Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Spring_2018 - 9

Well, if you are completely confused by Philly Special, how
do you think the Patriot's defense felt? The play was so risky and
so complex it was stunning to see it called in such a high pressure
situation. It will go down as one of the greatest play calls in Super
Bowl history.
Trust.
To pull off such a play, Coach Pederson had to trust that his
center would snap the ball perfectly to the running back, he would
have to trust that the running back would pitch the ball back to
the sprinting Tight End at the right time, he would have to trust
that Tight End would not only catch the pitch but then throw the
ball accurately to the player who does not even get paid to catch
the football! Had the ball been dropped, had a linemen missed his
assignment, had the center botched the snap, the play could not have
been executed...but Doug Pederson might have.
On the players' part, they had to trust in Coach Pederson's play
call. There were plenty of talking heads, before, during (see Chris
Collingsworth), and after, that second-guessed the choice to go for it
on fourth down. For a player, that's not just trust but faith in their
coach. Could you imagine if, in the huddle, some player said,
"Coach has lost it! I'm calling the plays now. Let's run this...."??
Teamwork.
Say what you will about the negatives of football, the one point
I always love about the game is that a player can not excel without
his teammates performing their individual assignments to perfection.
In football you have to rely on and support your teammate's
achievements. So many of our other sports can focus on the talent of
a single individual to succeed, but not football, and certainly not life.

intrusions, it's enough to feel like every call you make is a "Fourth
down Play." It also will no doubt wear down on a physician's trust
in colleagues and the system as a whole.

The Philly Special in Practice.

That is why it is crucial for all those in the medical field to
recognize each other's talents, knowledge, and expertise and to
cohesively act on the interest of the patient. If the Philly Special has
taught us anything (...besides how great the Eagles are), it is that
no matter how big the venue, how formidable the opponent, when
you make the tough call you need to have the right people on the
same page to get the job done. Collaboration is essential to patient
care. Administration, physicians, nurses, and office staff all need to
share the same vision and goals if we want to see improvements in
health care. This is something that has been long advocated by our
Medical Society.

In medicine, there is so little room for error that every patient
is a metaphorical "Super Bowl." Moreover, the natural anxieties
one faces in the complexity of the medical profession can be
overwhelming. With the threats of potential litigation, turbulence
of every-changing in-house policies and constant looming political

I take great pride in saying that BCMS helps create the
opportunity for better teamwork and dialogue. And perhaps most
importantly we foster collaboration and championed for the best
practices in patient care. So when it is fourth and goal, you can
make the call with confidence.

In football there is an equality in striving for a shared goal. There
are eleven men on the field and countless coaches on the sidelines
that have studied, practiced, and mastered each play. All of them
have a different skill set, background, and outlook but when the
whistle blows each of them is forced to focus on working cohesively
on the called play. I have watched the highlights of the "Philly
Special" at least a hundred times, and what I love most about it was
that it was flawlessly done and everyone shared in the celebrating.
