The stats bow down in reverence to Ron's 4th and 10 call at the Dolphins.

Bot is a tad crazy.

He says go for it on 4th and 1 on your own 29 on the first quarter

The robot misses the fact that football is a game of emotion and momentum.  The 4th down call in Miami was a gut check.  Do they want to win or not.  That's what a computer lacks, a Gut.

Luckily Ron has obtained a gut.

I don't think making decisions on a "gut" feeling is the best way to go. The way I see it, emotion and momentum cant be measured and are unit-less. Thus have no effect on the outcome of a play. I'd much rather base my decision on facts and percentages. 

 

Just my 2 cents, but I'm weird like that.

Statistically speaking (playing the odds) it is almost always better to go for it outside your own 20.

Our team has been beating the odds all season. Naturally, they also do it on 4th down.
