Peter King, the dean of NFL writers, is starting his own website: MMQB. It debuts Monday. Think Grantland, except with a singular NFL focus. King, 56, was a free agent last year, and courted by many outlets. We talked about that, how his site will operate, how he built his staff, and who he views as competition.
* When talking with other outlets, SI wasn’t the only media entity to offer him his own website.
* MMQB will publish 7-days a week during training camp. During the season? (Grantland doesn’t publish on weekends.)
* “I don’t want to chase police cars.” This leads me to believe they won’t be too bloggy, but you should hear his entire answer. The Pouncey Twins wearing Free Hernandez hats ties into the discussion.
* How much of a Fantasy Football component will there be?
* King revealed a really cool story Greg Bedard has for next week. It’s about the read option and Stanford.
* Among his competition: Pro Football Talk, Jay Glazer, Mort & Schefter.
