I think a lot of people on this side respect the work of Aaron Schatz and his crew from Football Outsiders. The Football Outsiders Almanac is a must-read every year, and I thought it would be interesting to post something from each of the teams' chapters on this forum and get some conversation going. Out of respect to Football Outsiders, I won't post here what their projected record or playoff percentages are, but just an interesting tidbit from the team's chapter to see what their fans think.
So, for the Carolina Panthers:
Really interesting stat - last year the Panthers called a running play on 3rd down and 6+ yards to go 33 times, about 3 times the league average. Obviously, the Panthers have a strong running game - but was this because they didn't trust Delhomme to throw the ball anymore or are DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart just that good?
