On first down from the Falcons 45 Jackson spikes the ball to stop the clock. Again, why not call the timeout after Miller makes the catch and save first down. The wasted down ends up being pivotal as the Hawk do not run out of time, they run out of downs! Ack!
I also thought that if PC knew he was going to attempt an impossible kick on 4th down, then why not run the ball on third? They had the timeout. A running play (perhaps a draw) would have caught the Falcons off guard. If it gains 5, then a 56 yarder, while still unlikely is worth a shot. Maybe Forsett gains 10 and then you are staring down a 51 yard kick. Who knows?
