dude. lay off your trips in the wayback machine. it is a completely different league now with technology accelerating. You literally now have coaches with eyes on every aspect of a play real time from multiple angles. People on the field have no way to process that better. You are talking instinct vs. reality.It's nothing more than the power structure. It's like any job. Your boss knows better than you regardless of whether or not you're right. On occasion, John Elway called his own plays. I'm sure if Jow Burrow called his own plays, they's still be a good team.
Coaches don't always know better because they are coaches. When does Belichick figure out the better QB is on the bench if Bledsoe doesn't get injured? Same with Dick Vermeil with Kurt Warner. And these are some of the best coaches in history.
Wake up to reality.
