Groden has no regrets about not going to land
by Cindy Burin and Marc Musk
Raiders coach Jon Gruden defended his decision to go for a field goal instead of relegating on Saturday night, a decision that backfired when the Dolphins, just by FitzMagic, won 26-25 in another field goal again.
“It’s hard to swallow now. That’s a terrible way to lose a match,” Groden told reporters. “I really like the way we compete. But until we start finishing matches we will still be disappointed. This is clearly a reflection of me. I don’t regret my knee. We wanted to give the dolphins the ball with as little time left as possible. I thought we did.” – I left 19 seconds on the 25-yard streak. They played a desperate match and we had a penalty above that. Unforgivable. “
The big theatrical was Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 34 yards to the wide receiver Mack Hollins, which was wide open due to the blown coverage by the Raiders. To make matters worse, Arden Key grabbed and rolled the midfielder’s face mask and hit a 15-yard penalty kick that placed the ball on the 26-yard line 12 seconds before the match. All the dolphins had to do was kick the award-winning field goal.
Groden said Fitzpatrick was swinging in the fourth quarter and the plan was to prevent him from being “in a quadruple position”. “He’s the gunslinger. He was hot. That’s all I can say. I don’t regret it a bit. I just regret the results. But 19 seconds left, on your 25-yard streak, no time out? I’ve called the plays for a long time. Possibility to do.” So far. “
