    In addition to the article linked above, on NFL.com Michael Silver has a great article on the QB position. Again, sorry I can't link it.

    I don't actually watch enough NFL (cuz sux), so I guess I haven't really noticed a general decline in quality. Just notice that the Bears blow in every conceivable way. Are there any metrics actually backing this up or just a general observation that the play seems to be shittier?

    I can't read those at work either, but perhaps the problem is too much parity. Same thing with MLB. Americans love watching sustained dominance fueled by squash matches.

    I don't know why pro sports leagues thought that was a good policy. Must've been the loser owners.

    Probably butt hurt owners. Not just Americans, European soccer leagues are dominated by most championships going to only 3-4 teams. Also no salary caps.

    The basic premise of the article is that the league is getting younger, and that is negatively impacting the game because players just out of college aren't getting taught proper techniques. As an example, all too often safeties in the NCAA are converted linebackers. Which is great when defending against the run, and college offenses that maybe don't throw the ball downfield as much. Once they get to the NFL, these safeties have barely any type of coverage skills so that has be taught, because they've never been asked to do that.

    I was able to read the article, just wondering if there are actual statistics that show the game is shittier with the younger players or is it just observation.

    Seems to be a pretty subjective "footbally" judgement on the younger players. It actually seems to me that based on the people they interviewed, you might see the NFL push to keep players in college all four years.

    Personally, I'd like to see an academy system like European futbol.

    That S argument doesn't make a lot of sense. Back in the "good old days of quality NFL play," most college teams ran like 85% of the time and never used spread formations. The SS often was an extra LB assigned man coverage against blocking TE. How much coverage experience were they getting then?

    DB in general seems to be a much deeper position now because college coaches put great athletes there who would've been WR or option QBs and shit back in the day.

    I've had him rostered in a league in place of a kicker for a few weeks. Never thought he would actually walk away for good like that.

    He could definitely be traded since Seattle would have to juggle money around to make him fit on their team. Teams like NE, Washington and Miami would love to have him.
