  • A monument to the great Mike Martz ... on NFL Channel

    2003 Divisional Playoffs - Carolina vs. Rams.

    1:05 left. Clock stopped.

    Quoted from the show:

    Narrator: Unbelievably they did sit on it. With victory just 15 yards away the great show on turf put on the brakes and looked for a safety net. Despite having a timeout and playmakrers like Faulk, Holt and Bruce on the field, Mike Martz played for the tie.

    Jack Snow: Let's play for the touchdown. You can always, you know, go the field goal, so let' s play for the touchdown.

    Narrator: Marc Bulger had completed his last three passes. There was time to take at least three shots in the endzone. The Rams never tried. In the final 74 seconds of regulation they ran just two plays.

    25 seconds left and clock ticking.

    Steve Savard: Let's see if Mike Martz wants to take a time out here.

    Jack Snow: I would take it now. Take it now and try to get into the endzone.

    Cut to Marshall kneeling on field with a disgusted look on his face.

    Panthers Announcer: They may be just thinking field goal right now, because they're letting the clock run down. That is not Mike Martz football typically.

    Crowds booing.

    10 seconds left clock ticking:

    Panthers Announcer: He's not even going to try to take a shot at the endzone.

    Panthers Announcer 2: I would have definitely taken a a couple of shots at the endzone.

    5 seconds left clock ticking:

    Panthers Announcer: Doesn't show a lot of confidence in Marc Bulger, his quarterback.

    3 seconds:

    Steve Savard: Mike Martz is going to play for the tie at home.

    Narrator: A fifth Jeff Wilkins field goal would give Mike Martz what he wanted a chance in overtime.

    The kick was good, but no St. Louis Rams celebrated. There was some clapping, but no celebration.

    Narrator: Overtime in a playoff game is no place for the faint hearted. One could only imagine Marc Bulger's mindset as he prepared for sudden death.

    He should've been fired after that game.

      Cost the Rams quite possibly a 3rd SB appearance. Hopefully this is his last year in STL.

        It was disgusting watching it again. You can see the anguish on Faulk's face in the clip.

        And yes, he should have been fired after that game.

          Mike Martz, fucking things up everyday since 1999 SB.

          You put Belichick with the Rams, and well, you have an even bigger dynasty than whatever the Patriots have.

          I'm glad I'm not a Rams fan.

            No, he should have been fired at that MOMENT, and ridden out of the Dome on a rail covered in tar and feathers.

                            If he goes on to win six Super Bowls (as if), I hope there's still someone around to remind him on his deathbed of this game.

                            I can't think of a more pathetically gutless decision by a coach or manager in postseason play in any sport.

                              If Savard and Snow wanted to go for it, do you need any further evidence?
