To be honest, it’s mostly just for fodder at this point. Sad but true.

I count myself proudly in that 95%. I definitely have no idea what I’m talking about.
