When the “game” is on the line (and I know it’s no game, it’s our future) and you’re running out of time, you don’t go with the QB least likely to throw an interception, you go with the QB most likely to throw the long bomb touchdown.
Good analogy! I’m thinking along the lines of Jeff George.
Labeled an arrogant cry-baby and not a locker-room leader. But, teams kept bringing him in because he was soooooooo damn good on the field.
Or when your down late you don’t hold the ball and work it for a good shot you bring the shooter off the bench and start jacking threes. Higher risk, higher reward.
