Good Morning Gjallarhorn Episode 005 – Grandmas & Contracts
Good morning everybody, Dave here, with another episode of the vodcast Good Morning Gjallarhorn. In this episode Drew and I talked about our sweet sport fanatic grandmothers and how not signing or trading away favorite players gets their ire up. What actually should be considered for induction into the Hall of Fame, just on-field numbers, and actions, or off-field antics too? Should the Vikings emulate the Patriots way? How about the technology helping show when a player starts to decline? The Vikings got Danielle Hunter locked up cheap in our minds, and then there was a debate on just how much money and when [or if], Anthony Barr and Stefon Diggs will be offered an extension too. It was a fun show.
As always, enjoy the watch!

- What play and behaviors should be taken into account when making a case for Hall of Fame enshrinement?
- Would the Vikings be better off copying the Patriots and getting rid of player a year early rather than a year late?
- Referenced the Rotoworld podcast: A Conversation With an NFL Director of Analytics
“In this solo podcast, Josh Norris details his conversation with Scott Kuhn, the Vikings’ Director of Analytics. The topics range from use of GPS tracking to athletic testing to factoring in age in evaluations. These moments of peeling back the NFL curtain are difficult to come by, so if you enjoy please share and tell a friend.”
