In fact, Franklin said, if he sees a bad play forming, say, the defense loaded up on the side he wants to run it, he calls the play anyway. Just rip the bandage off quickly and get it over with. Why?

“Well, because my belief is eventually, the tempo will win,” Franklin said. “It may not win early but eventually it’s going to win. Because eventually, what’s going to happen is one, they’re not going to get lined up properly. Two is that they’re not even going to get their hands on the ground sometime before we run a play. If that means that I have to have three or four really bad plays in a game, that’s OK.

“If you think about it, how many times do you have an extremely complicated NFL offense that has six shifts and motions before the snap, with these geniuses, and they run it and they lose two yards. I could have done the same thing in a lot less time. I’ve always thought I’m as smart as them. I’ll just lose it faster.”
