Here’s a comparison for you:
It’s not that the NFL has forgotten how to do this sort of thing, it just hasn’t done it well. This year’s Super Bowl is the first to date in which one or more coaches have spoken out publicly against the play, and it’s only getting worse.
The latest comes from Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who was a part of the offensive line during the 2014 season and was a part of one of the best offenses that the franchise had ever been a part of and it was the only time in that 12-year history that the team had ever finished above .500.
So, as Hackett was speaking to reporters on Tuesday, he was asked if the Bills would consider changing the play after what happened over the weekend in Houston.
“We’re going to wait until after the game,” Hackett said, via the Buffalo News. “We’ll see if our quarterbacks play better when we get our guys back. But there’s some things we need to look at, some things we need to fix. I don’t think we’re looking at this like it’s a bad thing.”
When it comes to what can and should change the play, Hackett says that it needs to be as simple as it gets — one quarterback throwing down field and an additional pass being attempted by a running back.
“You can go back and say, ‘I want to change it. I want to do a different type of thing,’ ” Hackett says, “but just throwing downfield, that’s all I’ve wanted to do forever. I’ve always been able to run between guys, so why would I want to change that?”
As Hackett and the Bills look to finish the season strong, perhaps they’ll have a better idea of how they should approach this process.

There are hundreds of different kinds of cancer; there are tons of different types of chemotherapy treatment, each tailored to an individual patient’s unique risk for developing a dangerous form of the disease. The same may be true for a patient who is genetically predisposed to getting a disease, but is not currently able to treat it because their genetic constitution does not permit them to fight the disease effectively; the disease is currently undetected and incurable. There may be another path that a genetic individual may take to fight a disease. And what are the benefits of going after such a path?
