I didn't watch the game, so I don't know. If the coaches were still being aggressive with the play calling then yeah that's a little disrespectful. I believe you should still play hard, but just call mostly running plays. Go to a more conservative gameplan once the game is out of reach. But keep playing hard.
But even if you don't do that, it's still the defenses job to stop it so I don't have any sympathy
We were calling running plays with our 3rd string RB and he was breaking off 7 yard runs at a time. We should have put Flynn in at RB instead I guess. That would have slowed us down haha.
