Although Gregg Easterbrook has left us for the greener pastures of NFL.com, we're providing the "unofficial official" discussion thread of Tuesday Morning Quarterback each week. Plus, a new cartoon from Jason Beattie gives comfort and sympathy to John Carney.

This week, Russell takes a look at the six teams headed to the AFC playoffs, each of which has one obvious weakness. Also this week: Randy Moss does his best impression of Andre 3000, Delaware does its best impression of Michigan, Ben Roethlisberger does his best impression of a top ten pick, and Joe Namath does his best impression of a staggering wino.

OK, so our offensive and defensive line numbers have only included run blocking so far. What about pass blocking? Aaron takes the sacks per pass attempt statistic used by the folks over at Football Project, tweaks it a little bit, and runs the 2003 numbers.

"Playoffs? You want to talk about playoffs? Are you kidding me? Playoffs?" -- Jim Mora. This is also the thread for a running discussion on all of this weekend's games, so check back often!

Aaron answers some common questions about the site and the statistics we use. Why use VOA instead of just yards, where are the archived articles, how is the database created? Plus, a few comments about this week's games, and Dick Vermeil says something stupid.

Even though Gregg Easterbrook has left us for the greener pastures of NFL.com, we know that the discussion threads we provided during his short stay at our site were very popular. Therefore we're providing the "unofficial official" discussion thread of Tuesday Morning Quarterback each week. Plus, a new cartoon from Jason Beattie.

The latest VOA ratings are here, measuring how each NFL team has performed on a play-by-play basis. This week's commentary includes more on the ridiculous consistency of the New England Patriots. Plus, notes on running backs: Why is Baltimore's rushing attack rated so low in our statistics? And which was the best rushing day of 2003: Jamal Lewis' 295 yards or Clinton Portis' five touchdowns? (Hint: Neither.)

This year the Raiders and (probably) the Bucs will miss the playoffs. Michael David Smith asks: Why are we so surprised? In the era of unpredictability, Super Bowl teams regularly miss the playoffs the next year... and often return to the playoffs the year after.

Bring us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... and your homeless football columnists seeking asylum. This week Russell Levine moves over from the on-hiatus Football Network website with his weekly comments on pigskin both college and pro. This week: Joe Horn makes a call, Rich McKay makes a move, and Auburn makes a big mistake.

With his fourth column for us, we hereby shift Michael David Smith from "guest columnist" to "Football Outsider," which means he eventually gets a cartoon of himself drawn by Jason Beattie. Never one to shy from controversy, Mike devotes his first article as "a regular" to defending Patriots punter-turned-ex-punter-turned-punter-again Ken Walter. The secret lies not in the length of punts, but in the length of returns.
