Please No Smitty Ball!

I actually think it depends on the lead you have. If you are up by 2 TD's or something, you want to start to run clock. The key is you now have to be efficient. You can't throw the ball 3 times & punt only running 1 minute off the clock, but at the same time, you can't run 3 times & punt even if you run 2 minutes off the clock. The goal is to move the sticks in 2-3 plays, eventually score (even if it is only a FG) & run 6-7 minutes at least. If you do that twice, when they get the ball back after the 2nd possession, even if they scored a TD on the first possession, you are still up by 13 points & you have ran at least a whole quarter. So Smitty ball fails when we fail to convert 3rd downs
