Link for 9/21/09
Thanks to loyal reader Cochil for this link. Even though she is an Eagles fan (ie. the team that can’t find the endzone in a critical game even if you gave them a map and a GPS) it is still a good article. On second thought, considering my Pats stunk it up this weekend and didn’t score a TD, maybe I should hold-off trash talking other teams. Oh well.
I do enjoy when really really smart people spend their brain power on developing scientific ways to analyze sports. However, this “Constructal Law” theory actually could play a significant role in how teams draft and develop players. Makes you wonder if a player like William “Refrigerator” Perry (big with no speed) could survive in today’s NFL. Just some food for thought on a Monday morning.
