TIME & SCORE PARAMETERS

The following is a list of the proposed one-character codes for the time & score column in advanced gameplans. A blank in the column would mean "any".

CODE MEANING POSSIBLE REFINEMENTS
1 1st Quarter
2 2nd Quarter
3 3rd Quarter
4 4th Quarter
O Overtime (5th Quartter)
H Hurry Up Time, Losing
F Hurry Up Time, Field Goal to win or tie Maybe two different codes
W Hurry Up Time, Winning Maybe separate codes for leads of one score and more
T Two Minute Warning (Game) Losing
M Two Minute Warning (Half) Losing Or maybe any score
C Change Up, 2nd Half, Losing by more than 7 Maybe an option for a deficit of less than one score
D Change Down, 2nd Half, Lead by more than 7 Maybe an option for a lead of less than one score
P Passing (more than a set number of net passing yards)
Q Quarterback (more than a set number of sacks & hurries)
R Rushing (more than a set number of rushing yards)
A First possession, 1st half
B First possession, 2nd half

Multiple selections would mean the situation applies in either/any of the conditions (eg. "12" means "1 or 2", which is to say all through the 1st and 2nd quarters). It's tempting to have two columns, so that conditions could be applied together (eg. "34" and "R" to mean if it's the second half with good running stats). Or maybe the stats-based parameters should have time/score conditions as a matter of course.

The set numbers of rushing yards, passing yards, and sacks might be fixed values, or values set by the coaches, either totals or per-quarter, or per-play or some combination of those. For the score elements we need to decide (or let the coaches decide) whether a touchdown lead is 7 points or 8 points. For leads of more than two scores I don't think we really care, although maybe if you're down by a touchdown and a field goal there's an argument for sometimes being conservative and accepting to the three points.
