The fundamentals

Does your organization teach the fundamentals? Regularly? Here’s Don Shula on the great Paul Brown (from a WSJ article in 2008):

On the first night of training camp, he would dictate – and you’d have to write down long-hand – the fundamentals of football: how to run, how to catch, how to carry the ball. He did that every year. Otto Graham [Cleveland’s star quarterback] had been there 10 years and he’s in there doing it with the rookies.

Happy almost 2010. Here’s to hoping your 2009 was a good one.
