No Exceptions
By Dennis Ranahan

The Buffalo Bills are going to switch quarterbacks this week and opt for rookie Nathan Peterman over incumbent signal caller Tyrod Taylor for their visit to Los Angeles where they meet the Chargers at Stubhub Center. The announcement of the quarterback switch seems to indicate that Buffalo is beginning to look past this season and to the future, hoping that Peterman, a 2017 fifth round draft choice out of Pittsburgh, turns into their franchise quarterback while Taylor has not.

The move also forces the home standing Chargers to prepare for both QB’s and that calls for distinctly different game plans. Peterman is a pocket passer; Taylor a scrambler.

In the annals of quarterback changes the Bills have perhaps the most glaring mistake in the history of the game. It occurred in 1999. That season Head Coach Wade Phillips opened the season with co-starters, Rob Johnson and Doug Flutie.

Bad idea.

Once Flute decided the competition for the starting role by outplaying Johnson, he was the starter and led the Bills to the playoffs. With their postseason Wild Card position locked up, and Buffalo hosting an Indianapolis Colts team that was locked into first place in their division with second-year quarterback Peyton Manning leading the way, Phillips decided to rest Flutie on the final day of the regular season and start Johnson.

Banking Two Thoughts
About Money

By Dennis Ranahan

Now, I want to be really careful how I state this and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. So, let me state it clearly and then I respectfully ask you to read the whole article so you know what I mean.

It’s not about the money.

Okay, don’t overreact to that statement, but rather open up to the possibility of holding two thoughts at the same time; it’s not about the money and it’s all about the money.

Those two statements are not in opposition, but rather a key factor in turning sports wagering from an emotional rollercoaster to a steady-as-she-goes investment. Here’s why, the books prey on the emotions of gamblers who are quick to predictable actions that almost always leave them in the red. Why? Because gamblers wager more when they are ahead until they no longer are while thinking they are playing with “house” money. In an even worse scenario, some bet more when they are behind in an attempt to get even until they have lost much more than they ever thought they would risk.

Gamblers often base their wagers not on the strength of a point spread proposition, but rather on the success or failure of the previous result. In other words, past money wins or losses are determining current wager amounts.

That’s what I mean when I say it’s not about the money. A wager should never be about the money and only about the strength of the current point spread proposition. The amount wagered on a particular game should only be based on the value of that play … not what happened in any previous result.

When that method is followed the only thing that really matters can be realized, bottom line profits. Because, and never lose sight of this … it’s all about the money.
