    No, I can't see how it has either, but they're doing it for a reason.

    The percentage to convert is low already, so it's fine to continue with it even though it hasn't come close to working?

    Bironas himself is not even a fan of it, he's already using the "I'm not the one calling the plays" line.

    as I said before the reason is munch don't wanna be a head coach so he gives up and tells him to scoot it to the other team because hes not a quitter hes tryna get fired

    Rob doesn't seem too fond of their approach either.

    "It's not playing into our favor," Bironas said. "I don't think there are any players in this locker room that call their own plays. I give it my best effort, the idea behind it is obviously to get it to bounce off the hands. You hit a high bounce, it hangs up there for two, two-and-a-half seconds, your men get blocked, it goes more than 12 yards, you've got an easy catch. We see it all the time, it doesn't work all the time."

    Right, every decision the coaching staff makes is done so with their reasoning behind it, that reasoning alone does not justify running it over and over. The reasoning has to be proven correct on the field, otherwise it could be considered "crazy" or "dumb".

    Their reasoning may not be correct, and when the play doesn't come close to working for a third time, people will start to question the decision to keep doing it. Hopefully the coaches will do the same.

    It was embarrassingly pathetic like much of the second half.

    Kern doesn't suck. He sticks KR's behind their own 20 quite often.

    Why are so many people wanting to polish Williams' nob? Our defensive strategy sucks and we give up 150 yards rushing every game.

    Some even want him to be our next head coach. WTF?

    Bironas' onside ball has to be the easiest to handle in the league. A soft ground kick that any player can just lay on.
