2754829, I agree about the 4th down attempt in the KC game

The decisions seem like they're made in a vacuum without considering the harm failing causes.

It does feel like the riskiest decisions seem to have very harsh consequences watching in real-time. But, on the other hand, I don't know if that effect is magnified because we are so accustomed to watching coaches make conservative choices.

Maybe the issue is that he's so young and doesn't have a track record of success.

Harbaugh and even Tomlin and Belichek have embraced aggressive moves on 4th down as well. But either because of their experience or better instincts, their decisions seem to have less downside.

But overall, I think the Chargers have reason to feel good about their future.
