Economists try to learn lessons about the real world by looking at relatively simplistic mathematical models of reality. These simple models have proven valuable in uncovering how markets work. Bruce Stram just happens to be an economist and he's applied the techniques of economic theory to the world of the NFL salary cap. Students, welcome to Caponomics 101.

Baltimore replaces its offensive coordinator, Cincinnati replaces its defensive coordinator, and Cleveland tosses everyone over the side of the boat. Plus, who's your daddy: Plaxico Burress, or T.J. Whosyourdaddy? (I'm sorry, the mention of those two names just made Baltimore fans slobber on themselves. Don't even say "Randy Moss" around them.) Ryan Wilson has a trip through America's industrial heartland in the latest edition of Four Downs.

The NFC North's most popular player might retire. The NFC North's most controversial (and most talented) player might get traded. Every team in the NFC North has replaced a coordinator. Lots of fun speculation ahead in the second edition of our new feature, Four Downs.

Like Joe Montana, Al and Vivek are already looking forward to the NFL of tomorrow. The final Scramble for the Ball of the season takes a look at the players in the Second Annual Football Outsiders Offseason Contest and the early future lines for the winner of next year's Super Bowl. Plus, yet another look back at the Super Bowl, the final results of the Football Outsiders fantasy playoff league and last, but not least, the Keep Choppin' Wood Award.

You've heard a lot in the last week about the Patriots and their standing in history. Now, Football Outsiders presents two takes on the argument that will rage all offseason long. First, Aaron Schatz asks how the 2004 Patriots compare to the teams discussed in Eddie Epstein's book Dominance. Then Ned Macey uses his own criteria to compare the Patriots to the greatest teams of the Super Bowl era.

Aaron empties out his Super Bowl notebook with comments on strategy, blitz pickup, and bubble gum. Plus, a bonus transcript of his Monday chat at ESPN.com. Two columns for the price of one.

Rodney Harrison, for whom Russell also has the utmost respect, is probably fuming on Monday because the pundits are spending more time talking about what the Eagles did to lose the Super Bowl than what New England did to win it. But how many times do the Patriots have to win close games before people figure out the reason: they're just better.

The New England Patriots have shut down the unstoppable Colts and walked all over the impenetrable Steelers. Now the Philadelphia Eagles will attempt to stand astride their march towards history, yelling "Stop." With help from Michael David Smithâ€™s tape analysis, added notes from resident Eagles fan Mike Tanier, injury analysis from Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus, and our Football Outsiders statistics, Aaron previews Super Bowl XXXIX.
