Whats in a Time out?

Posted 11-26-2007 at 12:25 PM by Manster
The first part of the season some of the big talk was around how the coaches were taking time out right before a kicker tried to make a field goal. People were said the owners would have to get together and change this, maybe even before the season was over. But have you heard anything about this since then. No you have not and you will not hear that much about it either. First it would be very hard to change the rules giving coaches the ability to call time outs from the sidelines. You could either have time frame when a coach could call a time out from the sidelines. Let’s say if the play clock gets down to 10 seconds or under the coach could not call a time out. This could hurt a team in other ways what if a coach just noticed that on a key play he had either too many or not enough players on the field he would be powerless to stop it. Also it would not solve all the problems either. There would be times at the end of a half or game that the kicking team for what ever reason is having to rush out there because they could not stop the clock and the game would end before the play clock would run out. Granted this does not happen all that often but neither does the time out on field goals kicks. Second is does not give an advantage to one team over the other. Just because the coach takes the time out it does not mean that the out come will favor his team. It just so happened that the first two times it was used the kickers made the first attempt but not the second. After Nick Folk of Dallas was able to make both his kicks you have not seen a coach try this again. This is a copy cat league and if something works you can be sure that soon all teams will be doing it. Folks kicks showed first that it does not always work and opened the door on how it could back fire on the coach who called a time out. What do you think all the talking heads on TV would have said if all three of the kickers had made both sets of kicks? I bet this would not even be something that was talked about. To take it even farther what would be said if one had missed the first time and then on their second try was able to make it. The coaches would be called out for doing such a bone headed thing and giving the game away. Coaches are not stupid and know that this could happen why else do you think that they do not call a time out every time some one tries to make a field goal. If the kicker makes the first kick he will be thinking “all I have to do is kick it just like before.” This should be counter productive if you are trying to “ice” a kicker. The whole part of calling a time out and making the kicker wait it to increase his doubt. Doing this should make them even more inclined to think that since they have done it before they can do it again. Did the Chargers call one when the Colts were lining up to try to win the game last Sunday. Because it can both help and hurt the team that calls the time out then the NFL will not and should not make any changes to the rules.

This is a World Cup and in the morning, meaning no trapped in Spain after winning in celebration of flashbacks scenes. Although few goals, often tedious, can I still miss involuntarily group. At that time, was in a style, no one left, alive, are hard, all has the show was a mystery, let your curiosity and excited to guess, No one moved, like all my childhood was happy, sad part. However, we will grow, as the group will end, entered the knockout, like the adult world is cruel, only to win, so cruel, but also so fierce, let a person cannot bear the but again. But the final like? Old age? But as already to leave the glorious moment.

A World Cup, is a life, the same is irreversible and full of stories, different feeling, the World Cup is on the surface of the comedy, and life. But there is a big different, the World Cup, four years in our life, there are a lot of, can wait to finish. It's interesting that life often many games, to really make people feel dolorous, but life is dull and heavy, some itself. So, the World Cup, absolutely for the artificial game, but most truly happy to give fans and comfort. Although the time adjustable from South Africa to Beijing, will be hard, like two days before midnight, I didn't wake up at will. But except for, what more can I say? The World Cup ended the game, we started again, you and I are living on each of the athletes, refueled! And sincerely for the past month, you in my words to you in advance of the meeting. Said, wish you are moving in his World Cup well on all!
