Going for the win instead of a tie? Opinions

The last two weeks Dick Vermeil and Jon Gruden passed on going for a tie and went for a win at the end of their games. Gutsy move leaving you open to second guesses galore. You have to be locked into your position as the coach in a organization to even think about doing this. Opinions?

in both cases they had large Short yardage pounding backs that were safe bets to get at least that 1 yard just by falling forward. Yes they were both great gutsy calls but they both had some confidence in their short running game.

If Herm was in the same situation it wouldn't be a tough call because of job security it would be a tough call because the team lacks a true short yardage option (and they have for years).

We haven't had one or haven't used one?
