Why I Love Football

So many other sports going on right now.  But here I am in the offseason wishing September would get here faster.  So here's food-for-thought on a slow weekend from a football-deprived fan.  

Football has more teamwork and coordination than any other sport I can think of.  It's not unusual to have all 22 players involved in a play, both pre-snap and after-snap.  I don't think any other sport comes close.

Other sports have impressive athletes performing incredible moves of agility, power, and speed.  Same as football.  But most actions in baseball basically involve 3 people: pitcher, batter, catcher.  In soccer and basketball there's teamwork for sure.  But a lot of those games involve one-on-one matchups, taken one at a time.  Football has all of these matchups going on at the same time.  I like watching tennis as the French Open is on.  But (with the exception of doubles, which gets little publicity) tennis is all one-on-one.  There's lots of strategy and athleticism, but no teamwork to speak of.  Golf, same thing, with even less strategic interaction than tennis.  I think hockey is dynamic like football...I guess I'd like it better if I had ever learned to skate.  :)

I think the teamwork angle makes the coaching and planning roles in football more important.  And I think that just makes it more interesting and exciting to watch.

For me, the opposite of football are the individual events at the Olympics.  Impressive stuff no doubt...but just plain boring compared to football.

Pat and Ed,I may not have been clear with my question. I was not referring to Eli running a 2 minute offense all game. I understand Pat's point about. My point is exactly as it seems. If we are going to run the 11 offense 90% of the time. Just let Eli...

Well, what they have been doing hasn't been working.  At even a fundamental level.   So they're gonna have to change something up, one way or another.  I don't care how strong Pugh is, if he can stand on two feet and get in the way of the DE he'll be a...

I don't think the Giants can do anything other than what they are doing now.This notion that Pugh is a left tackle and a good one at that is not shared by me or the coaching staff. He struggled at right tackle last week reminding us that his lack of l...

Thursday night was the most entertaining game of the year; let’s hope it spells a league-wide shift from the awful play of the first two weeks of the season. Not only was the game entertaining, but packed with fantasy goodness! Cheers to all the readers who started Gurley, Watkins, Garcon and Hyde. Bravo. On to starts and sits! Starts Buck Allen, RB, BAL From a waiver wire add to an RB2 in the blink of an eye, Allen looks here to stay. The only healthy RB in Baltimore will continue to be fed in the passing game, making him especially juicy...
