Michael David Smith Chat Transcript II

You just can't stop this guy from talking about the NFL Draft. This time, he spoke with the readers of SEAHAWKS.NET. By the way, I just want to thank Mike for taking the lead on the draft coverage this year. I don't watch college football, and this is the one area of the NFL I really don't study much. I really appreciate that Mike dealt with our content partners and that he and Mike Tanier wrote lots of draft-related material, freeing me up to work on Pro Football Prospectus 2006.

FO on FOX: Revisiting Past Drafts

Two years ago I wrote an article revisiting the 1998 draft, and last year I wrote an article revisiting the 1999 draft. This year I've revised those two articles, and they're both now available at FoxSports.com. The 1998 version is linked in the headline, and the 1999 version is available if you go into the comments and click this link.

Yes, I will be writing an article revisiting the 2000 draft. Football Outsiders and FoxSports.com will be the best places on the Internet to get NFL draft analysis for the next month.

Quick Reads: Super Bowl XL

Learn just how much Tom Rouen sucks. Plus my feelings on the officiating, edited for the general public. If Pittsburgh fans want to continue to take issue with that in this thread, that's fine, but don't expect a response. I'm sick of trying to convince people that I'm not a Seahawks fan.

FO Interviews Tony Parrish and Shawne Merriman

How do you stop the Seahawks and the Steelers? Why not ask a couple guys who had to face those offenses themselves? I had a chance to interview both San Francisco safety Tony Parrish and San Diego linebacker Shawne Merriman, and ask them about facing Seattle and Pittsburgh this year (and in the case of Parrish, in the last few years). I think this is the first FO interview of active players.
