Why was Vinny Testaverde still playing in a 27-0 game with less than two minutes left?
Coach Herman Edwards' explanation, that he wanted to score a touchdown to avoid a shutout, was ridiculous. That wasn't the case last week, when Edwards ordered the offense to run out the clock with 5:25 left while facing a 30-3 deficit against Carolina. The decision not to put Kliff Kingsbury in the game blew up in Edwards' face. "We wanted to put points on the board," he said, "and I needed to give Vinny a look." After 19 years? A look at what?
Testaverde sprained his right ankle on a sack with 1:11 left, had X-rays and might not be able to play next week against the 2-8 Saints. With Brooks Bollinger (concussion) in doubt, Edwards could wind up with Kingsbury as his starter. Jay Fiedler isn't scheduled to come back until early December - at the earliest.
IMO: Herman is lost...i think this collapse may not cost him his job, but it will definately take away from his sanity.
