Jeff Miller was recently on the Dynasty Tradecast pod. Nathan Powell announced they were going to talk about dynasty philosophy and Jeff surprised him by basically saying “I don’t have a strategy. I just see what happens and react accordingly”. It was awesome.
I’ve said many times that the biggest enemy we have in this game is certainty. None of us can accurately predict what will happen even though we think we can because a few of our punts happen to come true each season. Someone told me the other day he was sure he’s a good scout because he accurately predicted OBJ would be a really good player. A tweet I saw today claimed quarterback scouting genius because the Tweeter predicted Dak Prescott would be good. A single swallow doesn’t make a summer.
Anyway, having been inspired by the conversation I thought I’d take a moment to put my own thoughts/philosophy/activity into words. Obviously this is not something I follow religiously but does explain how I generally go about things.
