MMQB: Falcons Owner Blank Feels Betrayed by Vick

I know FO has had its troubles with Atlanta Falcons fans over the years, but Peter King has a point: Arthur Blank, the Falcons organization, and the Atlanta fans put their faith in Michael Vick, and he's really screwed them here. Also, if you meet Peter King in an airport restroom, try not to make a scene, okay?

FO Mailbag: Jets Offensive Line

Hey, wait a minute... if Nick Mangold was so good as a rookie, how come the Jets' Adjusted Line Yards numbers are so terrible on runs up the middle? (Click link to read more.)

Peter King's All-Future Team

As noted in the previous Extra Point, Sports Illustrated has a feature this week where a leading writer for each sport picks an All-Time Dream Team, a current All-Pro Team, and an All-Future (2012) Team. Here's a link to Peter King's All-2012 Team for discussion. His rules: No players over 28, no college players other than those entering their fourth year of eligibility, because too many things can happen to a guy in five years. Fair enough.

Peter King's All-Time Dream Team

Oh, boy. This is going to spark some discussion. Sports Illustrated has a whole feature this week -- no idea if it is online only, or in the magazine as well -- where a leading writer for each sport picks three Dream Teams: One for history, one for now, one for the future. To be honest, I think the "all-current" team is boring -- it isn't like Peter King is the only guy who picks a current All-Pro team. The other two are more interesting, and each deserves its own XP discussion.

Aaron Schatz on the BS Report

Long awaited... Bill Simmons and yours truly discuss Pro Football Prospectus, WBRU, why the league should sell coaches' film to fans, possible sleeper teams for 2007, and how on earth a Patriots fan (me) could be such a Peyton Manning defender, even before Super Bowl XLI. This turned out to be the longest BS Report ever, it probably comes out as an hour or even more. Great fun. My one regret is that we went elsewhere when he asked about teams we were wrong about last year, and I never did get to talk about the Colts defense in the playoffs.

READ: Two Questions about Premium

Here is a response to two questions we've received regarding FO Premium.

First, we know about the problem where links that were supposed to go to the Premium Database didn't actually go there. This now should be fixed. You need to log into the store first, but then it will know you have the Premium access, and it will take you to the database.
