Norse Code Podcast Episode 69: Dirty Jokes, the New Schedule, Tradrian Peterson and Golden Anniversaries

New, comment

The NFL's push for the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl draws an unwarranted amount of attention, both from the NFL itself and us. We also talk the new schedule, the draft and obviously Adrian Peterson. A lot of mailbag questions and tangents on Chip Kelly, too.

We go off on a lot of tangents and fully enjoy our three-man episode setup, and include a healthy football discussion to boot. Chip Kelly and the NFL's self-promotion highlight our talks, but there's a lot going on.

Episode Notes:

  • One of my favorite projects of the year is the consensus big board produced at Vikings Territory. We have a preview of the top 250 prospects, and will get more information in another post shortly afterwards. This is the consensus of all the draft experts you can find, and see a comprehensive list of the top players, by agreement.
  • The first thing that comes up when discussing the schedule is the placement of the bye week. There's some soft evidence which indicates that it either doesn't matter or that earlier is better, courtesy of Bill Barnwell at Grantland.
  • There are a lot of good draft stories to take a look at, and one of my favorite players was recently profiled by MMQB. Check out Division III Ali Marpet from Hobart College.
  • We mentioned the Vikings' spot in the Bleacher Report 2014 draft power rankings. You can take a look here.
