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!
A look at fourth-down decision making in 2014 highlights Sean Payton, Marc Trestman, and... wait, this can't be right... Jim Caldwell? Plus: Chip Kelly may be less aggressive than you think he is.
