@cgeneral19 but Rick Reilly told me that indigenous Americans do not find it offensive! Surely he must be right.

@SwamiSays @BrandonPurdy It is absurd how you think the Seahawks rely on the read-option. They ran it, at most, 3 plays a game. So NFL coordinators figure out the read-option. Big deal.
Wilson's rushing average was 5.2 yards per attempt—hardly the stuff of legends when it comes to QB runners. Their offense came from Marshawn Lynch's legs and Wilson's arm, not the other way around.
Did you watch the Seahawks last year? The last six games of the season, they may have had the best offense in the country.
Also, the read-option damages QBs that don't know how to avoid hits. Not only is Wilson built better to take damage than most QBs (he weighs as much as RGIII but is four inches shorter, as you like to point out), he also avoids damage by running out of bounds or sliding. Michael Vick did not.
Russell Wilson isn't new to anyone, but neither was Ben Roethlisberger, who had one of his best seasons (statistically) as a sophomore.

@PJD They do it fairly often. Always in the morning for an hour, and then a half-hour or more in pads.
And then they start hitting people.

Whoa, hey now. Nothing wrong with 10 page blog posts!

This is his schtick. I come here specifically for this. I'm not interested in stories about who he thought was overrated, but I'm extremely interested in what a "double snake hybrid yankee squibble route" is. It's a niche, and he very clearly fills this particular niche. I'm not going to ask him to change, because those other articles exist out there. ESPN magazine will carry a lot of those, for example ("Player X" columns), and you can find them on Bleacher Report and Grantland, too. That's not what this is, and that's why I came. If you don't want to buy the product he offers, don't buy it.

@jmscooby you're joking. Who does this information get to that shouldn't have it? This is something that every NFL team would have, especially if Gruden were still coaching - which he's not. I also assume this is significantly less detailed than almost every real NFL breakdown, so it's not really as useful and it doesn't give any "trade secrets" away.
Matt - I personally appreciate this a lot. It gives me a ton of insight into how defenses approach coaches and teams in game prep.
