Before I started this blog, I'd spent about 18 years writing in the computer industry. A lot of that writing was centered around the taking very complex subjects and breaking them down so that lay people (non-technical) could understand what I was trying to say.
It took effort but that effort had to be made if I wanted my readers to understand what I was saying.
Given that, here's what we get from head coach Bill Callahan today:
Question: What kind of adjustments could you have made?
Callahan: Oh, I think it's probably too technical for you, but I think in the broad spectrum of adjustments, just playing the quarterback a little bit better on the zone read in terms of the front assignments... I don't want to get into coachspeak, but there were a lot of things in terms of front adjustments that you have to deal with. I think our coaches were dealing with that to the best of their ability.
- You're too stupid to understand.
- I'm not going to bother simplifying it for you because that would take effort.
- You're not worth the effort it would take.
- What's this? I seem to have sat on a fork!
Why didn't he just come right out and say what he was thinking? "We must have the dumbest fans in America."
