You must not be watching many games.
Teams are getting stuffed at the goal line left right and center. Always have. Even 2-3 plays in a row. Going straight up the gut there against a stacked D with everybody on the line is straight up stupid. On a 55yd wide field with 20yd deep endzones any of the OTHER options are imminently preferable. Smart teams generally figuring this out."
Interesting. Because I could swear on most short yardage plays, teams send in their "heavy packages" to do what you say is "stupid". Or maybe you and I aren't watching the same things?
