Daily Piece about Friendly Competition between Robinson and Kovacs

The Daily has a fun piece about a competition between Denard Robinson  and Jordan Kovacs, with the winner getting a steak dinner.  The competition involves preparing for the NFL draft.

Denard definitely looks more comfortble catching the ball now than he did during senior bowl practices, but the rest of this is just guys running around and lifting things to my untrained eye. I mean are we supposed to be hand timing these at home? Hopefully people who know about stuff will explain what's happening in the comments.

OT: Designing a Complete Passing System

OT: Designing a Complete Passing System

Submitted by Eye of the Tiger on March 13th, 2013 at 1:31 PM

There's an excerpt from Dan Gonzales' book "Recoded and Reloaded" up at Smart Football. Basically talks about what any passing system (whether West Coast, Air Raid, Run n' Shoot, etc.) needs to do in order to be successful. He has 15 rules in total, and there are lots of examples given of each. 

Quite an interesting read, I thought.
