I simply do not agree with most fans on play calling. I don't believe any of us have any idea why a play is called, and the assignment of each guy on the field at the time. Maybe couchscout does when he has a specific assignment; but the rest of us have no clue and we base it strictly on if it worked or not. Notice I am including myself in that cabal.
I'll leave it at that because I know me saying that we as fans have no clue why plays are called usually upsets someone.
I agree, there's so much more that goes into a play than any of us care to know. With my limited technical knowledge of play design, who am I to judge what kind of pass play should be called. The things that I can judge is clock management situations, going for it on 4th or not, and whether to attempt a field goal or punt. Those things or sort of generic throughout football but play calling, I try to avoid.
