    You know what really grinds my gears?

    Teams that suck that play conservative. If I’m the coach of the Detroit Lions, I’m saying screw it all, let’s kick onside kicks, go for it on 4th down, go for two point conversions, run trick plays and so on.

    I mean, you’ve got absolutely nothing to lose (except a top draft pick), why not play crazy? You don’t even need to always play crazy, but damn it, your team sucks, do something. Just running a standard game plan is in essence giving up because your team is not going to win games running a standard game plan because YOUR TEAM SUCKS. AAARGH!

    You see it all the team, sucky teams are on the 50 yard line, have a 4th and 2 and they punt. WHY? Your team sucks, the other team is going to drive down the field and humiliate you, so why not go for it. You’ll likely fail, because again your team sucks, but at least you’re trying.

    Seriously makes me think that a majority of teams would do no worse without a coach and just having a computer randomly pick plays.
