Said a great cavalry general when asked the key to victory.

Or, as Bob Blackman used to say with tongue in cheek: "Offense is easy, you just knock everybody down and run the ball into the end zone."

Sounds like Blackman favored execution over strategy.

He was a master strategist and a stickler for execution. Whether it was offense or defense, you had to know your assignment and execute it exactly as it was drawn up. If you failed to do those things, or were unable to do those things, you did not play.

Blackman did not tolerate players with a propensity for fumbling, dirty play or holding. There were some excellent players who rode a lot of pine because of dirty play, fumbling or holding. You played the game right or you sat.

Nice anecdote, but I don't think that having a distaste for fumbling is unique to Blackman.

True. But excellent coaches tend to have teams which fumble less than others.

Don't discount the usefulness of under-inflated footballs.

Or, overinflated egos.
