Best BR writer. Keep up the good work!
Hey Matt, can you do an article on why it's so difficult for a college spread QB to transition to the NFL? Besides terminology, being able to stand over the line to see the defense, etc what else is key to making the transition? Is the transition the same for a college QB in a pro style offense? Why is it so difficult for them to learn how to take a snap from under center? Thanks, your stuff is great!
Can you please stop turning off the comments? That would be greattt
Matt, I don't like the articles you write... I *LOVE* them! You are the best writer here and perhaps the main reason I read stuff on BR! Thank you and keep up the great work!
I am a Lions' fan. I have been cursed into this fanhood by birth, but for some crazy reason I take pride in being a Detroit Lions' fan. I bleed honolulu blue and silver. I respect your draft analyis and Miller's the most. I also love your articles that explain schemes, especially coverages. I am wondering is there any chance than Danny Shelton could fall to my beloved Leos at pick 23 ?

Please do not quote Mike Freeman in any more of your articles. Your article about Richie Incognito was relatively fair and well written. The only down moment for me was when you quoted Mike Freeman, head character assassin for CNN. That jerk is working to build his career by attacking everyone and everything. Including him brought the quality of an otherwise well written article down to the basement. Instead of quoting him, do what most other people do, ignore him. You are better than him, so do not let him drag you down.
Keep up the great work.
Please continue this great work and I look forward to more of your awesome blog posts.
