Well a replay shows Carroll plain as day telling the ref on the sideline "call time out". Pretty funny watching him doing the "who called time out?" act. I do agree about these time outs being called right at the snap of a field goal attempt though, I mean how many times have we seen kickers miss the first attempt only to get a second chance and make it to win the game?
But I think Seattle lost this game during the last drive on the go ahead touchdown. First and goal from the 4 yard line w/ 35 seconds on the clock. Seattle should have run a simple QB or HB dive play to keep the ball in play and the clock moving. They still had 3 times outs, let the clock run down to 15 seconds and call time out. They still have 3 chances to score, 2 time outs and plenty of time to go 4 yards and seal the game leaving at the worst 10 seconds on the clock.
However, it's nice to see Tony Gonzalez win a playoff game.
