I really like this. (MMQB) I read about it in SI and Peter King/Dan Patrick is the reason I subscribed. Traveling to the 2013 Training Camps is going to be a lot of work. Looking forward to your reports, please keep up the great job.

I am not liking the heavy video use so far.  I like to read.  Not wait for video to load.  But that is just one guy's opinion.

I agree that interviewing one owner once a week would be interesting especially since the subjects change from year-to-year.  I also have to agree with others that the production quality was very poor.  It's one of your first so I'll cut you some slack, but as was mentioned it was poorly edited and shot.  Not to mention your other cohorts looked bored and / or uncomfortable being on camera.  Nothing you can't iron out, though.

 I'm awfully curious what on earth Jerry was talking about when he said....

 "The rules haven't caught up with that yet .... The Quarterback will either be a Passer or a Runner..."


 Um... WTF?!?  If a rule is passed meant to restrict the quarterbacks options to be either a passer or a runner..... well, how would you do that?  Announce "This is a Pass!" or "This is a Run" like you have to announce that linemen are eligible receivers?? The entire point of the play action is the same concept only with the added dimension of the option for the QB to be a runner.


 That statement was so brief yet so explosive... My Mind is Blown!  What is he thinking I wonder? I wouldn't put it past Jerry Jones to attempt to lobby for a rule to limit a concept he cannot defend or practice with his current roster/personnel & coaching staff.

 It'd be funny if that's actually the case, Like the guy that BELIEVES that the only way you beat him was by breaking the rules (Ala Jim Harbaugh). Only Jerry is going to actually try & FIX the rules so YOU CAN'T DO THAT!  A Freudian slip from the ultimate egocentric megalomaniac =)

@Jakers I made note of that as well.  It's like he's suggesting they're planning something in the rules similar to the changes the NFL made to stop Mel Blount from dominating the game in the 70's.

Here's a recurring feature idea that I don't think I've seen elsewhere that might fit in nicely with MMQB - a weekly feature (or monthly feature) on the main owner of each franchise. How they got to a financial position able to purchase a team; the increase in value during ownership; some interesting ownership anecdotes (draft, hiring coaches/GM, etc.).  You could interview long time employees, etc.  It might make an interesting series for an inside look at the business behind the NFL owners.

Rules and defenses won't catch up with RG3 type quarterbacks. Injuries will. Traditionalists have given quarterbacks that scramble a hard time, but Randall Cunningham and Michael Vick had/have a proclivity to run and they did well. Other QB's that had scrambling as part of their game were Brett Favre, Steve Young, and John Elway. The difference is that running complimented their passing game rather than replacing it. The idea that run option QBs are just a fad is silliness. However, run option QBs that don't know how to pass effectively or who run too much will quickly learn that the NFL means Not For Long.

Dig the interview with Boss Jones. Two things however not related to football. The camera work on the bus was poor I know its tight space but head space on the shots & editing were poor also what is wrong with your sound. I guessing you got a hairy chest & don't like using the mole skin to secure the cable but really sir at times it sounded like you were in a tunnel or being zapped by a static bug. Still I like the new format for MMQB & wish you luck with the new approach.
