The TDZ season kicks off with a new format: all play diagrams, all the time. This week, Mike Tanier breaks down footage of Eli Manning to learn just what the Giants quarterback is doing wrong. It turns out to have nothing to do with funny pregame speeches.

The FO staff gives its predictions on the 2007 season, guaranteed to be wrong in one way or another for every single staff member. But, hey, we're a football site, and the season's starting, so it's prediction time.

We'll be honest: Scramble for the Ball gets pretty dorky this week. Mid-90's video games? Check. ABC TGIF opening? Check. The rules for a Yahoo league approximating PAR? Check. I think the only thing missing is ... oh, wait. D&D references? Check.

Last year, Mike Tanier kicked off his Too Deep Zone column by introducing a revolutionary strategy for winning football games. The strategy was so revolutionary, in fact, that we're going to kick off the 2007 season -- and every season to come -- with the same article. Welcome to the column that became somewhat of a FO manifesto.
