The larger point is that the setup used is Marschs call and Murillo messed it up (or Giovinco saw what was happening and took the kick quick). Robles did his part and people are unjustly placing blame on him. I guess you could blame him for not disagreeing strong enough with Jesses plan. In the cornerback scenario, you can blame the cornerback and coach, but not the linebacker.
You're talking like the game plan was infallible, which is the point ivo was reasonably calling into question. Having a guy try to sprint backwards to the post as a free kick is being taken by one if the best in the world isn't exactly straight out of the "soccer 101" textbook, there's a reason you rarely ever see it done. If an NFL coach tells his cornerback to ignore the route and do the Macarena instead, do you still blame the cornerback for not stopping the TD?
