Coaches Film Just Got Clearer

OH MY GLOB OH MY GLOB OH MY GLOB ... I was at an NFL Network event on Wednesday, and they announced that the all-22 film on NFL Game Rewind will now be high-definition. That's right: no more blurry little guys on a grainy background. Nerdquake! Nerdquake!

Mandatory Monday: Making Their Point

A look at how the quarterback controversies are shaping up. They are shaping up like: "the old guy looks bad and the young guy looks OK, so ... whoops, the young guy is hurt, we are stuck with the old guy, huzzah."

Mandatory Monday: Preseason Points

Notes from all over the NFL, a discussion of read-option nomenclature, teasing Redskins fans for getting carried away about third string QBs (they are the wackiest fanbase in the NFL when it comes to this), and a link back to my Chip Kelly article from Saturday.

The Quarterback Nonsense Index

Hey gang! I usually don't gum up the XPs with every little thing I write for Sports on Earth, but I thought you would get a kick out of my effort to rank the quarterbacks in terms of the amount of sportstalk blather they generate.

Mandatory Monday: Lost Highways

Fans of Walkthrough will enjoy my notes from the road, I hope: a mix of observations about prospects, weird drills, and misadventures on the Lincoln Highway.

Mandatory Monday: Same Old Jets?

The answer to the question in the headline is No. John Idzik has them talking a good game, which is at least a step toward playing a good game.

Mandatory Monday: Hot Rivals

Camp-style coverage kicks off with this very FOA-style breakdown of the 49ers and Seahawks, acting as if their Week 2 matchup was this Sunday, because we with it was. Over at my Tailgater blog I am putting up all sorts of team-based Heading into Camp articles, with ones about the Ravens and Rams already up!

Mandatory Monday: Numbers Game

I tease FOA 2013 at Sports on Earth a little by using some examples from 2012 to explain how you can do your own do-it-yourself analysis. Much of what I am saying is preaching to the choir here, but it never hurts to break out the greatest hits package.

Mandatory Monday: Let's Get Real

My survey of several of the fantasy football guides currently on shelves, plus a look at why buying a fantasy football guide off a shelf makes almost no sense in 2013.

Mandatory Monday: Fandom in Crisis

This was really hard to write. The Hernandez case has made me feel physically sick a few times: an occupational hazard, no doubt. Here's what I think of the sport we love these days, and also what I think of people who use terrible crimes like this to be as callous or cynical as possible.
