‘Playin’ checkers while these fools play chess!’

In chess all pieces are used. Pawn structure being set up right is a good analogy to the kicking games importance. You sound like someone who ignores everything but the queen and rooks.

The most consistent way to gain the field position advantage is to be good in special teams play. Big plays usually happen when a team or player is unprepared for a situation. On the other hand, when a team is properly prepared, they have put themselves in position to create or capitalize on a break. Therefore, understanding the scope of the kicking and return games and making them a priority are the foundation to solid special teams play.

This is a good way to tell who doesn't know **** about the game. Thanks for the demonstration.

This should not be hard. The shorter the field the easier it is to score and vice versa.

You got all this from a meme?

And that analogy is absolute nonsense.

And you sound like someone who combs through the trash trying to find something - anything - to praise.

Why is Hooker inactive? He's our best free safety. I understand Thompson on special teams but UGH... we don't have a legit backup FS now if Kazee goes down.... and Hooker is better than Kazee. Why not deactivate someone worse?

That must be why Goodwin, Anger, and Zurlein earn so much more than Dak, Zeke and Amari.

Those are because of market dynamics and market dynamics are not an analog to win shares.

Fact is that field position matters. If we can get shorter fields because Sprinkle is good blocking on returns and pin them deeper because Thompson is good in covering kicks then it helps us win.

Name a Cowboys team of the past twenty years to put this type of emphasis on the kicking game. You cannot.

We win the kicking game then we go a long way towards winning the game.
This aged well.
