Aaron Schatz on Bleeding Green Nation Fireside Chats

Hey, time for another podcast appearance, this time with Michael Kist of Bleeding Green Nation to focus on the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles. We discuss how the Eagles use analytics, the over-correction regarding Carson Wentz's rookie season, and the greatest defense of all time.

Aaron Schatz on Down by the Bank Podcast

Go really in-depth with our surprising Jacksonville forecast on the Jaguars podcast Down by the Bank. We also talk some Blake Bortles: bust, or not? It depends what you expected out of a third overall pick.

AAF Different From Leagues That Have Come Before

AAF Different From Leagues That Have Come Before

I've got to be honest, this AAF thing sounds like the best plan for a spring league yet. They really are trying to hit the sweet spot of real football as a developmental league, working with the NFL rather than challenging it. They've got real coaches involved, including Brad Childress, Mike Martz, and Rick Neuheisel. The teams are in medium-sized southern cities without NFL clubs (well, Salt Lake City isn't exactly southern) plus Phoenix and Atlanta. They've got a TV contract with CBS Sports Network.

Aaron Schatz on Pick Six Podcast

I went on the CBS Sports Pick Six podcast with Will Brinson to talk about Football Outsiders Almanac 2018 and preview the upcoming season. We get into the surprisingly mediocre Jaguars forecast, talk about why the Browns could be a playoff contender, and ask if the Bears can be the new Rams.
