It’s that time of year again – football season.

Think about it, after nearly ever play the whole team huddles to plan the next play often times with direct communication from the coaching staff – most other sports are more fluid – and the strategic decisions are more consequential given that there are only 16 regular season games (compared to 82 games in the NBA regular season and 162 in the MLB regular season).
