Norv Turner, the Chinese Room and Israeli Prisons


What effect do coaches, computer science and cognitive theory have on player performance? About as much as you would think (which is to say a lot). Needless to say, this is a long one. Grab a...

Norse Code Podcast #024: The Mike Zimmer Episode


All Mike Zimmer all the time! By all the time, I mean for the duration of the podcast.

Chris Cook Takes Your Questions on Twitter


The oft-maligned and easily questioned Chris Cook decided it would be a good idea to answer fan questions on twitter. The responses are surprisingly candid.

Souhan Writes the Worst Column on Vikings Beat


I haven't read every Vikings piece in years, nor do I regularly peruse the works of Jim Souhan, Sid Hartman or Patrick Reusse, but I saw this hit my feed and had to react. Maybe it's his worst....

Coaching Search: Your Primer On Possible HCs


The Vikings did what everyone expected them to when they let go of Leslie Frazier. The next job of Zygi and Mark Wilf, along with Rick Spielman, is to hire the next head coach. Who's reasonably...

Your Friday Open Thread


Fearless Leader couldn't post the open thread, so CCNorseman volunteered to do it. Because he's the new guy, he couldn't manage do it either. In the spirit of holiday absentia, we're posting this...

Using the All-22 from the Green Bay Packers game, I decided to create a poster of every snap Greg Jennings took on passing plays that weren't predetermined reads or screens.

Podcast #020: Packers Review, Mailbag


In this episode of Norse Code, we discuss the Packers game, how 4th downs change in overtime and the most genius move in coaching history (by Leslie Frazier). We also answer some questions!

Podcast #019: Seattle Review, Green Bay Preview

Thanks for all the fish
