How long does it take Marrdro to watch a Vikings game?
What's your best guess as to how long it takes Marrdro to watch a Vikings game, document his findings & update the ole Vikings spreadsheets?
Considering he keeps track of what every single Vikings player is doing on any given play, he must be re-watching certain plays up to 11 times.
He watches things like how many steps back the QB is taking on pass plays, which guards are pulling, which gaps are being filled/opened, which direction the RB ran, which routes the WR's ran, which receivers were open, which weren't, what play was called, did the QB leave the pocket to early, etc, etc, etc.
And that just the offense, now figure in the defense. What were each of DLinemen doing? Who was getting pressure? Collecting evidence & justifying why we need a warpig. Then there's the LB's, DB's & safety to keep track of.
Let's not forget ST as well. How far did Longwell kick it? Which players stayed in their lanes? Who didn't?
In addition to all that, he takes notes on every single play, including keeping track of how much possession time each offense has the ball. Then there's the matter of updating the spreadsheets post-haste as well as creating new ones if need be.
Also got to figure in time for potty breaks & kitchen runs for beer & noshing.
My guess: 9 hours, 53 minutes.
