"But for sustained success that has lasted almost 50 years, the best organization in the NFL — and perhaps all of the sports world — resides in the Steel City."
"Brett Favre told a hilarious story about not understanding some of the most basic concepts all QBs are expected to know"
It's a funny story about how he apparently wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed.
UPDATE: Link fixed now. Sorry.
Article advances, and supports with some statistics, and interesting thesis: older quarterbacks' performance tails off sharply at the end of the season.
But to make a really good case, the article needs at least to present at least three more types of evidence:
- We need a control sample. What happens to the performance of young quarterbacks at the end of seasons?
- Football is a team game and injuries are common. Maybe the problem with the performance of older QBs was actually a problem with their offensive lines. Or their running backs or their wide receivers.
- End-of-season here includes the playoffs. Playoff teams should be more motivated and more talented than the average team during the regular season. Does that contribute a bit to the poorer performance of older QBs?
This is correct and why even if played by drunks in a bar, it's not an interesting game.
I wouldn't have guessed.
Belichick just seems to be, as Yogi would have said, smarter than the average bear.

I don't know if this will work, but I do know the NCAA seems to be ripe for "disruption".
I was rooting for the Penguins in the Stanley Cup even before I read this fine piece by wunderkind Jake Guentzel. Now I'm rooting harder.
I will never forget the night I saw Phil Kessel turn into Hulk Hogan.
I was right on the bench to witness the whole thing.
Good question. But the NCAA still has the chance to get UNC right.
