Are the Nerds taking over pro football?

Read Time:5 Minute, 54 Second


Are the nerds taking over NFL front offices? Certainly they are in Minnesota, where a former commodities trader is now the general manager.

Kwesi Adofo-Mensah’s first moves were to make six trades during last month’s draft as if he was swapping wheat futures in hopes of grabbing some oil futures. Then his next step was to bring in a guy with an MBA that had an emphasis in analytics to fill a newly created position in Minnesota of vice president of football operations. Somewhere Billy Beane, the originator of the “moneyball” school of building a baseball franchise, is smiling. Whether Vikings fans will be remains to be seen but the overall track record of pro sports’ Geek Squad has not been great…depending on how you crunch the numbers of course.
