Vince Verhei on the Bill Barnwell Show

I got together with our old buddy Bill Barnwell to talk about some of the biggest games in Week 7: Falcons-Patriots in a Super Bowl rematch, Cardinals-Rams from London with major playoff implications, Saints-Packers in Brett Hundley's first start, and, uh ... Seahawks-Giants? Look, it's not a great week of games.

Off The Charts Podcast: September 28

This week on the Off The Charts podcast, we expand upon this week's DVOA commentary to talk about why Pittsburgh is a surprising No. 2 and Atlanta is surprisingly not No. 2. We also hit Tankapalooza and talk about whether the Giants or Chargers should consider moving on from their aging quarterbacks after this season. Then Mike Tanier joins us to talk about his Bleacher Report piece on the Seahawks' struggles and what he's seen this year from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Off The Charts Podcast: September 21

This week on the Off The Charts podcast, we talk about the new downfield passing of Carson Wentz and Alex Smith, and the issue of whether throwing to Jarvis Landry too much hurts the Miami offense. Special guest is NFL scout Ryan Hollern, formerly of the Saints and Bills, who discusses prospects he's had his eyes on early in the season. Does the scouting match the analytics?

Off The Charts Podcast: September 14

This week on the Off The Charts podcast, we look at some charting stats from the Chiefs' big upset of the Patriots and play "jump to conclusions" about the Rams, Eagles, and other teams.

FO on Slate Hang Up and Listen

I made an appearance this week on the Slate Hang Up and Listen podcast with Josh Levin and Stefan Fatsis, talking about the new wave of tanking teams in the NFL. Is this going to work? Is it a problem for competitive balance if more and more teams do this? My portion of the podcast starts about 20 minutes in. Spencer Hall is also on, as well as Ed Cunningham, the announcer who quit ESPN because of ethical concerns about football and head trauma.

Aaron Schatz on The Football Analytics Show

It's another podcast appearance to promote the new Football Outsiders Almanac 2017! Here I talk to Dr. Ed Feng on his Football Analytics podcast. A lot of discussion here of how I got FO started, why passing is more important than rushing, and the teams we have higher and lower than conventional wisdom in 2017. (Wade Phillips plays a major role in both.)
