It's true the coaches aren't out there blocking, catching, running, etc. But out of all the sports, I think football is the only one where coaching really makes a difference in the game. In all the other sports, it's mostly about the skill of the players. In football, the coach's schemes, philosophy and game plan actually makes a difference. (At least in relation to other sports.) That's why it's such a great game. The coaches actually have this "chess game" going and it makes a very real difference on the field.
I like the chess comparison to football as I do feel that the head coach is the player. Just like chess, you have to put the players in position to make plays. Much of chess is the setup, and getting the pieces in position to go for the kill. If our HC cannot get the players in the correct position to make plays (i.e. proper scheme, gameplanning, etc.), their chance at success is dramatically reduced.
