I found myself pondering these questions and am now curious to see how others would call the shots...
SCENARIO: You are the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals and are facing the 49ers during the last game of the season. The Cardinals have the ball and are currently on the 49ers ten yard line, facing 4 and 10, and have just used their final timeout. The score is 21-17 in favor of the 49ers, with 4 seconds left in regulation. If the Cardinals win they inherit a wild card spot in the playoffs, but if they lose the season is over.
Using anyone currently on the Cardinals 2013 roster - which personnel would you have on the field? What play would you call to try and win the game to send our team into the post season?
(you may be as specific or unspecific with your play calling and personnel as you like)
Good luck! Go Cardinals!
(EDIT: I originally posted having the ball at the Cardinals ten yard line, but i meant the 49ers ten yard line. If you would like to come up with a play for either, thats fine.)
