As a former Texas High School football coach I find your web site absolutely refreshing. Your article on contrarian offenses in football hits the nail on the head. The objective of offense should be to figure out what the other team expects and then do something else. Your thoughts on the NFL are also on target. It is now a boring game run by theater producers not football people. For evidence check out the Super Bowl half-time shows. When I became a head coach I ran the Houston Veer because it was so different in the area I coached in. We were able as time went on to tweak it to fit our players abilities. I wasn't trying to be silly about doing something different just to be different, but as it turned out we were the only team in our district to run an option play and pass more that 10 times a game.
Thanks for your web site.
