Why Not Defer?


Recommended Posts

Payton has the same idiotic philosophy. I SCREAM about EVERY TIME we win the toss and he elects to get the ball first to win the game. It's idiotic. EVEN IF you score an opening drive TD, the other team has the ENTIRE GAME to adjust to the IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERCOME 7 point lead.

If you defer, at the start of the 3rd you will have a chance to either:

1. Extend your lead

2. Take the lead, or

3. Cut into theirs.

If we win the toss, I like getting the ball first, myself. Mainly because our offense seems to click better in the first half, as opposed to the 2nd. So, I say, take the ball first and hope to get a quick lead, and try to build the momentum --- it's worked well for us in the past, just not so much this year ---
