Re: Marc Trestman knows his crap
Hi Ravens fans. I apologize for bringing up a thread that has been buried for a few days now. I wanted to discuss it earlier but it took a few days to be approved.

95% of them think Trestman was a genius for this decision because he made a 2 minute explanation about it citing a percentage that had nothing to do with not using timeouts with 1st and goal and over a minute left. "It’s a leap of faith. They went all the way down the field. Three points yes. Tied the game. Seven points? We’re talking 13 percent." Trestman, 13% doesn't apply anymore. This is simple probability. You are the genius?
It's frustrating to hear someone like Trestman be so openly foolish and then get praised by fans and media for his brilliance because he got lucky and won. Are the fans and media really that naive?
I again apologize for bringing up a thread that has run its course. This is just a topic that is sitting very poorly with me and I finally got approved to comment here.
