One of most rightly criticized stratagems in football is the Prevent defense.
The principle for those who don’t know football is pretty basic, with a large lead late in the game a team plays a loose defense guarding only against the big play and the sidelines. The idea it to “prevent” a mistake or a big play that could result in scoring although it tends to allow an awful lot of yardage.
What it also tends to do allow an opponent to build momentum and get back into a game. There is example after example of prevent defense leading to teams regaining confidence and roaring back in games that had looked safely in the bag.
This is pretty much the plan of the GOP as Sarah Palin describes it. The GOP is convinced their best plan is to simply let the president’s healthcare plan, economy and foreign policy implode on their own.
Sarah however notes that unlike a football game, allowing Barack Obama to be a weak president things like this happen:
With a referendum on secession looming in Crimea, Russia massed troops and armored vehicles in at least three regions along Ukraine’s eastern border on Thursday, alarming the interim Ukraine government about a possible invasion and significantly escalating tensions in the crisis between the Kremlin and the West.
If you don’t have a strong defense in football you give up yardage and point, if you don’t have a strong defense in America, real people all over the world suffer.
It’s Friday and while you’re reading this I’m either in NH covering the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference or on my way back home from today’s season.
As of when I worte this we were $272 shy of a full paycheck for myself and my writers this week.
This site, this coverage and these writers are not sustainable without your support. We need 11 Tip jar hitters at $25 to make payroll and mortgage.
If you think our work here is worthy of your support I ask you consider hitting DaTipJar below.
With 61 more $20 a month subscribers this site will be able to cover its bills for a full year.
I would ask that you do subscribe by hitting the button below. If your finances allow it, consider choosing Hat level or better. A subscription comes not only with exclusive commentary, but on a weekly basis you will have the opportunity to get direct access to me by phone to provide feedback or suggestions to make sure this site is worthy of your financial support and patronage.
For those that don’t know one of the two premiums I offer to subscribers & tip jar hitters is a weekly video commentary. Subscribers get that commentary every week and tip jar hitters get the commentary for the week they hit said tipjar.
I no longer put out a tease of that commentary on the blog, but yesterday when I was in Boston I recorded an extra commentary and offer it today as an example of what you will get if you choose to be a tip jar hitter or even better a subscriber at DaTechGuy Blog for as little as $2 a week
If you’re not in the mood for a long video here is the same point made in about 60 seconds
