Mabye he didn't think 4 running strides and possesion constituted a 'football move.'
I don't think that 'one' play lost it for them though. It certainly didn't help their situation, but wasn't the sole reason for the loss.
This game was a combination of Marty and the inexperience of Philip Rivers. That last drive with a minute to go they wasted WAY too much time getting to the line and getting the play off, that falls on the QB. The challenge was bone head decision for sure. The muffed punt wasn't Marty's fault, he didnt make the player drop it. Also that DL for the chargers who head butted the Pats player on 3rd down and got flagged for 15 yds and kept the Pats drive alive and they got 3 more points out of it.
It was just a bad day all around for everyone except LT, but in the end to many mistakes killed them.
Both teams are Super Bowl ready although the Steelers have taken a step back with now needing an OC. Both have good QB's, both have good defenses, both have awesome running backs with one of them coming off an MVP season... if I was all about security and keeping my job I would say the Steelers job would be best. However, if I wanted to get into the coaching position do my thing, try and win a quick SB or really suck and get fired and hope to land somewhere else then I would have to say the Chargers
Update: I heard on ESPN News on my way home tonight that Marty will be back for one more year however, he did turn down a 1 year extension.
ESPNews reports San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer will be retained and coach the team for the 2007 season. Schottenheimer declined a one-year, $4.5 million extension that included a $1 million buy-out option for the team.
"Give me a 6 pack, half hour of rest and lets go play them again....We can beat them."
"They say that when you're the champs, everybody will try to beat you. Well, I'm glad we're the champs, so bring 'em on, bring 'em all on. If we die, we ain't gonna die running. It's gonna be a fight."
So he's giving it another go then eh? Im glad for him, for all his shortcomings and coaching blunders the guy got real close this year with a very young team. Maybe he'll learn from his mistakes ?
well ok maybe not...
