I am impressed with this NFL linebacker's freakonomics

even though he plays for a divisional rival:

"What you want to do is limit your reps," [Bart] Scott explained after a recent training camp session at SUNY Cortland. "You want to lead the league in three-and-outs.

"You want to play the least amount of plays than anybody in the NFL. That should be your goal, to be No. 1. To have a lot of tackles? That means nothing. I could stand on the field all day and make tackles, but our team isn't going to be very good."

...

Only one defender listed among the top 10 tacklers on NFL.com was on a team that made the playoffs.
