    Right. It's a chess match and it happens right before every snap.

    I don't care how much whining I read over it. I like my franchise QB having the freedom to make those decisions and I'll never criticize the coach for it.

    I honestly think teams show Romo look, then switch out when they hear kill, kill, kill

    My understanding is just THIS, it could be run/pass, pass/run, run/run, whatever. Could mean nothing depending on what is called in the huddle to confuse. So assuming it is always a certain way is wrong!

    That's why they usually wait to the last second.

    Kill could be some kind of indicator.

    In baseball, an indicator is used to let the hitter and runners know that the next sign, or the second sign after the indicator, whatever, was the play.

    If the sign after the indicator was a true sign (belt = bunt) then the play was on. If it was not a valid sign, then there was no play called. Often, the indicator and sign had to be followed by an on or off signal. A swipe across the chest could mean the play was off, while a clap of the hands means it was on.

    It is quite possible that "kill, kill" is an indicator and does or does not mean a thing depending on what follows.

    There is no reason to believe that baseball signals are more complicated than football signals. In fact, watching Dez and Ogtree I suspect that whatever they are using is complicated system.

    I love the Milner quote and Avatar. That movie and that character had a big influence on me when I was a kid.
