Great games, not mistakes


Sloppy turnover prone football will put viewers on the edge of their seat, leave the games outcome totally in the air, and send fans blood pressure through the roof, but it's a well executed game that is most enjoyable. A game turned on outstanding plays is more satisfying than one decided by unforced errors and the random bounces of loose balls.

A great game is decided by which team consistently makes the plays they need, not by where a fumble happens to occur and who happens to fall on it. Some mistakes and random bounces are always a part of the game and make it obvious that the game can turn at any minute, but after a point it's just poorly played football.
