    He goes for it. Why? Because in preseason it was exactly what he wanted. Practice short yardage in a real game scenario and if it failed he gets to practice another real game scenario the defense defending a short field.

    It was successful, great, I am sure thats what BB wanted but I think he would have liked to see his defense react to that situation as well.

    not only that, but he challenged his OL, at a time when they probably needed it (after last week's debacle), and made them GET THE YARD when everyone knew they were going to run, and all this against one of the better fronts in the NFL.

    No Jersey Selected

    Preseason is the time to go for it. Nothing like practicing those situations in a real game.

    And we saw that Morris can handle short yardage successfully too.

    To wake the OL up. Up to that point, weren't they like 7 rushes for 10 yards.

    agreed. i think the cbs crew had it right. bb didn't like what he had seen so far of the run blocking and challenged the team. they seem to have "understood" his point
