I didn't go with my gut...

Postby merc » Mon Dec 27, 2004 9:46 am

First, I can still win if Bulger and Akers can score 32 points tonight... but, if I went with my gut, I'd have already won. In spite of telling everyone week after week, post after post, that they should do their research but then follow their gut, I didn't follow my own advice.

My research and other's advice convinced me to leave 48 points on my bench. One of the moves, starting TB(-1) over NE(13), was made just before gametime and is probably the move which is gonna cost me the game. The other one which my gut said to make was to start J McCown(25) over Bulger. Finally, my brain won out when I played J Smith(0) over Galloway (10).

Anyway... it is probably time this season is over since my brain is fried and my gut is overextended. :-D

I did the same thing in putting Kennison in over Clayton...I also had L. Evans on the bench. I still managed the victory even though I had F. Taylor starting.

I made four changes - some multiple players - last week in the first round of the playoffs.

This week, submitted my lineup, and no changes - only because I was away from a computer.

Both weeks worked out OK for me - but second guessing yourself can be almost a narcotic.

Your advise to research then go with your gut is good advise. Maybe next year I'll use it.

I wouldn't beat myself up too much over this call ... it was a smart move to start Smith over Galloway. Smith has been having a great year, playing at home in a must-win game, against a midlin' secondary. I would have done the same.
