Ed Bouchette's Daily Question
Share with others:
Question: In order to keep the score of the Denver game down to where it is manageable, should the offense always punt on first down?
Clark Henshaw, Fredericksburg, Va.
BOUCHETTE: That was a famous suggestion by quarterback Bubby Brister, who made a speech in New Kensington, Pa., for a beer company during the 1988 season, one in which the Steelers started 2-10 and finished 5-11, the most pathetic season I've ever covered. Perhaps the Raiders never would have scored Sunday had the Steelers punted on first down every time the offense got the ball. At least they would not have scored their only two touchdowns the way they scored them, on interception returns.
