Payton's Playcalling

This is a great example why I hate others who bash his play calling. How do you make that AMBUSH call. Not only that but he planned it at least a week before. His mind works like no other and you have to cut him slack for the plays that "don't work". You have to think outside the box. Yeah not everyone is going to work out but to have the balls to make a call like that.

I head them say last night that this call will live in Super Bowl Folklore for years.

Re: Payton's Playcalling

Agreed, but i admit to anger when he goes back to plays that hardly ever work. Like double reverse or even the reverse. he seems to cal it on aggressive defensives hoping they over pursue, but they never do it seems. the other stuff i can live with.

Re: Payton's Playcalling

I've seen his reverses burn teams. You have too.

I've never coached a team to the Super Bowl. I trust our Coach.

Re: Payton's Playcalling

Payton is in the .01 percent of Americans that would have had the Balls to make a call like that in the Super Bowl.

Re: Payton's Playcalling

I have to admit to being frustrated with some of his play calling. But as Choupique said I've never coached a winning Superbowl team. I was even upset that he went deep on the first and two and then we had to punt. I told a friend of mine from out of state that he would kick the on sides kick because that is how Payton thinks. That was just Payton being Payton.

Maybe .... but if he calls one more reverse ... or double reverse ... or triple reverse, maybe where Strief ends up running the ball, I'll scream!

Re: Payton's Playcalling

paytons aggressive calls have resulted in more good outcomes than bad, guess its one of the many reasons we have been the number 1 offense for 3 out 4 years

Funny, I was screaming to get the ball.

I thought it was a brilliant chess move. Checkmate. Game, set, match.

Re: Payton's Playcalling

SP has a computer in his head. Because EXCLUDING DAMN REVERSES he gets the call right. The issue is we don't always execute. But in the SB XLIV, he got the team to execute.
