Is Coaching Overrated? I say no

In the latest Tuesday Morning Quarterback, Gregg Easterbrook writes in his column about coaching. He first mentions that play calling is overrated and then he says the following.
One factor here is the Illusion of Coaching. We want to believe that coaches are super-ultra-masterminds in control of events, and coaches do not mind encouraging that belief. But coaching is a secondary force in sports; the athletes themselves are always more important. TMQ's immutable Law of 10 Percent holds that good coaching can improve a team by 10 percent, bad coaching can subtract from performance by 10 percent -- but the rest will always be on the players themselves, their athletic ability and level of devotion, plus luck. If the players are no good or out of sync, it won't matter what plays are called; if the players are talented and dedicated, they will succeed no matter what the sideline signals in. Unless they have bad luck, which no one can control.
Based on my experiences in coaching I am going to disagree with this author. I have seen many coaching staffs not utilize their talent to the best of their ability. I have seen play calling that is costing their team the ability to be successful. Now this is more so at the high school level, it could be different for the NFL but coaching is not overrated. Coaching is like teaching, you have to teach them and correct the right technique. We play teams where are technique is better and we win. We have played teams that have a lot of athletes and beat them cause we have coached our kids better.

I would look at our team as a good example of what has happened this year. Injuries have occurred and yet cause of what we do as a staff we have adapted and now are hitting on all strides. Is coaching overrated? I say no, a lot has to be taken into account the work done during the week preparing our kids. But that is my opinion, what are your thoughts?

Is the kick good or not???

Saw this posting on the Coach Huey forums as I watched the video. I thought it would be interesting to hear what others thought? Is the kick good, or not? to me it looks like it was good. It bounced and was just inside the upright. You can see brown crossing in front of the yellow in the video. So you make the call was it good or not?

There is a blog out there run by Chris Brown which does a good job analyzing and explaining different plays, formations and offenses run in football today. One of his most recent entries is in regards to running inside and outside zone. Many fans don't completely understand the difference between them and instead of me having to explain it all I will let him explain to you. He regularly writes for and also the 5th down blog at the New York Times. His website is

Interesting question posed to me.

As we walked out for pre-game warm ups on Wednesday. I was approached by a man who was either a coach or an administrator from Lehi High School. He stopped me and asked, "Coach what is your position with the team?" I tell him I coach the offensive line for the Sophomore team. He then proceeds to ask me, "Can you tell me why you guys have been so dominant? Why is your program so good?"

I was taken aback at first; I would never have expected a question like that to be asked of me just a sophomore coach. I replied, "Continuity, there are some coaches that have been together for years." He then asked, "Besides X's and O's what else do you guys do?" I replied to him, "We teach good technique." He then thanked me for my time and walked back into the high school where Lehi's team had gathered. I understand why he asked me the question but I would never have expected it to come especially as we are just about to play. I just thought it was an interesting question that I wanted to share with you.
