I've been reading the Jon Bois series Breaking Madden for a while now. I suppose this should go in the links of the day thread, but there is simply too much awesome in these articles to share the limelight.
Some of you, I'm sure are familiar with the series. For those not, you will spend the next 2 hours pouring over every detail. I'm not sure if everyone has my taste in comedy, but this stuff is ridiculously funny to me.
Grantland just published an awesome article about Pete Carroll and how he's used and adapted the 4-3 Under defense over the years. And, more specifically, how the hybrid versions of the scheme he's using with the Seahawks today have helped them adapt to the modern offenses and be as dominant as they have.
Note: It's a somewhat lengthy article, so save it for when you have a bit of time.
EDIT: Chris Brown of Smart Football wrote the article.
Last year at TTB, I looked at the history of #1 rated running backs. This year, with Jabrill Peppers committed to Michigan, I looked at the #1 rated cornerbacks from 2002-2013 and how their college and pro careers have gone.
Feel free to discuss.
Obviously a parody of American football in general, but it is well worth a watch.
