On February 1, Seahawks.NET was honored to participate in another 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.
