Don't draft a sub-290 lb DT!!!

Don't use a Top 10 pick on a RB!!!

Don't trade up and use a top draft pick on an "air raid" QB!!!

Don't sign a 35 year old OT to a multi-year deal!!!

Don't hire a 31 year old head coach!!!

Seems like the conventional wisdom is not always so wise. I'm glad our team is willing to trust its instincts and go outside the box. The road less traveled seems to be making all the difference.

I started a thread like this last year. So much conventional wisdom is dead or dying, it's pretty amazing. Some of it might be cyclical but a lot of it isn't and a lot of CW was never right to begin with...

Don't copy Elvis' thread themes!

(Oops! Sorry. 8-) )

I bet your thread starting post didn't quote Eric Cartman and Robert Frost like mine did, though! :D

don't draft an air raid qb.
don't expect qb success in the first year of a new system.
don't run the same personnel groups, mix it up.
don't bring in free agents with baggage, they're a cancer.

that's the livin' truth.

in fact i posted about this years ago, nfl conventional wisdom nonsense, and included a link to great article that discussed the topic, it pointed out that a big problem in the nfl was that nfl head coaches were afraid to take chances and try new approaches out of fear of being fired if it didn't work, that it was just much safer to do things as they've always been done even if it wasn't successful, which led to the regurgitation of the same stuff that has been around for decades... it's weird tho, as successful as mcvay has been you know there are legions just waiting for him to fail, waiting for the chance to say "aha, of course he failed, there's a reason teams have done x, y and z forever!"... and i think we saw that with martz.

More for AvengerRam's OP List of "Don'ts":

Don't hire a Defensive Co-Ordinator who was born when jet propulsion was still a Military Secret!

...seriously, when Wade Phillips was born, in June 1947,
Dwight D. Eisenhower was still in Europe wearing a US Army uniform!!! :o
If Ike were still alive today, he'd be turning 129 this October!! :shock2:

When Wade Phillips was born, the Dead Sea, was only sick! :lol2:

Don’t try and compete with IBM, they own the PC space
Don’t sell Nextel, your technology isn’t archaic
Don’t worry about what happened to Nextel BlackBerry, you own the mobile email space
Don’t try to become an online retailer Amazon, Kmart, Sears and JCPenny are too big
