Ich war und bin nicht immer der größte Fan von dem, was die Atlanta Falcons in ihrer Personalpolitik veranstalten, aber der Head Coach Mike Smith, der ehemalige Defensive Coordinator der Jacksonville Jaguars, gehört zu meinen Favoriten, auch und vor allem wegen solcher Schilderungen:
Mike Smith fielded a bunch of softball questions before some jerk (me) asked him if his fourth-down strategies were going to change. Smith said that he will remain aggressive. He said that going for it on fourth-and-short is a good strategy „statistically.“ Yay. I asked if he planned on putting in some special packages for fourth-and-short, and he said that he does critical analysis during every offseason, and „fourth down and one is at the top of my list.“ Go, coach, go!
