Rams vs Cardinals – Q2 Update (2)

I am so MAD!!!!  We are not playing bad, but our time management is soooo bad.  We are not playing to win.  Luckily we are playing another really bad team so we actually are leading, but you cannot beat a decent opponent with out trying to win.  DANG!!!  Ok, so what am I complaining about?  At the end of the first quarter we had plenty of time to run several smart plays.  Instead we stand around and let the clock wind down and then attempt a trick play.  Stupid.  Now at the end of the second half quarter we do practically the same thing.

We start the drive with about 3 and a half minutes on the clock on our own 20 yard line.  We begin to play some smart football.  A few running plays and a few passing plays.  We are rewarded with a 26 yard pass to Lloyd bringing us to the Cardinals 46 yard line.  Now with just under a minute remaining in the half Bradford throws a 17 yard strike to Lloyd.  Now we’re on the 20 yard line and there is about :36 seconds left.  Bradford is sacked and the entire team stands there and lets the clock run.  I am screaming for about 20 seconds.  Why is no one calling a time out?  The clock runs down to about 3 seconds and finally a time out is called and a field goal is kicked.  We had time for another 2 or 3 plays, but we didn’t even try.  The score is 9-3 Rams, but this is super frustrating.
