  1. The discussion of offensive linemen getting bigger over time reminds me of a discussion of the evolution of athletes’ bodies in David Epstein’s book “The Sports Gene.” Basically, over the last 120 years or so, the bodies of top performing athletes have moved away from the average human body type and towards very specialized body types (which have advantages for a particular activity – ie. long torso for swimming) as the reward (ie. endorsement deals, pro contracts, scholarships etc.) for participation in sports has become more lucrative.
