Anytime a coach resorts to trick plays you know you are seeing the end. It's a last resort, desperation attempt. It's what an alcoholic calls "hitting bottom."

In a time where winning is everything, a few games in and you're done. Not everyone is going to win every game every year.

and they are still better than the vikes because they will get a great pick at the end of the year when we get another mid round draft player that may or may not be any good...

I wish corporate america was more like the NFL.. Suck at your job and can't produce, pack your bags! Good at your job, rewarded nicely. How many of us know someone who sucks at their job, but they still show up every morning.

I agree! In particular with the $700Billion bailout! There's concern that the execs will get big bonus checks/salaries after the bailout. Why are these people still there? If they driven the company into the ground they should have been fired! Along with the entire board of directors!

Adding trick plays to a playbook can catch opposing teams off guard and lead to big yardage, give future teams more complex schemes that they have to prepare for during practice, and add excitement for fans. I'm not saying trick plays should be used all the time, but when they're added on to an already competent playbook, they can really enhance a team's game.

If having a great head coach is allegedly the secret to winning the Super Bowl, why does Jerry Jones have Wade Phillips as his head coach? Jerry has way more money that Zygi, and he's fired guys like Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson! There are over a million more people living in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex than there are in the entire state of Minnesota, and Jerry has no problem financing and building new stadiums. There is no cap on what you pay NFL coaches, so why would Jerry hire a guy like Wade, whose big resume item is that he once benched Doug Flutie and lost the Super Bowl for Buffalo in the Music City Miracle game? The answer: Wake up people: it's NOT the head coach!
