As part of the continual, mutual effort to upgrade the quality of the football discussion on this site, I will take this opportunity to warn fellow members (those not already aware of it) of the Hindsight Bias.
When we grade decision makers whose decisions are in the public eye: politicians, businessmen, football coaches -- particularly offensive coordinators -- we are usually too harsh because the fact that we know the outcome of their decisions implants a bias in our minds that is hard to shake no matter how much we want to be fair. This is the Hindsight Bias.
Hindsight bias, or alternatively the knew-it-all-along effect and creeping determinism, is the inclination to see events that have already occurred as being more predictable than they were before they took place. For more information click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindsight_bias.
Some really bad calls are made but never questioned because they had a good outcome. Many good calls are questioned because the play was executed poorly or the opponent simply outplayed our guys.
What calls do you question in this game? Please explain.
Where does Kyle stand with you right now? How about Jim Haslett?
