Had he missed that field goal, Gibbs would have been reemed out. As you can tell by my threads following the game, I am still very unhappy with Gibbs coaching, yes, we are 3-0, and that is awesome. But we arent a playoff team yet and we are doing stupid things. Gibbs is afraid to coach if we have a lead. He doesnt try to pad a lead and make sure we dotn have a chance to lose in the last second, like we always do. The bears could have kicked a field goal and one, just a field goal. And we were never even in teh cowboys game, and we should have lost to seattle, he should have made that kick.

Im glad luck is on our side, we have needed it. I hope it stays with us long enough for gibbs to learn how to coach again. Yell at me now if you must, but sometimes you have to be a fan, and be realistic...
The plan worked perfect thats should be enough said. To say Gibbs is a chicken he has already clucked his way to four SB's and how many playoffs. Gibbs is just a conservative play caller and he has always been, especially when he has a lead.

Yes, a field goal kicker can at anytime drop kick a ball through the uprights for 3 points.

Now I know.
Any player can drop kick a ball at anytime as long as they are behind the line of scrimage.
