That being said, this article about Troy Polamalu and Ed Reed and the ever-evolving structure of NFL defenses is completely and totally fascinating to any football nut. I'm really impressed that someone that knows this much about football can write this well about it. I learned a lot from this article. You will too.

Grantland has been absolutely killing it lately, and I completely realize they have been dominating this site. But what do you want me to do?
