    I'd be ATD on:

    Buffalo (Vegas and DVOA agree, plus cross country early game).
    Baltimore (I gave it 1 confidence point, no ringing endorsement).

    Just remember Patrick, it could be worse. ;)

    Corporal punishment is still pretty big in the south. Whenever I hear about someone using a switch to discipline a child I think back to Richard Pryor's description of the fear he got just getting...

    Fascinating. I'd have said the military. Hi stress, little money, un-realistic goals.

    Hard to make a call on that. Most of the shore counties were in bad shape before Sandy and it has become worse since. A friend up in Monmouth County mentioned just a few weeks ago that there is a...

    I'll pipe up as one of the group edging toward 60 and say that I find DVOA a very useful metric. If ESPN would ever spit out the exact
    process and sets of formula** used for their new QBR I might...

    Need to give props to a great game plan by Darrell Bevell too. That's the same kind of stuff he used in 2009 with Harvin, Rice, Peterson and Favre to carve up the Packers. A modernized...

    Seems to me that either the NFL leadership didn't care about this issue in any serious way or the leagues investigative branch must be tremendously bad at their jobs. I don't think they're all that...

    How the heck did Riverboat Ron and Derek Matthew Anderson win that game? We're talking about the fellow who smiled his way out of Arizona (and today replaced the guy with the fake smile), with a cast...

    I understand the desire to pin the blame on 'media', it happens everywhere these days, sport is no exception. The odd thing I can't quite get my head around is where the demand is generated. First...

    Fact'ish. I'm sure there is a 13 y/o out there somewhere that will outdo JJ and Andrew in time.



    Crap, but hope he does it anyway. Unlike a superhuman RB, most players go through a lot of pain...

    I was surprised the penalty against Irsay was as large as it is.

    As for the Cowboys... I can't judge what goes on in the football part of the operation, but the back office (where I do have some...

    I'm glad it's almost over now. I need to enlist a couple helpers for next year though.

    The Jet's tried doing things in a very interesting fashion on twitter, doling out one or two confirmed cut(s)...

    The fan base is just as filled will paranoia and doubt as any other but because many of them have never seen prolonged awfulness they're far more annoying (too much entitlement me thinks). For some,...

    I created a confidence version but bungled the name and of course I can't edit it. The id is 35603 (same password).

    Patrick if you want me to nuke it and start again, let me know.

    I also found...

    I have a sneaky suspicion that the Pats somehow got the best of the Mankins for Wright deal, but their track record with defensive backs is not nearly as good. Jemea Thomas of Georgia Tech was let...

    I don't think I'm a hater either, but less really can be more.

    It's nice to see that Phil Simms is in mid-season form. Yeesh.

    Not only did he talk about Packers safety depth, but he had a practical example where he said it helps players get some rest and can...

    It's 45 minutes on a good day, say Saturday afternoon. Friday afternoon? More like 90 minutes.

    On the plus side, Jayrone Elliott and Adrian Hubbard made a splash later in the game taking turns playing with the Rams football throwing pinata.

    As an outsider I'm not sure exactly what Bill wants. I've read accounts of him advocating for eliminating the extra point before but had missed him pushing to make it more difficult.

    I don't believe the coaches like this change (Bill Belichick just wants 200 foot high bars), I do recall Peter King wining about this for several years, which eventually trickled down elsewhere. The...
