Losing the coin toss ONLY bothers me if the opposing team defers and kicks off.

I want the ball at the start of the second half. Every time.
We no longer have the dynamite 15-play scripted offense to start games with.

If our defense HOLDS, it is a confidence-builder and confidence-breaker for the opponent. The MOST they will score is 7 on an 8 possible. That gives us a gauge of our defensive play and sets a needed pace that our offense now knows it will have to outscore to win.

If the opposing team turns over the ball in the first drive that also is a morale-breaker. Advantage us.

A Saint touchdown on an opening drive is not groundbreaking. And it gives the defense a false sense of security. I don't like playing from behind. At all, but what I've noticed is that until we are up by 17 there can be no good feeling.

I don't know, maybe we should toss a coin BEFORE the coin toss, to decide what we will do - Receive or Kick.

Best two-out-of-three!!!!

That's the dicey thing about coin toss statistics. The mathematical calculations give that string of results a 1:2048 probability, but the results of the previous 11 tosses have no effect on the next toss. So the chances of us losing the next coin toss are not 1:4096, they are 1:2.

I can solve that. Just call thing each coin flip (be it HEADS or TAILS). Then you've got to win at least a few of them.

We haven't only lost every flip on the road (when we call it), but also at home (when the other team calls it). You can't blame it on someone on our team every time.

Maybe we should get #58 to do it. Add another thing to the Shanle koolaid drinkers list of reasons to keep him.
