.NET Q&A - Aaron Schatz (audio)

On January 19, Seahawks.NET was honored to participate in a phone interview with Aaron Schatz, the Editor-in-Chief of Football Outsiders, the cutting-edge website that endeavors to bring new statistical and analytical factors to the diehard fan's enjoyment of the game.

Compared to Bill James by the New York Times, Aaron has done custom research for NFL.com and a number of NFL teams.

When I asked Aaron to talk about the upcoming NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers, I was hoping that he would give me a few minutes of matchup information. What actually occurred was the definition of a pleasant surprise – he went into Deep Analysis Mode in the following five-part, forty-five minute audio interview. The audio links have been posted for your enjoyment, with a full transcript to follow presently:
