I actually think in a way it was a good idea

It forced the Ravens into worse field position hten punting into your endzone and based on hte Ravens position htey literally were going to send everyone back to block for Sams.
It was the best in a pair of bad situations

of course it mattered. it was points. marty gave them, 2 points. what is this? if we have to watch LT run repetitively then why do we gotta watch a "self safety"? our D was due. never bet against our defense.

Shit, I'll bet against our D everytime we go into SUPER-ULTRA-MEGA-MARTY-CONSERVATIVE MODE.

I think the safety was good idea, with it the ravens still needed a td to take the lead it just made it harder for them (giving them worst field position) to score that TD, also, at that time Scifres was hurt, who know if the ravens could have blocked a punt from the endzone

The only problem would have been if the Chargers had more time at the end of the game and had scored a FG that would have tied it instead of winning it

Our punter was racked up and facing a kick from his own end zone .

The Ravens had failed to move the ball on our defense the entire game.

Taking the safety was smart.

The key on that was the time keeper failed to start the clock on the play until we ran out of the end zone then he ran off 1 second. The refs changed that and ran off 3 however I think we got short changed a few seconds.

All in all if we had tackled McNair when we had him in the defenders grasp not once but twice or if we had converted on those FG we win on the road.
