I had a fascinating conversation with Spielma

I had a fascinating conversation with Spielman today and the general manager dug deep into the subject of scouting. We focused mostly on pro scouting as opposed to the examination of players entering the NFL out of college. Spielman was open and informative on the subject, revealing that the Vikings watch film of every single player in the NFL and have a grade on every other player in the league not on their roster. It makes perfect sense, of course, when you think about the need to know who is out there if you need to swing a trade like the one that brought in Sam Bradford last year. But it remains a mind boggling amount of work for Spielman and his scouts who, if a player has been in the league for 10 years, will have charted and graded his progress and/or decline every step of the way.

If he’s fit, there’s no greater game changer in the NFL, let alone this game. The Giants’ charismatic receiver has not seen any action since injuring his left ankle on August 21 in a preseason game. OBJ did not play in the team’s season opening defeat in Dallas, with the team missing their star play maker desperately, as they mustered up only cheap nfl jerseys for sale three points on offence. That certainly won’t be the same story in Week Two if Beckham takes to the field.
