From the combine: More teams are using ‘Moneyball,’ but tape still tells the primary story | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports
"I think you've got to know what the Joneses are doing, and know what other people are looking at," Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider said on Thursday. "Not necessarily in terms of how much money we spend on a player, or where we put a player on our board, but it's something you definitely have to look at. There are so many different tools out there now. I don't know how Phil [Emery] does it, but It's something that we don't blow off at all.

Per Mort, the Seahawks "are not going to sit there and say let's get this guy signed to a contract extension."
