Aaron Schatz on Advanced Football Analytics Podcast

I can't, I won't, and I don't stop... promoting Football Outsiders Almanac 2014. Here's a very long appearance on the Advanced Football Analytics podcast hosted by Dave Collins. Among the subjects we cover: the decision to list "edge rushers" as their own position in this year's book, how we determine replacement level, the concept of "Platonic team quality," difficulties with the game charting project, and my hatred of illegal celebration penalties.

This week, Peter King looks at the Johnny Manziel circus in Cleveland, Tennessee's attempt to fix Jake Locker's accuracy, and all those flags from the first weekend of preseason football. Plus, lots of Football Outsiders-related stuff, including a plug for FOA 2014 plus Peter's travels with our former colleague Andy Benoit. It's milk-tastic!

FOA 2014 MEDIA: Sports-Casters Podcast

Hey, kids! Podcasts! Yesterday I recorded an episode of the Sports-Casters podcast to promote Football Outsiders Almanac 2014. This one actually got deep into a discussion of the different kinds of NFL analytics and how Football Outsiders differs from other site. Hopefully I didn't get loopy and say anything obnoxious. I'll have a couple of other podcast links in the next couple days that we'll add to this post as we continue to promote the book.
