There has been a lot of research over the years that shows that football teams should go for it more often on 4th down. Looks like Haley has bought into the idea. We are going to be going for it on 4th down on a pretty regular basis. Should be interesting to see if the theory holds up in practice. First two tries today were wins.

Yeah, statistically it's not a bad choice a bunch of times.

Haley is the Gambler, and he knows when to hold them AND fold them

Good.

Herm: "4th down was created for punting."

I love his confidence in this young team. As long as the team rewards him by converting, he'll keep doing it. I thought throwing on the goal line was stupid, just like I did last week, but I'm glad it worked out.

Is this going to mess up your playoff calculator?

I know he wasn't the first to study it, but Easterbrook really convinced me on this. I love it.

With our running game, why not? Nice to have a ballsy coach willing to take risks.

it's weird, offensively the playcalling is conservative as hell but then we go for it on 4th down, do onside kicks and all sorts of weird shit.

Depends on where you are at on the field.....but Haley is showing alot of confidence in his defense.

Between 25 and 50 yards out, I'm all for it. 25 and in, take the free points (in most cases). 50 and out, don't give the enemy good field position (in most cases).

I'd generally agree, but I'd amend to say that you go for it inside the 5.

That one I'll leave up to the coaches. To be honest, in that situation I'd be more like a little girl making an emotional decision. I can see it in some situations (up and the D playing well, down and in desperate need), but in a close game it's tough for me to give up easy point.

You definately can't say Haley hasn't got balls.
