Kenneth Arthur analyzes three teams (’96 Packers, ’99 Rams, & ’02 Buccaneers) that were well positioned to become NFL dynasties to see why each organization fell short of achieving that fame.
At the Daily Norseman, Arif Hasan analyzes Teddy Bridgewater’s development against his peers and other veterans using an analysis that combines statistics and film.
Sam Mellinger profiles Missouri football star Michael Keck, who died at 25 years old of an advanced case of CTE, so severe researchers had never seen it so advanced in such a young person.

Is ESPN trolling us by claiming a 186-yard, two-interception game by Charlie Batch is the greatest in QBR history? pic.twitter.com/ZEf32w976c

@MarkSchofield He's 6'1", 236. Built like a small 43 OLB. Can't imagine him being EDGE in the NFL sustainably. Rotationally maybe.

@MarkSchofield Not the most explosive, but very strong. Can bend and burst, disengages well, awesome closing speed.

@MarkSchofield Definition of JAG IMO. Not even sure he's an EDGE. Prob OBLB. Special teams guy. Not many special traits.

@MarkSchofield Better athlete than given credit for, not a huge repertoire of pass rush moves, may have to play OLB in a 4-3

@MarkSchofield not an edge guru, but I cover his team, and all of his teammates and coaches love him. Genuinely good kid
