"To better illustrate the situation, he [FDR] reverted to a sports analogy. He likened himself to the quarterback of a football team who ‘has a general plan of game in mind.’ He knew what his first play was going to be but could not tell you the play after that ‘until the next play is run off. If the play makes ten yards, the succeeding play will be different from what it would have been if they had been thrown for a loss."
