data driven decision making?

By: scwolf



hate to tell you , but statistically, you are more likely to win games going for it on 4th and 2 from your own 40 rather than punt; there's more than enough research on the internet about this

the reason coaches don't is because nobody gets fired for punting on 4th and 2 - it's considered a "safe" decision; even if I proved to you that 4 of 5 times, playing all 4 downs gets you a first down, that 1 time you don't get a first down and lose a game? You are roasted by the media and fans. So it's not worth it.
