Hey, I've been following this site all season, but this is my first post. It was very briefly mentioned in the game thread but not really touched upon afterwards. Why did the Colts go for two when they were up 18-14?
The only plausible benefits were if the 49ers scored two TDs then we scored another TD and again made the TPC then we would be tied, but that didn't look like a very likely scenario. Or if the 49ers scored two FGs then we would be tied instead of down by one. But risk wise, if they would have scored one TD then the Colts now can only tie it with a FG. The way this game was going I would have been very surprised if the 49ers would have been able to score two more times in any way, but i mean a lucky TD or a good drive isn't impossible. Obviously everything worked out for the best and we got the win in the end. I have been incredibly pleased with the job that Caldwell has been doing so far but I would hate to see a loss in a big game due to some game mismanagement by a rookie head coach.
