    Yeah GREAT article.

    Its been awhile since something with that much substance has been posted on here.
    Gives you some insight into the high importance of continuity in the NFL.
    Thanks KJ.

    Now that was a worth while reading.
    As stated before, sure would be fun to get a hold of one of them play books, just to see what it's all about......Mind boggling for sure.

    i would love to flip threw any one of the playbooks in the nfl. 800 pages of every play for every situation.
    get inside a quarterback's head for an afternoon and learn how hard it actually is to be one

    Anytime my fellow viking compadres! Did any of you happen to see the "go to play" for the vikings. They pulled an actual play from their book along with the other 31 teams. I'll find it and post it here. Later.

    Here it is. Scroll all the way to the bottom. It's the last play for the NFC teams.
