    One thing I will admit about Munchak is that he will go for it on 4th down. If I'm correct, we are 8 for 9 on 4th down. That is an amazing stat.

    How much do you guys want to bet Fisher would have kicked a FG today with 3 mins left to make it 17-16 Bucs?

    Haven't really been the biggest Munchak supporter, but it's good to have a Head Coach that is willing to gamble.

    We are 8-11 because of the first quarter try. I thought we should have just taken the field goal in the first place

    they are 8/10 or 8/11 i think, but I agree I like that Munch doesnt always settle for FG's

    8 for 11? Really? I thought it was better than that.

    Anyhow, it's still a good stat to have.

    that's a good point... if fisher was coaching, that TD would've never happen which meant we probably would've lost today..

    How much you wanna bet he would've kicked the FG on the earlier 4th and 2, which means that FG with 3 mins left would've been good for 19-17. A win either way. I'm pleased with Munchak's aggressiveness, but don't use it as a chance to take a shot at Fisher.

    I like Munch's aggressive philosophy on fourth downs, but he needs to stop going to the flood play in that situation. I knew that was coming from the start on the first fourth down conversion attempt.

    It was gutsy to go for it with 3 mins left, if it failed there would have been lots of second guessers.

    correct, but with the bucs moving the ball like they were in that final drive, they probably would've won with a FG at the end...
    but then again... we never know..
