I'm stealing some thunder from @BadAngle41, who posted this article in another thread.  I wanted to give it its own thread so it got more eyes on.  Unfortunately The Athletic is a paid subscription site.  I am not a member but I have heard from several people that their content is very good.  If you're already a subscriber give it a look see.  If you are not, I believe they offer deals for first time subscribers.
