"Alright men see that machine gun nest over there. I want you all to take these sticks and rocks and charge it head on. One of you are bound to make it through and take out the gunner."

"But sir shouldn't we attempt to flank it or call in an air strike."

"Nonsense private, I like our odds and last time I checked I give the orders around here."

The squad follows their orders and proceeds to get slaughtered by machine gun fire.

If your leader is terrible and doesn't know basic tactics the best soldiers out there are going to be worthless because they are trained to take orders from their superiors.

Luck is an extremely critical aspect in the game of football and nobody likes to think about it because you just can't strategize for the bounce of the ball.

Case in point: DeAngelo's fumble came about because he spun around just in time for Chancellor to have a good angle at hitting ball out. If he had simply fell to the ground rather than turning back towards the field he'd be down, we'd keep the ball and likely score.

Against Buffalo, Luke reaches out and taps Stevie Johnson as he runs by, likely on reflex alone. The ref calls an incorrect pass interference call instead of defensive holding and it negates the game-clinching interception.

Football is probably one of the most luck-influenced sports in the entire world. And it sucks that our luck has been pure shite.


Damn right. I'm not one to believe in "bad luck" or "curses" but I do know we lost, what like 16 straight coin tosses?

Unreal. Maybe we do have black cat syndrome.

John harbaugh and 49ers, Andy Reid and chiefs, (touché if you say e are only three weeks into the season) John fox and Panthers/Broncos, as much as it makes me want to barf to say it; Peyton and the Saints and Mike Smith and the Falcons.

Maybe the brass does have something to do with it....

No, it's Cam's fault and he has regressed. After all Rivera is a 10 time winning SB coach with a proven OC calling the plays.
