James Hicks



I grew up in Humboldt County (no, I don't have any), along the coast, north of Eureka, CA (about 60 miles south of the Oregon border). Went to college in the area (Humboldt State) and moved to San Francisco not long after. I have worked in various publishing and content management jobs, including editing PBS NewsHour and other PBS shows for online viewing. I also taught ESL overseas in both the Czech Republic and England (trust me, their English is abominable) where finding a place to watch a Niner game could be downright challenging. I love music, film and sports—but not music or films about sports (the exceptions being Mojo Nixon's stunning rocker, "Not as Much as Football" and "Major League" still cracks me up).

    Player interceptions is not an advanced stat. And I linked to pro-football-reference, the site where I get all my stats, at the end of the grades piece. I do this every week because I use many stats I find there. It's easier to link the site once rather than four or five different times in some cases.

    Thanks for the edit yesterday, James! PS, my college (Azusa Pacific) is playing your alma mater tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing how the game plays out. Also, I've been the the Czech Republic and I can attest that their English IS abominable! Anyways, thanks again, I'm looking forward to working with you!

    Thanks for the edits James, those changes make captured what I was trying to imply by saying Kaepernick struggled to get things going. Definitely appreciate it.
