That's right, folks: TWO historical draft yarns by yours truly on Sports on Earth this week. While researching the story on the Supplemental Draft in 1984, I began following some of the loose threads of George Allen's career. The result: the strange story of the 1970s Redskins and their habit of trading every draft choice they owned, and at least one that they didn't!

The best multiple first-round picks in NFL history, including the 1996 Ravens taking Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis and many, many more.

Actually, this is all about tuning out Manziel Mania and spooling up your own game tape. But I guess that technically makes it part of Manziel mania.

The Panthers receiving corps, Cowboys defensive line, and Chiefs offensive line take center stage as I try to solve the NFL's stickiest depleted-roster situations.

If the NFL playoffs had expanded to 14 games in 1990, back when it expanded to 12, we would have coped with lots of 8-8 playoff teams in the last 20+ years. Here are some of the worst, including the Schottenheimer Redskins and Bubby Brister Eagles.

Somehow the "ever" got dropped from the tagline, or else editorial did not thing it deserved it. By striving to create the worst possible mock draft, I get to discuss some free agent moves while shining a light on teams' strengths instead of weaknesses.

The gang at Monk Parrots have been working on this production for so long that I think I mentioned it in a Walkthrough. Bum Phillips: All American Opera is the labor of love of some intellectual folks of diverse tastes who wanted to tell a football story in a totally different way. Kindred spirits to the Football Outsiders gang, in many ways.

Film breakdowns and musings on Cortland Finnegan, Jason Avant, and others. My Patriots GM for a Day feature is also on Sports on Earth as of Monday, and it includes Cialis jokes.
