Helping your players learn more quickly

Saw a couple of notes about how the NY Jets are using crossword puzzles to help new QB Brett Favre learn the team's terminology and plays.

Said Jets head coach Eric Mangini (pictured here with Favre):

"He's into crossword puzzles. So we take the information and put it in the form of a crossword puzzle and give him that. There are a lot of different avenues. I like to do things in formats that my players are familiar with."
