That 4th and 8 was definitely a conversation starter!


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.

I know about that Fourth and 1. I remember thinking the guy who put that out was on drugs and then recalculating the expected points and was like, damn, I learned something today!

So, are we all on board when it's 4th and one from our 12 yard line and we go for it?

Now THAT would be ballsy. And, truth be told, we could end the argument with " we won the super bowl", drop the mic and be on our way, regardless of the outcome. It's a good fall back line.

Umm, no.

I think using EP in the variable is horseshit, but if it's 4th and 1 at your own 12 I'm not sure how using EP helps that decision. It doesn't matter anyway - I don't want to relitigate the whole subject, but some basic accepted NFL norms have to factor into your coaching strategy.
