From Heather Dinich of ESPN.com:

But I do believe there is a place for people who have a good, solid background in football and have a good understanding of football with regard to being able to look at factors relative to each team and form a highly educated opinion in an unbiased fashion to go along with what the computers do for you. I think that would be helpful.”
