This is such a segmented game now that you've got your calls on third-and-3 or 4, or third-and-short, or inside the five-yard line.
    I just hope he wasn't serious. Good coaches make adjustments as the game goes on, like a chess match.
    This is the first quote from BC that actually makes me wonder if we go the right guy. He has said all the right things up to now but geez come on someone with his years of experience has to realize that once the game starts he has to make adjustments.

    Oh, come on! Childress knows that good coaches make adjustments...heck, he coached under Reid, who's no slouch...what he was saying is that the good coaches pre-plan for as many situations as possible, so that when the situations arise they already know what their decision should be...this is what facilitates the "thinking on the fly". Think about your particular job...if you think ahead, you already know what you are going to do when something bad happens. Those coaches that can't "think on the fly" are mostly unprepared...those that can are the most prepared. The chess analogy is a good one...the best chessmasters know all the moves ahead of time...the adjustments that they make during a game are just small variations on the same theme!

    Yea, I think he's saying you don't pull stuff out of left field in the middle of the game. At least I HOPE that's what he's saying.
