Taking risks work, if executed correctly
Mike Tomlin is known for taking some risks, but over the last few years, not many have worked. If Sean McVay taught the NFL anything over the last two years it’s that risks can make a team, if you’re confident enough to pull them off.
The swagger in LA is that they can pull off anything. A fourth down fake punt is nothing more than any other play. Why? Because they practice like it’s part of their game plan. Because it is.
It’s becoming more of a Madden type game every year. Having that atmosphere that you’ll do anything to gain the upper hand gives you an advantage. Plus, it adds confidence. And when the game is on the line, or you just want to put the momentum on your side, having that swagger is a major key.
