The defense kept its end of the deal time and time again.

I was going to post that as well. I wonder if anyone here ever railed against Dougie P for those calls, I have a hard time remembering... cool.gif

Easier to do when you have a very good O Line, powerful Rt OG, big athletic QB, Big RB.

I think that it was Mike Stoops that called them "alumni plays". If you don't make them the alumni want to fire you. I think coaches punt too often too but given that 4th and 8 situation and the time left in the half from the Giant 43 I thought that was a horrible call (that's an alumni call on my part). Why give them any momentum when you're way ahead? I think that we beat the Patriots on a dumb fake punt our something when they had us on the run and it turned the game around and we won a few years ago. I didn't have any problem with the rest of them though. Of course when you make a lot of them like we did last year there's not much to bitch about. Belichick goes for a lot of them too. I was surprised they kicked a FG after the McLeod tackle.

Almost all of his 4th down calls I agree with, and it's a big reason we beat the Pats. I'll never stop railing against that stupid 4th and 8 decision when the subject comes up, but he learned from that the rest of the year and didn't cross from 'bold' into 'idiocy' ever again. I can honestly say I don't remember any huge mistakes after that in his game management, apart from tiny blunders any coach runs in to.

C'mon man, find a different nit to pick. If he coached this way for the next 20 years every year, I'd give him 5 times the amount of screw-ups a season before it bothered me.

Hey buddy, the post was meant to troll, and troll it did. I just stuck by my opinion.

That 4th and 8 was definitely a conversation starter!

I remember doing a bunch of research on it and being surprised just how often the odds say you should go for it on 4th down. There was a thing called expected points depending on drive starting point etc. There was a chart I remember that basically said it was technically wrong to go for it on that play, but if he was two yards closer, it would have been right to go for it. Trust in your defense is a big factor. Shit, you don't come out of the season with a 73-3 point difference as a result of 4th downs without both the O and D doing a great job.

Exactly. Finally, someone is looking at the NUMBERS and actually making decisions based on them, instead of doing what football people have done for years. Amazing how the numbers play out the way they're supposed to...

Breath of fresh air.

As a result of our success, this will be a trend starter and you will see significantly more fourth down attempts than previous practice in the NFL.

I don't know about you, but I'm comfortable and expect us to go for it on so many fourth downs.

To say the least.

I know that statistically you should never punt on 4th and 1, but obviously you're going to have a tough time explaining that one to your fans if you fail on your own 20. Doug's calls have been outstanding.

People need to be less focused on the specifics, or even the results, and just be happy with the thought process.

He's gonna make decisions you question, but it's very apparent that they're at least grounded in intelligent statistical analysis.

The one analogy that comes to mind is Bill O'Brien's short tenure at PSU. After the sanctions, he basically rolled with a "nothing to lose" mindset and it worked out tremendously. The feeling was that he would carry that mentality to the NFL.

Alas, once he went to HOU, he started calling it like every other boring ass, conservative NFL coach. And his results have been tremendously mediocre.

I couldn't be more happy that Doug isn't that guy. Regardless of the outcome.

I'm with you.

Although I'm not so sure more people will go for it--at least not a HUGE amount of people. The NFL is notorious for being conservative.

Better for us.
