setup plays Is it sim to keep calling a play the game has "determined" is setup? So I am clear by set up I am saying the play says set up complete with the triangle/arrow on it. I am asking because I was playing a game where the play was setup for 3 quarters continually. This was after I called the play and everything. I had never seen the play still being in setup after it was called and ran. From my experience with setup plays this is what I know: Setup plays are usually play action plays. Setup plays are because of success with running plays. The set up play in question was a play action play. It was setup after the 3rd time on the drive I had run with success a running play. I had run on that drive at least 5 times and thrown 1 time. The first time I called the setup play I believe it was a TD. The play was still considered setup though. Never saw that before. So I called it again thinking it would not be setup after that. Still was setup. I think when I stopped calling it, I had called it 20-25 times in a row. I know that number would not be sim. I kept calling it because I wanted to see if the play would not be setup after a while. When I stopped calling it it still was setup in the playbook. When I kept calling the play it was not successful every time. I threw some incompletions, I was sacked 2-3 times, also threw an int. I think it was completed maybe 55% of time, Half to 2/3 of those completions 5 yards or less.
