Apart from an intentional walk or a beanball, yes it is.

Good to get the confirmation that your knowledge on the topic of baseball rivals your fundamental obliviousness regarding all things football.

Coming from you, I'll consider that a great compliment.

I'm the one supporting common football knowledge on this thread. You're on the side of going for it on 4th and 1 from your own 9. Have at it.

No, I've said nothing about 4th and 1 from my own 9.

I'm on the side of being aggressive and trusting your players to make plays. We brought in an "innovating" coach whom I was told was going to push the boundaries as it related to 4th downs and 2 point conversions.

I saw none of that.

If we have a coach who is willing to be that guy now, I'm happy. I hate the archaic, old guard of NFL football. All of the innovation takes place at the lower levels these days.

I'm on the side of common sense and winning. The 'old guard' keep winning rings. Our last 'innovator' destroyed our roster, got rid of our best weapons, and is now unemployed after 3 years (a quick search of this site shows that you had similar praise for Chip Kelly). That's what happens when you ignore established, common sense football decisions and try to show everyone how smart you are.

Last year he made several decisions that reminded me of a 12 year old playing Madden. Not only has he not appeared to learn from his mistakes, but he seems to be getting worse. It bothers me, and it should bother everyone here. 'Aggressive' and 'stupid' can be the same thing.

There is no new guard. Belichick is one of the few that is consistently reinventing himself and adopting concepts from the lower ranks. Andy is another.

He literally did nothing innovative and was actually in the bottom tier as it related to conservatism.

We get it. You think you're smarter than every coach in the NFL. You're not.

Belichick is constantly innovating, while never abandoning basic foootball 101. Andy is innovative as well, while almost serially flubbing basic football 101. One is heading towards a likely 6th championship. The other is headed towards a guaranteed 13th January exit.

This was a post you made over two years ago:

This read is probably the best I've seen with regards to Chip's master plan. I don't know how one could read it and not understand what he is trying to create, regardless of your affinity for some of the guys that didn't fit in.

Chip Kelly and his Relentless Assault on the Status Quo

I know what it's like to introduce new policies and tools in the workplace. In some situations, if just one person doesn't buy in to using a new tool, the entire thing is worthless. That seems to be what is going on here and so Chip is weeding out the outliers. It's fine by me.


I understand how you like to forget history, especially since you were horribly wrong (as always). You hailed him as the new guard. He currently shares our level of NFL employment.

QUOTE
We get it. You think you're smarter than every coach in the NFL. You're not.


Agreed. But I am smarter than a coach who decides to go for it on 4th and 8 in that situation, using flawed data.
