"In fact, only about 31 percent of all passes are thrown beyond 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. We hear a lot that the NFL is a passing league, but itís more accurate to say that itís a short-passing league."

Nice to see Grantland is about 2 years behind me in figuring this out.

I'm thinking the same thing, They are on ahead of the curve when it comes down to Basketball. But they are severely lacking in the football department.

Technically speaking, this should be in NFL Gen and not the pats forum. However:

a) I don't think I've ever moved a topic before and it would probably go wrong
b) It's a good post and is kind of pats related

So i'll allow it Very Happy
