NFL Opinion

NFP - Tavern talk: Learning from experience - Mike Lombardi
Lombardi thinks the Bungles should have run more time off the clock at the end of their TD drive. I'm not so sure about that; when you NEED a touchdown, you've gotta just get it; there's no sense in running the clock out on yourself. It's different if a FG is okay. The problem was letting Stokley get behind the defense.
