Sensationalist headline for sensationalism's sake. This really isn't related to the Niners, but this was a pretty interesting little article at Grantland.
Cal professor David Romer concluded that teams should not punt when facing fourth-and-4 or less; NFL stats analyst Brian Burke has detailed the need to rethink fourth-down decision-making; Football Outsiders has conflated punts with turnovers. You've even read about it on this site. Most fans and analysts who are willing to accept that change is a fundamental part of life have embraced the idea that automatically punting on fourth down doesn't make sense.
Mostly just food for thought and discussion. What do you think about this philosophy in regards to the NFL?
