10 pages on McDermott's excessive clapping (and it is really stupid the amount he does) and a great article on the issue everyone has with TT that is an epidemic in the NFL and one response?  

 

Anyone else read it and have some comments/insight?

Revise the title to indicate what the article is about, maybe? It is a very good article, I just have nothing to add to the discussion.

It's a complicated problem. On the one hand, he's saying that the league rewards bad QBs who play conservatively, but he also acknowledges that there are only a handful of really good QBs. If the teams without elite QBs play more aggressively, I think you'll see a lot more blowout games, especially when those teams face one of the greats.

Not a bad article but I think that statistics hide the fact that offensive innovation and defensive success are like waves...some new "system"...like the K-Gun  comes along and has some success until coaches figure out a way to defend it. I think what you are seeing is the success of defenses against the current "systems". Bigger, faster defenders are also a factor. The "Refrigerator" Perry was an oddity at 300 lbs 30 years ago, now he would be an average sized lineman.

If it doesn't agree with the averages person beliefs to begin with they'll pretend it doesn't exist in order to not change their kind

The topic title needs some TLC... The topic starter can edit the topic title line to make it more appropriate.

Thank you.

Normally I wouldn't look at The Ringer. It's run by Boston writers, FYI. This one is ok.
