Looks like a thoughtful and remarkable piece of work . The gist of this article is that coaches should go for it on 4th and short more often. I don't know pro football (I last watched a game in 1986) but the behavioral parallel to "taking a small profit" in the markets, i.e., the field goal rather than staying in for the full move, the touchdown, leaps off the page.

    I have long hoped a coach would come along that would challenge the conventional wisdom about “field position” in football. There are so many variables and expecations that should be factored into the decision. How long has your defense and their defense been on the field? Are you up or down? Is your line dominating? Etc.
