What can't people understand about "going deep"? I mean, just go deep, and I'll hit you.

I play a lot of pickup football. I'm well known throughout my neighborhood. Probably a few neighborhoods over too. I like to throw the ball deep down the field. Why? Because I can.

Now, if I have a stable of receivers that will actually run downfield and catch the ball, then all is forgiven. I'll take back my previous claim. But I'm telling you, it just isn't like that.

I don't know if these guys are lazy, or whether they're just skeptical that by going deep, we put ourselves in the best possible position to succeed.

I won't go so far as to say running the ball or throwing short hitch patterns to accumulate yards is for pussies. But I can't think of another way to play this game than by implementing the vertical passing attack.

I just wish these guys would go deep. That's all I'm saying.

12/30/2004 scoop: Hey author, you have to admit a good running game keeps the defense honest allowing you to go deep more frequently. When you have those safties creeping up to protect against the run, you can go deep all day and as much as you want.
12/30/2004 qualcomm: you know who's just a great ball player? art monk. he's all about showing up for work and doing his job. you don't see him celebrating every time he makes a reception. he's just a tough player. not a big guy, though.
12/30/2004 scoop: Fucking A! Art Monk.
12/30/2004 The Rid (4): I liked this one.
12/30/2004 anonymous: Art Monk is no Charlie Joiner.
12/30/2004 anonymous: Scoop, a good running game does keep the defense honest. But going deep every single time seems to do the trick as well. "This guy can't be going deep again, can he?" Oh yes, he can.
12/30/2004 Litcube (5): Thank you for keeping this short. Well done. I love you.
12/30/2004 anonymous: You're welcome.
12/30/2004 Litcube: Do you have anything else to say to me author?
12/30/2004 qualcomm (4): i would have fived this if you hadn't mentioned football so explicitly.
12/30/2004 anonymous: What if I had made an Art Monk reference?
12/30/2004 anonymous: Litcube, thank you for your high rating.
12/30/2004 Dylan Danko (3): I would have liked this more had it been about rugby.
12/30/2004 Litcube: I don't give a fuck about the rating, Author. It's become apparent, however, that you don't reciprocate my love for you.
12/30/2004 TREE: I still love you Litcube.
12/30/2004 Litcube:
12/30/2004 TREE: It is a pleasure to please you Litcube. However in the interest of maintaining my sanity please do not use emoticons again. They tend to make my eyeballs bleed and cause a loud roaring sound in my head.
12/30/2004 TheBuyer (5): whoa, remember first rule of Homo Club, fellas.
12/30/2004 TREE: Your club has rules?
12/30/2004 anonymous: Litcube: had I the ability and know-how to produce such wonderful images, I would do so. The love is not unrequited.
12/30/2004 scoop: But author, won't a steady diet of deep balls result in a strategic loss in the essentail battle for field position?
12/30/2004 Streifenbeuteldachs (2): Don't see the value in this one.
