Reviewing the facts: 2:06 left on the clock, Second and 5, Bills own 27 yard line, Bills up 27-24. The Bills are trying to run out the clock.
Jauron calls a play action roll out pass. A pass is a great playcall because if the Bills run the ball, the clock will stop at the 2 minute warning. So as long as the Bills pass play takes 6 seconds or longer, the clock will stop at the 2:00 mark.
A play action roll out pass takes longer than just a 3 step drop back. Plus the QB is outside the pocket so he can throw it away without fear of an intentional grounding penalty. The Jets had the line of scrimmage stuffed, so a pass play had the potential to catch the defense off guard and pick up the first down.
Unfortunately for the Bills, the play ended in an absolute worst case scenario. It might not have been best call in the history of football, but it was hardly such a bad call that he deserved to be fired on the spot. Don’t blame the playcall, blame the execution.
Besides, how can you blame a guy that looks this retarded?
