how some of you can blame mare for this loss is beyond me. enemy #1 is mularky. week in and week out his offensive "gameplan" fails. the fins are only able to score late in games when we play out of desperation and while the other team is playing soft coverage. im not mad at any player for this week, not even sammie morris..becuase those mistakes are forced upon by the other team and are a spur of the moment type of thing. however, the bone headed stuff mularky calls is beyond me and part of the blame also has to go to saban for allowing these calls to filter through. why didnt we run the ball at the end when it was 3rd and 2 with over 40 secs left. we could have gotten crucial yards plus convert a 1st down, while also having enough time for about 2 more plays. instead they chose the risk of a short passing play which ended in zero yards, thus leaving mare with a high chance of failure.
also that kick had to be rushed becuase it was close to being blocked. im not arguing that mare is overpaid, im just saying you cant expect your kicker to be automatic at 50 plus, but you should expect the coaching staff to be competent.
