Kyle Juszczyk really should’ve been celebrated for a huge play on Sunday night in his San Francisco 49ers’ heartbreaking 30-28 loss to the Green Bay Packers, but everyone knew what was coming when they saw how much time was left on the clock for Aaron Rodgers.
Aaron Rodgers got his team into field goal range and Mason Crosby nailed a 51-yarder after the 49ers left 37 seconds on the clock.
Unfortunately for Kyle Juszczyk, his touchdown has not been forgotten, in fact, he is still being criticized for it.
“I’ve been disappointed in seeing kind of the outlash of people saying that,” Juszczyk said during the “Murph & Mac” show. “I mean, all I can say is there are some plays that I want back in that game, but I promise you, that’s not one of them. That’s one I’m not going to change a hundred times out of a hundred. From a football sense, it doesn’t make sense.
“You don’t get to choose in the NFL when you score, even if you’re on the one-yard line. And even at that [point], we’re down six points, so we’re not kicking a field goal. And at what point — how many chances do you give yourself? From then on, do I snap the ball at 32 seconds? Do I snap the ball at 15 seconds and only leave myself two or three plays? There’s too much left to chance there.
“Like I said, that’s not one I’m changing. I’m scoring every time.”
