Re: play clock
arians knows that if you wait til the last second, you will catch the defense off guard every time.
its his "do the exact opposite of what is logical or conventional, to fool 'em" offens. thats why he is the mad scientist.
either that, or it just takes ben that long to read a defense.
in the old days, when we had a power run offense, we did it to control the clock and keep the ball out of the opponents hands. this is what happens when philosophies collide. tomlin is still a proponent of "smashmouth" football, isnt he?
