Deferring the opening kickoff.

For the rest of season, if we win the toss...I hope we take the ball. I get what DQ was trying to do by showing confidence in the D and hopefully stealing a possession at end of half.

However, I think you're always better off leading with your strengths and we're built to play with a lead.

Our best bet is to have our offense get on the field first at this point.  They can sustain drives and keep opposing offenses off the field easier than out defense can get offenses off the field.  

Normally im a proponent of deferring and getting the ball back at halftime, but you have to take your team into account.

He's stupid if he thought that  giving them the ball first to show off his defense. Our offense has been good in our bad years, so the offense sets the tempo.

We took the toss last week. Went down the field and scored. SEVERAL reporters asked about this. I hope it continues.
