Prevent Defense has its place. Like maybe on the last few plays of a game when a team needs a touchdown. But what really gets me is when a team is up by 3 and they play prevent D with a minute or so remaining. And it is so common!
Stanford vs. Notre Dame anyone?

Firing qualified coaches rather than inept general mangers or team presidents.

A related one; firing qualified coaches due to the star player not liking the coach.

Actually, you can. Robin Ventura, anyone?

That's not true. A "grand slam" by baseball definition is a homerun with 3 runners on base.

Ventura was out after rounding first so I think technically, only the winning run counted and the rest did not count.

Football the New York Giants always have a crappy "conservative" philosophy.

1. Any time you punt in opponent's territory, it is stupid. A punt from field goal position (the opponent's 33) is even worse, just go for it.

2. The on midfield with 2 minutes left in the half taking a knee 3 times instead of trying to score. "They are just content to go into halftime only down by 7 at this point." Have some faith in your offense.

3. A playcall having the quarterback roll right and two of his receivers roll far left. Just as bad as the quarterback deciding to make an offbalance throw across his body accross the field begging to be intercepted.

4. Drafting an overall #1 QB specializing in running like Vince Young and trying to change him into a traditional pocket passer.
