Assessing the Accuracy of WP


Between John and I, there have been a couple of posts at FG related to the Advanced NFL Stats Win Probability charts. If you've paid any attention, you know just how neat they are. If you are a...

Still Unsigned


It's not easy to keep track of every single roster move by every team in the NFL, especially when your vested interest lies with one team. That's why I was somewhat surprised when I saw this list...

Five Year Salary Numbers

I'll keep it brief as I'm limited on time this morning. Football Outsiders (Aaron Schatz, specifically) assembled a list of the 25 most overrated and 25 most underrated players of the last decade....

When Should You Hold?


Probability is neat. Brian Burke, the wizard behind the Advanced NFL Stats studies, strikes again. If you don't know the drill by now (follow the link!), you probably voted "13-14" on the poll...

How Many Wins?


It's too early in the offseason to have a serious go at looking at schedules in the attempt to figure out how many games the Seahawks can expect to realistically win. Sure, part of that is the...

Excitement Index and Comeback Factor

A Friday Editorial: Stallworth and Goodell


Stallworth's suspension shows inconsistency from the Commissioner.

More Cap Learnin'

NFC Building Blocks

The End of Minicamp


Now that minicamp is over, the Seahawks have about seven weeks until training camp. For a wrap up of the minicamp, here's USA Today. How did Jim Mora feel about the work to date? "We had an...

An Interview with Forsett


Thanks to Eric Williams and his access to training camp, you all get the privilege of listening to his interview with Justin Forsett. Unlike the Brian Russell interview from earlier that was...

Branch and his Knee

One Down


The Seahawks yesterday agreed to terms with 7th round pick Courtney Greene. Just what were those terms? Four years, $1.75 million (with $43,000 as a signing bonus). If you take a look around the...

Does Payroll Matter?


Is there a relationship between NFL team payroll and success?

Cap Efficiency


Any NFL GM could probably spend the entirety of their salary cap before the bathroom mirror steams up; how they spend it is another story all together. This isn't baseball, where the Yankee pay...

Ken Lucas Via KJR Via TNT


Ken Lucas had a chat with KJR which the always intrepid Eric Williams wrote up. Lucas answered questions about his return to Seattle, the Steve Smith incident, and the state of Ken Lucas at age 30. ...

More Plays: Hackett Bunch Skinny Post


When we last left the Football Outsiders playbook, the focus was on goal line deception. Today we look at the bunch formation, specifically from the 2007 2006 Seahawks.  The situation: first...

Tight End Usage on the Goal Line


As is par for the course in Southern California this time of year, the early indicators point to another drought over the summer. Water rationing will kick in sooner or later, and that means being...

Editorial: Quiet Time


Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton went on a radio show in Atlanta on Tuesday and offered his thoughts on Brett Favre. Ordinarily, players and former players alike think of themselves as part of a...
