nah.The '06 loss was on him. I knew it was going to be another Marty playoff meltdown when he randomly went for it on 4th and 11 in the first quarter. And outside of that bizarre decision, the entire rest of the gameplan was classic Marty overconservatism. It felt like he ran the ball on every single first down with no attempt to change things up.
The players were also totally sloppy, unfocused and undisciplined. Beyond the McCree fumble, there was also Eric Parker's muffed punt and the moronic unnecessary roughness penalties by Florence and Olivea. That team just wasn't ready to play, and that's on the coaching.
I'm less sure about the '87 Browns, but honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if there were some of the usual Marty playoff moments in that loss too. Time just makes people forget about the details of playoff losses like these and only remember the most iconic plays.
Mae outplayed them.
mcree doesn’t fumble game over.
