We generally want the ball. We like to set the tone and score first.

Always defer.

Sometimes we are on KOR at that start of each half.  😉

But that's not the reason. D is the better choice for us because they are always ready to play fast. The O seems to lag for a series or two....this vs the better teams. Vs the poor teams I wouldn't think it matters.

So we like the field position early.

What is beautiful, lives forever.

Why would you choose to Kick? Just curious if anyone actually does this.....I mean I got a lot of confidence in my D but dang!

I like the philosophy of "we always want the ball".  If they are going to give us the ball, we'll take it.  If we have to kick, we're going to do whatever we can to get the ball back.  I think setting the tone right from the jump is clutch.  Also at the youth level, you're going to often have players on both sides of the ball...why not wear out their defense a bit so that when their offense gets out on the field, they are already tuckered out.

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

Well for some reason I couldn't vote...but, I will chime in anyway...

It depends...if it is an opponent we know we can control defensively, we will defer and then onside kick, that way getting the ball at the beginning of both halves (assuming we recover)...

If I am not 100% confident we will get them 4 (or less) and out, we want the ball.

None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

We defer every time. I like setting the tone on defense. And like getting the ball to start the 2nd half.

I have ALWAYS been a "we want the ball team."  But this year my defense is STOUT!  VERY STOUT!  We set the tone with our defense.  First year this has ever happened.  So we defer.

So it's a season to season decision.

When the Chicago bears were making their run to the Superbowl, they had a game where they elected to kick.  This was before the NFL voted to allow the "defer" option.  They won the game, but I still think it was a dumb call.  More of a statement than anything else.

Doesn't really matter.  The whole "we want to make a statement on offense" thing is kind of BS.  What happens if you don't score?  What happens if you fumble the first play?  What message are you sending then?

Same w/ D.  What happens if they score on the first play?  What message is sent now?  That your D sucks? 

Or do we only send messages when things go right?  You want to send a message?  Whether it's kickoff or kick return, knock the sh!7 out of every person in a different color jersey.  Thats how you send a message.  All that other stuff is just mumbo jumbo IMO.

It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!

Everyone has a plan til they get hit in the mouth. 

My plan is to hit people in the mouth.  All messages sent by my team can be derived from such.
