Armchair coaching Rule 2: Reasonable people (and coaches) can and do disagree.

(2) Reasonable people can disagree.  Reasonable people, and reasonable coaches, can disagree.  Just because you would have done something differently does not mean that the play calling was wrong.  There is no cookie cutter football philosophy that guarantees success.  Elite coaches has subscribed to vastly different philosophies and have employed vastly different game plans.  We each prefer one style over the other, but we should recognize that this is a preference.  
Moreover, there is no cause for indignation if the call that you dispute is subject to reasonable disagreement.
