A short video from NFL Films about the legacy of Pat Summerall, who died yesterday of cardiac arrest. I became aware of the NFL rather late in Summerall's broadcasting career, but it's still hard for me to not compare other announcers to him.

If you're interested, the video from this year's football analytics panel at the MIT Sloan conference is finally online. Andrea Kremer moderated; panelists were Rams COO Kevin Demoff, 49ers COO Paraag Marathe, former Patriots and Chiefs executive Scott Pioli, and -- drum roll, please -- Football Outsiders progenitor Aaron Schatz.
I was there, and I'm not saying this because he pays my bills, but Aaron was the star of the discussion. To be fair, though, he was basically the only one at liberty to offer blunt opinions. (I'd say full-throated, but he had lost his voice the day before.)
In any event, click for "Armanti Edwards, c'mon!" Stay for the DeAngelo Hall takedown.

Our annual look at the NFL draft from six years ago was more of an informal, subjective look at the class of 2007. What if we look at things more objectively? (Click to read more.)

Major criminal charges aside, factoring character into a prospect's evaluation when you're not part of an NFL team is a dangerous proposition.

Kevin Kolb to Buffalo, Carson Palmer to Arizona, Matt Flynn to Seattle, Ryan Fitzpatrick to Tennessee, swing your partner round and round. What I want to know is: what did Drew Stanton do in past life, set fire to London or something?

The RSP Writers Project draft is now midway through the 11th round, so I thought I would link the results so far for FO readers to discuss. For those of you who didn't read about this project earlier, an explanation: Over on Matt Waldman's site, 32 different NFL writers are building teams through a straight draft. The idea is to find value while also building a team around a coherent philosophy. Writers can choose to build for now, or build for the future. Each writer is giving an explanation for his picks as well.
