45 seconds of mis-clock management

Alright I am second guessing here. At the end of the game, I believe we wasted about 45 seconds of time. I am doing this from memory so I'm approximating.

TB had the ball on our 20 yard line or so, 2nd and 1yard to go w/ about 2min 35 sec's left. We call TO. They make the 1st down and we let the clock run down to the 2 min warn. We then call our 2 TO's after they run on first and sec down for 0 yards. TB runs their 3rd down play, then lets the playclock run down to 1 min before kicking the FG on 4th down.

We could have used our 2 remaining TO's before the 2 minute warning and they would have had their 3rd down play w/ about 2 min 10 sec left. They would then have to kick the FG after the 2 min warning allowing us 2 minutes instead of 1 min.

Am I right here or am I missing something? 1 min would have made a HUGE difference. Thoughts...

Re: 45 seconds of mis-clock management

It seems right but you know what the out come of their drive was and are inserting the TO based on what happened after the fact. Its kind of a gamble when to use them. What if we used all 3 before the 2min and the Vikes make a first down then they could run the clock down to 3 sec kick the field goal and time is up.

Re: 45 seconds of mis-clock management

we actually should have saved all 3 for after the two minute warning in retrospect. they can waste less time that way.

Yes, you're missing something. Using the timeouts, if we had stopped them on 2nd and 3rd down we would have got the ball back with over 2mins left and with a timeout. Without using the timeouts the Vikes could run the clock until 2 mins, we would then still have to call 2 timeouts but would have less time left on the clock.

They both sail ships. It's a common mistake.

We used 1 TO when it was 2nd and 1. They made it making it 1st and 10 and we let the clock run down to the 2 minute warning.

Re: 45 seconds of mis-clock management

hindsight is 50/50 :P

looking back, yeah, using one on a 2nd and 1 isn't a great idea, but it's too late now.

If they hadn't used it on second and 1 the vikes would not have had to snap before the 2 minute warning.
