Cool article.  Amazing recall by Brees.

Very cool! I love this kind of sports reporting.

I'm pretty impressed with Brees recall, my guess is that's years and years of film study leading to a very visual memory.

Look, it doesn't replace the 2009 NFC Championship game because the Vikes couldn't seal the deal.

Still...

An excellent, accessible (if unintended) example of the positive power of jargon. Neat article. The downsides are more commonly understood, so it's nice to see the benefits made so clear.

Also, a great example of expertise in action - Brees's recall seems impressive, but anyone who does something for a living 60-100 hrs/wk will have a similar ability w.r.t. their profession that will astound those of us outside of it ... it's just that the NFL is accessible and relatable in a way that, say, oncology isn't.

Cool article, Subby. Thanks!

Nothing a good as dumping Sam Bradford on a team for a first round pick and using that pick for a DE who would cause a strip sack in the NFC Championship Game against the same team which led to a blowout.

1. I'd still have done that trade. 10 times out of 10. Without Sam that first season would have been worse then 8-8. It's not his fault that by week 9 we were STARTING practice squad Jaguars on the O-Line and paying Jake Long money to play football when he had a rubber band and some super glue for an ACL at this point. Our running game literally averaged something like 3.1 yards per carry. Our defense shiat itself when it mattered a few times THAT year too. Sam played all 16 games that year and got DESTROYED. It was a good trade that didn't work out because of everyone BUT Sam.

2. While the sack/fumble, the defense was most certainly the problem that day. We couldn't get any pressure because your O-Line was just that good, which exposed the back 7 in a way that no one else has done that ISN'T named Aaron Rodgers.  All I hope is that it was typical Viking choking in pressure situations and not something the rest of the league can figure out as easily.

I remember - said this a million times - Trent Dilfer used to bug the shiat out of me on ESPN.  he'd break down a play and be like, "the problem here is, the QB musta thought it was Bingo Slam 85 Right Vegas Check-with-me, but the WR ran a 7 route to the skinny post.  THE QB *HAS* TO KNOW TO AUDIBLE TO COWBOY ROCKET CHARLIE 53!  That's inexcusable in the NASHNULLFOOBAGLEEG!!!!

Yeah trent....I'm quite positive that not every team uses the same playcall string.  for the longest time he'd do that shiat and i'd be like STAHP.  he'd be jacking off with this long ass strings breaking down plays from like, 8 different teams.  it was so stupid.  drove me crazy.  just say they got their routes mixed up.

aside from ESPN, he had a weekly segment with the local phoenix radio team.  they'd ask him about the Cardinals game, and he'd do that shiat.  "that TD pass, that was what we'd call a Diamond Raider 88 Bingo 94 Trips, and Kurt saw Larry on the 9 route, jenkins on a curl, and smith on a slant 5.  Kurt wisely looked of the safety and blah blah blah......and then that pic, Orlowski called Turbo Z Joker Deuce 64, but the Honey Badger read that for the pick 6...."  made me want to drive off the godamn road.

gyah!  i can't believe how just thinking about that annoys the fark out of me.  drove me batty.  ha.  godammit i hated when he'd do that. he was just jacking off.  just say "he went long, he ran a post, he ran a curl, he was open."  all this godamn raider raider bingo delta 88 joker 'philly special' boba fett covfefe covfefe shmoopy shmoop nonsense is just so farking tiring.  TIRING.

I went to bingo tonight with my elderly mother, and I showed This Thread to couple of the old boys who always show up, they're great Sports guys... They're both laughing their asses off at your post right now. Thanks a lot Ricky, much appreciated.

1. I think you're correct, however, I do think the Bradford trade was lopsided, but it was purposefully lopsided. The Vikings knew they had lightning in a bottle, and needed something at QB after Bridgewater was lost for the season. I don't think they had much choice in who was available. I'd be interested to see how many calls were made around the league before they got to Bradford.

2. The strip/fumble is 'whatever'. I hate it when people say 'the traded draft position turned out to be Samuel Whosadong, who turned into the best 5th round punter since the merger.' The draft is such a crap shoot, and it's impossible to say who the Vikings would have drafted in that slot.
