It has to be asked. I'd like to think NO but Don's actions speak volumes. The first one was the punt from the end zone instead of giving up 2 - that led to 7, which in turn led to the next 7 and tie game.
Then its 3rd an 9 on your own 40 with under a minute left and he calls a fake punt run play? There's only 2 explanations ...
- He wanted to get at Buono and the Lions and threw the game OR
- Don has become a bush-league coach.
He has lost every game so I tend to favour #2, but then again he knows he's probably not back next year and has nothing to stop him from taking out a personal vendetta. Either way, that was a PEE WEE coaching decision. The all-time best coach has egg all over his face and his reputation has been seriously diminished these last 2 months. Tonight topped it all off.
Oh well, as a Lions fan I expected to be in this situation where we have to beat Calgary to get 2nd. The Leos mojo will be tested!
