The psychology of top-class football skills

OK. So this is not about American football, but I thought it was an interesting read nonetheless in regards to any top-class athletic skills.

In N.F.L., Parity Is Taking a Turn for the Worse

3

A NYTimes article discussing the unusual number of bad teams in the NFL this year (including the Bills of course). I thought this nugget was funny: "The Bills asked the Jets not to transcribe their conference calls with New York-area reporters. Either the Bills do not want negative quotes taken out of context, or they do not want their futility on record. (The team did not respond to requests for comment.)"

Bills coach Dick Jauron on the value of practicing in the rain

8

"The footing and how you compete -- how you backpedal, how you turn and plant dry, cutting -- you have to work on those things because it's not easy. I thought it was really a good day for us." Huh? Didn't the Bills specifically NOT practice in the cold and snow during the regular season in previous years? But rain is ok?

Don Banks Latest Mock: Good for a Laugh

11 WR Michael Crabtree Texas Tech So. 6-3 214 Why this will be the pick: Imagine the dramatic overnight improvement of the Bills' Trent Edwards-led passing game if Crabtree were to join Terrell Owens, Lee Evans and a second-year James Hardy? With Owens signing just a one-year deal in Buffalo, taking a young receiver with Crabtree's potential is entirely defensible. Why this doesn't make sense: This Bills coaching staff has to win now, and taking Crabtree might be more about 2010 and beyond than anything else. Buffalo is desperate for more pass rush, which points to Florida State's DE-OLB Everette Brown in this slot.

OT: Battle at Kruger

I'm going way off topic here, but I'm going temporally insane waiting for the next Bills game.  I thought it would be fun to find some sort of wild-life video about buffalo versus jaguars or some...
