There's little doubt that the NFL is better than it's ever been in so many ways . Players are better, faster, and stronger than ever (through what means, we daren't speculate). Schemes are more complex on offense and defense. HD technology has given us the ability to analyze the game at a forensic level, and there are more ways to disseminate and share that information than ever. Still, there are things that the modern NFL would do well to replicate. I'm talking, of course, about the uber-cheesy annual team music video. These videos were a staple of the 1980s, and it's pretty clear to me that it's time for a new generation of fans to be thrilled, excited, mortified, and vaguely creeped out by the kinds of things you're about to see.
This post was inspired by the efforts of our good friend Dan Steinberg over at the D.C. Sports Bog, so I'll begin with the 1987 Washington Redskins' take on the "Ghostbusters" theme.
