Norse Code Podcast Episode 412: An Indictment

Arif and James are back to discuss what happened in Green Bay on Sunday night. We go over the play calling, the desire to run the ball down 20 at the half, and moving Bradbury to tight end. Also why it made more sense to start Mannion over Mond this game.

Episode Notes:

  • Here’s the Defector piece on nepotism in coaching. There’s a lot of Vikings-specific stuff in it
  • There are a lot of studies on NFL teams and drafting, and in particular, how teams are not consistently good at it. This one from 2016 does a good job outlining the basic premise while this piece in Football Outsiders, which found Minnesota to be the second-best team at drafting in the five-year period between 2015 and 2019, ultimately concludes that drafting is random. The Washington Post also explored this in 2020, with the same conclusion
  • And knowing that, here’s an ultimately useless list of top GM candidates
