Well, good news from Canton, as the NFL announced this year's Hall of Fame class. Besides Dan Marino and Steve Young, they elected both senior committee nominees. We would like to think that maybe one Hall of Fame voter occasionally reads our site or The New Republic and was persuaded by Michael David Smith's articles on Fritz Pollard. It's nice to see Benny Friedman, the NFL's first great quarterback, elected as well. Now, guys, how about letting those three quarterbacks have some offensive linemen next year?
Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
