ESPN: QB Hope Index

A new feature for ESPN Insider, the QB Hope Index. I broke down the last 20 years of franchise quarterbacks to figure out what indicators help us learn when a young quarterback will fully develop, and then we give the chances for every quarterback from the last three drafts. You may be surprised to learn even Dak Prescott doesn't have a 100 percent chance of long-term success, and even Christian Hackenberg is not at zero.

Aaron Schatz on Down on the Bank Podcast

I did a nice podcast this week with Jaugars fans on the Down by the Bank podcast. It's a good listen for folks who want to know more about me and my thoughts on analytics past just Jacksonville. We talk about why I've opened up my Twitter feed (but not this website) to politics, civil rights issues in the NFL, the current status of analytics in the NFL, how I decide on who gets chapters in FO Almanac, and my past in Daytona Beach.

NFL Coaches Skeptical of Chip-Generated Data

Now that we've got the book out of the way, we can get back to linking and discussing really good football articles we find around the Interwebs. And this is a good one: Kevin Seifert discusses how coaches feel about the in-game movement data provided by chips in player shoulder pads. They are surprisingly unexcited by it. But I think I know why, and it's not simply because they're old-school and anti-analytics. (Click to read more.)
