    I, myself, have never liked surprise onside kicks. I've always interpreted it as a sign of lack of confidence in your special teams.

    Surprise on-side kicks are recovered by the kicking team almost 70% the time.

    Why do people view strategic decisions as having anything to do with confidence? And since when is a surprise onside kick not a function of your special teams?
