FO Ranks All 32 Teams for 2007: Quarterbacks

Yes, it's time for that fun debate, ranking all 32 teams at every position. What, you say, some other website is doing this same thing? Ah, yes, but FOX has been doing this for years, and this is the second year that they've left Football Outsiders in charge. We have an "Inc." in our name, too, even if the only people who ever see it are our accountant and the IRS. Even better, this year's articles feature the always fun FOX reader comments. Mike Tanier kicks things off for 2007 with quarterbacks, led by you know who, followed by you know who.

Leaf: The Film Clip!

A few months ago, Mike Tanier wrote about the new independently-made "mockumentary" Leaf, about everyone's favorite quarterback bust. Mike mentioned that he had a small role in the film, basically playing himself. The folks from Parking Lot Films have put out a film clip from the movie, shown on the NFL Network and other places, and it stars... our very own Mike Tanier! For those of you who always wondered what he looks like, now is your chance.
