Truly being aggressive would be to line up with your offense and go for it on 4th and short. And really, were talking about Fox here, arguably the most conservative head coach in the league today. This is the guy that loves to punt no matter how dire the situation. If this is his notion of being aggressive I can see why he's usually conservative. Aggressive and stupid are two very different things.
