Here is a response to two questions we've received regarding FO Premium.
First, we know about the problem where links that were supposed to go to the Premium Database didn't actually go there. This now should be fixed. You need to log into the store first, but then it will know you have the Premium access, and it will take you to the database.

We open the "new" Extra Points with this mailbag question about PFP 2007: The Chargers led the league in sacks, but were only 28th in Adjusted Hurry Percentage. Is there any explanation for such a wide variance? (Click link to read more.)

If you are interested in my thoughts on the Washington Redskins before tonight's event at Politics and Prose in DC, here is an article from today's Washington Post Express. Also features some thoughts on the rest of the league and a picture of me in a funky hat.

Everybody off the Arizona bandwagon! (Well, those of you who were still on the Arizona bandwagon after reading PFP 07.) Linebacker Chike Okeafor and right tackle Oliver Ross both tore muscles and probably are gone for the year. Ross was likely going to lose a job battle with first-round pick Levi Brown, but the Cardinals have now gone from very little offensive line depth to no offensive line depth. Okeafor's versatility was a big part of the Cardinals' decision to switch full-time to a 3-4 scheme, and now the Cardinals are depending on inexperienced Darryl Blackstock.

This is quite impressive. A poster over on ArmchairGM ("Davis21wylie," real name unknown) has put together this extensive list of the greatest quarterbacks in modern NFL history with a method that sort of combines FO theories with some of the stuff that Sean Lahman was doing with the original version of PFP from five years ago. (Three or four of you might actually know of that book's existence.) The article is colossal, along the lines of my "best X seasons" articles in PFP instead of what you would expect from an Internet post.

Jon Abbate, fullback? Hey, it worked for Oliver Hoyte. Hat tip to the gal (not guys) at AOL Fanhouse.

Normally, well-known blogger John Cole is ticked off about politics. Not today. Today, John Cole is ticked off about the new Pittsburgh Steelers mascot. Scroll up and you will see that he's right -- it does kinda look like "Wario." You know, I always thought Myron Cope was the Steelers' mascot. Double Yoi!

A clarification regarding the St. Louis chapter of Pro Football Prospectus 2007.

Time for our annual call for game charting volunteers. If you've read Pro Football Prospectus 2007, you know just how valuable this information is. The more charters we have, the quicker we can turn around the data and use it during the season -- and the fewer people who have to cover a full game instead of just one half. If you join the charting project, you'll get access to all the charting data once it is complete. You'll get to contribute your thoughts to our "Game Charters Speak" articles during the season, and your comments may end up in PFP 2008.
