    So, they tend to have Dogs, have American Flags, and like hats.

    Are those the three?

    So the big "secret" is to have more than 1 reliable play-maker. Great work sbnation, you've cracked the mystery of fooseball.

    Yes, the Anti-Nuss offense. Make the defense stress not the QB.

    I'm guessing having the gators of recent years as your opposing defense has to help your percentages

    How about an OL that doesn't get Gassed.
    Receivers who run good routes
    And a QB that is at least decent at reading a defense. (If he can run aka Tim Tebow or move in the pocket aka Drew Brees - ALL the better)

    #1 key to being successful on 3rd and long?

    Don’t find yourself in that situation too often.

    It’s that simple.
