A Good Analogy

My company had a major reorganization last week, which apparently is a yearly event (so I have been told since I have only been engaged with my company for only ten months). When asked why this happens every year, this is what the CEO had to say:
Organizing a company's structure is like calling a play in football. You look at the situation on the field, look at your bench, and call out a formation and play depending on the circumstances. And when the situation changes you swap out people, change formation, and call a different play.

I liked this analogy. I am just trying to figure out what "position" best relates to my position in sales. Wide receiver?
