Let this XP serve as a notice that Matt Bowen is doing an outstanding job at Bleacher Report on this NFL 101 series. He's breaking down common routes and coverage concepts while also delving into keys.

This hit the outtakes of my Factors post, but there was one particular Andre Johnson v. Richard Sherman route that was head-and-shoulders above anything else I'd seen while charting wideouts. Two masters of their craft. Brett Kollman at Battle Red Blog took it upon himself to look at it.

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!
