Interesting article about QBs from NFL.com

I thought that  this article by Michael Lombardi was a great read, so I thought I'd share. A few things that impressed me: 1. He says that a QB's throwing motion is no big deal.  Every QB has a...

Which NFL QB would you like to see wearing Viking purple in 2011?

Although the Vikes may have a top ten draft pick in the offseason, it will not necessarily be high enough to draft a franchise QB.  Assuming that nobody falls to them and no teams are offering a...

A few thoughts on recently fired coaches
