Disaster in the Making

Pleading the Fourth

Hooray! Another article about going for it on fourth down, with which to poison Mike Smith's brain! But this one is armed with years of Football Outsiders data, and it breaks down the plays which have been most successful on 4th and short. That way, you can figure out what Mike Smith is doing wrong (besides failing to mount a pass rush or hire defensive backs who can tackle or developing decent special teams units or ...)
