You know the guy from FF, his handle is FinMan. Well, yesterday, he accepted an offer from Rick Spielman to join the Vikings as a scout. He's trying to bring the kind of statistical analysis to football that Bill James brought to baseball. He's got a long road in front of him, but if he's successful, you guys will have revolutionized the game.

just because you don't know who he is doesn't mean he isn't known on this site. FinMan runs his own football draft website too, has always been cordial and respectful, and has a real analytical mind for the game.

interesting to see that Spielman took notice.

It was a joke, hence the Laughing

I wish him the best, and hopefully climb the latter of working in the NFL

he's a Dolphin fan. but if he's also a Florida State fan (or even a general SEC fan), then he's right in line with Spielman.

Very Happy

Earliest published diagnostic reports from Finman probably indicated that teams who draft two players from the same school in 1 year are likely to succeed in the near future.

I wonder if Spielman lurked on the Dolphins FF pages, the Vikings FF pages, or Florida college football pages?

I have no further comments at this time.
So, as they say in France... Fin.

Wow. That's really interesting. I've seen some of his threads before where he asks posters to post their team's drafting tendencies. Guess the Vikings will have a lot of intel now. Laughing
