The craziness continued today in the NFL Playoffs. The Falcons somehow managed to screw up their 20-0 lead and found themselves down 28-27 in the closing minutes against the Seahawks. Atlanta managed to redeem itself by getting in the position to win with a 49-yard field goal. Pete Carroll tried to save the day in a less-than-glorious way—icing the kicker with that timeout.
Except kicker Matt Bryant's first attempt ended up missing, so Carroll's timeout gave Bryant another shot at sending Seattle home. Cue the game-winning field goal and possibly a new entry in the 50 Biggest NFL Playoff Fails list.
Carroll must've had a helluva time coming up with that locker room speech after the game.
