Did you think that game-crippling poor decisions were only a specialty of Mike Martz? You are wrong. St. Louis football fans longing to the days of Martz and his inexplicable poor game caling were treated to a Martz-like moment from new coach Scott Linehan on Sunday. The St. Louis football team led 16-14 early in the fourth quarter when Linehan made a decision to pass on fourth-and-1 from the Seattle 12 instead of taking the chip-shot field goal. They play was bad on so many levels, not the least of which was that it did not go to Torry Holt. Instead it went to some anonymous tight end who was triple covered and needless to say, the play—like Martz's career—failed.
The St. Louis football team lost 24-22. Not like a field goal would have mattered or anything thing. It is like Martz never left at all.
