Have you ever tried squeezing in a next-to-the-last play, before a field goal kick, and time expired before you could kick? Or have you tried kicking and missed, from too far away, when you had time to get closer? Squeezing in a next-to-the-last play, while protecting time for a last play, is one of a football coachs most difficult tasks and the one with the most potential for criticism. You need a system for approaching a moving clock, multiple variables, necessary barriers, ever-changing relativities, and demanded decisions. You need a system with structures, reference points, procedures, and warnings. You need a system for thinking ahead. The Complete Handbook of Clock Management describes such a system in detail. Topics covered include: Introducing the challenge, figuring time, playing fast, assembling weapons, using the intentional incomplete pass, the spike, using time-outs, distinguishing between procedures and decisions, clarifying objectives, squeezing in next-to-the-last plays, using up excess time before scoring, letting your opponent score a TD, using clock offense in a wind, deciding on kicking a FG or going for a TD, deciding on punting or going for a first down, deciding on an extra point in final seconds, trying for two points, taking a safety, keeping the clock moving, preparing the quarterback, practicing, playing clock defense, and sustaining progress.
