Been a while since I’ve done this, and I have a ton of links. I’ll spread these out into a couple posts.
Bob Daive, of all people, with a useful piece on what is zone blocking.
Roger Rex’s plan for a longer regular season: just another example of being in bed with the deep pocketed owners? Per Roger Rex, it could happen as soon as 2010. I have a really bad feeling about the future of the NFL, starting in 2010.
Stuff that would never happen today: the Texas coaching staff taught Oklahoma the wishbone.
How the Redskins hired their defensive coordinator, from Mike Wise of the WaPo. Excellent reporting, assuming it’s, y’know, true.
Biz of Football interviewed Andrew Brandt about National Football Post and some of the financial issues in the NFL these days.
More hatred for Roger Rex: bad timing on a suspension.
Credit where credit is due: Music City Miracles scored an interview with Jeff Diamond.
Finally, since I can’t leave a competitor the last word, thoughts on the passing of Gene Upshaw from Andrew Brandt.
