24 seconds and one timeout to move the ball into field goal range and you have the quarterback take a knee? Isn't that something bad teams with really $hitty quarterbacks do?

There was nothing wrong with what they did. Ben could have thrown an interception.

He could throw an interception in overtime just like he did. That doesn't make sense. If they didn't have the timeout then I would understand, but 24 seconds with one timeout shouldn't just be thrown in the garbage.

You don't not make plays based on what might happen. You run plays to make things happen. That was pathetic. They could have run 2 plays in that time. I think Tomlin's clock management and key decision making have not been good as of late. He is horrible with timeouts.

Exactly. Probable even three plays.

I agree they could have taken a shot down the field 20 or 25 yards and called timeout and then try and pick up another 15-20 yards the next pass play and then just spiked it and tried to kick a game winning FG. To simply waste 24 seconds with 1 timeout left was a stupid move by Tomlin but I am not surprised at all that he did it because Tomlin's clock management and understanding of game situations is beyond pathetic...

I was shocked as stupid as Tomlin's clock management is. It was a halftime move. It made no sense. Just like you said, you can at least attempt the pass plays and try to get into field goal range.
