Dan Lewis, a contributor to Pro Football Prospectus 2005, and has started a new sports wiki called ArmchairGM with some of his friends. The site is in pre-beta right now, but here is the idea: Live, fan-written game recaps, where everyone contributes as writers and editors of the same article.
Dan writes: "The site is not ready to 'go live,' as they say, but I want to give FO readers a chance to prove the power of, well, a community of football fans. One of my friends insists that, if you get enough fans together, they'll write a much better game recap that the AP reporter will. He's probably right, and I'd like to put it to the test. We have the playoffs this weekend, and that means, we're all watching the same game. That means hundreds of FO readers, each of whom are more knowledgeable than Jason Whitlock, will be seeing the same thing and, hopefully, drawing interesting conclusions throughout. We want them recorded.

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
