Did you expect Terrell Owens to have such a dramatic effect on the Philadelphia offense? You shouldn't have. It turns out that the improvement in Philadelphia is unprecendented when compared to other recent situations where a star receiver changed teams. And a closer look at Donovan McNabb's numbers shows that the improvement is almost entirely driven by Owens. Michael David Smith and Aaron Schatz investigate in an expanded version of an article previously available in the New York Sun.

The competition gets even tougher this week, as Russell's entire family is getting into the act. This also serves as the college open thread to discuss all this weekend's NCAA action.

Here are the Football Outsiders team efficiency ratings after Week 7, although without Aaronâ€™s usual commentary for the math-o-phobic (he's a bit under the weather). Lots of turnover this week as the teams ranked three through seven last week all lost, and many unexpected teams won.
