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.

This week, PK is on the road with thoughts on LeVeon Bell, the Bills, Riley Cooper, and more. Also: a plug for some book we wrote.

Packers' left tackle Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL during Saturday's Green Bay "Family Night" scrimmage and is probably done for the season. Bulaga's transition from right tackle to left was by no means guaranteed to go smoothly, but he was still the Packers' best tackle. Aaron Rodgers can help cover for that line's problems against mediocre and bad defenses, but it's the kind of issue that I would bet gets magnified when we get to the postseason. At least the Packers now have the whole season to figure out their line and get some cohesion between those players.

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.

Using DVOA splits based on our charting data, we've solved the mystery of Josh Freeman's disappearance in Weeks 12-17. Turns out it he acquired an acute case of blitz-induced paranoia.

This is a really good idea. Ted Bartlett of Denver Broncos blog "It's All Over Fatman" has come up with an idea to describe defensive schemes using a series of letters, as if they were personalities in the Myers-Briggs Indicator. You end up with descriptions that are much more detailed than just "3-4" vs. "4-3," not to mention more applicable in a league where teams now have to play nickel or dime the majority of the time. The splits:
Stack (2-gap) vs. Penetrate (1-gap)
Downhill run D vs. Flow run D
Man vs. Zone
Coverage-oriented vs. Blitz-oriented
