Thank you

The response to the publication of the 2012 Rookie Scouting Portfolio has been great. I appreciate the feedback from old and new readers alike. I’m already setting plans in motion to make 2013’s publication even better and I’m actually evaluating games for next year. Texas A&M’s Christine Michael and Ryan Swope are two players I placed under the microscope this week and Oklahoma’s Landry Jones isn’t far behind. In the coming weeks I’ll be posting content here for both 2012 and 2013.

If you haven’t purchased the 2012 RSP, I believe you’ll be blown away by the depth of analysis. I can tell you bluntly that worst thing about the RSP is the thought, “why did I wait so long to pull the trigger on this?!” after looking through it.   If you have an iPad, consider GoodReader – I’m repeatedly told it works amazingly well on iPads with this excellent app.

Get the 2012 Rookie Scouting Portfolio and you’ll understand why I keep pounding this point home like Anthony Munoz beating your ass 80 times a game in the trenches:


Thomas Gower’s Look Back at the 2006 Draft

Sigmund Bloom’s Prediction of Five Surprise First-Round Picks in the 2012 NFL Draft

Wes Bunting’s Draft Prospects He’d Fight For


Greg Cosell w/Yahoo!’s Doug Farrar talking RBs and WRs on The Shutdown Corner Podcast

Al Davis’ Theme Song During the Raiders’s Prime

Chris Potter is the Peyton Manning of the Tenor Saxophone


This is the best visual of the joy of play I’ve seen in a while.

This is a great demonstration of the power of music – thanks to Miguel Rodriguez for hipping me to this video. Very powerful.

  1. This is a brilliant idea for a blog. I appreciate that you’ve included so much non-football related content. Thank you.

    • Thanks Nick,

      It’s funny – I feel like I include a ton of football content, but once a week I just like to link to things that aren’t just football related. There’s so much fascinating about life in any direction you bother to look. Glad you appreciate it.
