jlrfalcon Posted November 9, 2015 Share Posted November 9, 2015 The biggest thing I miss about Smith was that he would always take the ball first when we won the toss. Quinn is obviously the opposite.Take the ball -1) You give your offense time to put up points before the other team even touches it2) You will get 2 series in 1st Quarter and a chance to at least score in one of the two3) You could have a returned kickoff and immediately go up 7-04) You could have a long 10 minute drive to score and really have the other team down5) Your offense can immediately show off any plays they have practiced all weekGive the other team the ball -1) You get the ball first in Q3 which is good if you are down but this says you expect the team to be down?2) It could be meaningless if you are already down by a large amount3) Your defense might hold the other team and you get good field position after a punt but the other team could drive to the 50 before you stop them and you are instead pinned at the 10 yard line when you first get the ballWhy do we always give the other team the ball especially when our offense is considered to be our better side?
