MMQB: Tales from the Training Camp Trail

I have a sneaking suspicion that the glowing review of Pro Football Prospectus 2007 in today's MMQB may be responsible for this morning's server outage. With my suspicion comes an apology, of course... I swear, some day we will solve our server issues for good. Really. Thanks go to Peter King for his nice words about us.

PFP First Take Video

Heh. I should have realized that, in this day and age, somebody was going to put my ESPN appearance on YouTube. Apparently, the winner of this lottery is a Packers fan who misunderstood the word "longshot." On TV, there really isn't much time for deep insights from the book, but this is interesting for readers who are curious what I look like. Wow, my temples are getting gray. I'm like a stats-spouting rabbinic Reed Richards on this thing.

Eric Parker Out 10 Weeks

Bad news for one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL, as San Diego's Eric Parker had a broken bone in his toe and will be out for around 10 weeks -- or, one-third of the regular season. KUBIAK subscribers will be interested to know that, after rearranging the San Diego receiving stats to make up for the loss of Parker, LaDainian Tomlinson moves ahead of Frank Gore for the number one spot in our fantasy football projections.

Ravens Say Communication Key to Secondary Success

Samari Rolle came out as one of the worst cornerbacks in the league last year, according to the FO game charting project. The Ravens understand that they had a problem, and according to this article, they've been "working to repair his psyche." The Ravens blame some of these bit pass plays on the fact that Ed Reed was out of position and not giving help over the top.

It's Tough to Find a Bronco in Canton

Look, folks, our buddy Mike Sando has moved over to ESPN. Here's a column asking a great question: Why do the Denver Broncos have only one player in the Hall of Fame, when other teams with historically similar win totals and championship records have six or seven players each?

If 1969 AFL Rookie of the Year Greg Cook had never been injured, would the "West Coast Offense" never have existed? If Paul Brown had chosen Bill Walsh as his successor, instead of Tiger Johnson, would the Bengals now be one of the NFL's top franchises?
