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.

Mandatory Monday*: All Third String Team

My all-third string team, because people are talking so much about third stringers these days. I based the list mainly on the name recognition of the guys: I have no doubt that there are 30 late-round rookies and undrafted free agents who are better than Chilo Rachal right now, but I went with people who have some kind of track record. Fun, a little informative, and about 2,500 words of non-stop passive aggression.

The usual suspects get my unusual treatment.
