FO on Slate Podcast

I appear today on Slate.com's "Hang Up and Listen" sports podcast with Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca. Join us as we talk about a few issues going into the season, including the Matt Leinart release and the idea of team projections as shades of gray rather than black and white.

I don't think those guys understood a word you said--they left with the same preconceived notions they went in with. At times I also thought they didn't like having someone smarter than them on the show, which makes me wonder why they invited a guest in the first place...

Seconded. Truly terrible interviewers, but not in a fun "uber-homer" way like some of the SB nation stuff from the last month. Just.... man.

Regarding Matt Leinart:

I'm not sure how the host feels about links to different websites, but I found some interesting thoughts about Matt Leinart via Greg Cosell and Ron Jaworski. Considering FO's relationship with Cosell and Jaworski, and that the podcasts are on an ESPN affiliate, I thought it wouldn't be a big issue. However, feel free to delete if it's inappropriate.

Greg Cosell: His remarks on Leinart appear a little after the 5:00 mark.

Ron Jaworski: His remarks are around the 10:30 mark.

The idea of Slate having a sports podcast is absurd on its face.

Slate doesn't have a face. It's a web-based magazine.
